Biggest event no doubt is Euro Crisis. Euro has never been so weak against dollar. Euro Zone near collapse, imminent danger of Third World War when Euro collapses.

Check out this link: The 10 Biggest Events of 2011

Fukushima is number 7 on that list. It should be number 2 or 3 at least, in my opinion.


7. Nuclear power plants in Japan In March, an axis-shifting earthquake and subsequent tsunami devastated Japan's eastern coastlines. There were nearly 16,000 deaths, 6,000 injured and 3,500 people missing after the tsunami and earthquake.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was affected as well, leading to various explosions in active cooling towers, the leakage of radiation and evacuation of surrounding cities. In reaction to Japan's disaster, countries all over the world began to assess their energy programs. Germanyshut down multiple reactors and intends to shut down the rest of the reactors over the next decade.

They are #2 on the list I mentioned above:


2.
Occupy Wall Street As one war ended this year, another has been declared. Occupy Wall Street was the voice of the majority, affectionately calling themselves the 99 percent, speaking out against corporate greed.

Whole list is ridiculous. I laughed when I saw Steve Jobs at #8. This man is really overrated man, they say he invented computer, but it was Steve Wozniak. Now Steve Wozniak is totally forgotten man, everyone talking about Steve Jobs, but not him. Steve Jobs didn't had any part making Apple I and Apple II

BTW, this list is just biggest events for US, for rest of world it would be different.

You are right my friend, Steve jobs is highly over rated partly because of all the apple consumers, and because of the way he died. he was the creator of something amazing though so it was going too get a lot of publicity when he died

We should also count a non-event that cost people their money and houses: The Rapture.

It was all over the news in a lot of countries, and then when the date came and nothing happened... well, you remember. Then Mr. Camping came forward with another date and it was all over the news again. And nothing happened.

Even if it didn't really happen, it affected people's lives.

Not all of them are of the US. But I agree with the Steve Jobs one, it's not the I'd forgotten about his death it's just that I didn't expect to see him there.

Is it me or has most people simply forgotten about Steve jobs dying? I have...
This is kinda off-topic but i heard a joke saying this, years ago we had, steve jobs,bob hope and jonny cash. Now we have no jobs,no hope and no cash

As for the occupy thing i wonder if it actually made a difference, personally i havent noticed any...

Steve Jobs dying was such a massive event in 2011....how sad it was. Makes you think what if over 10 million people died of starvation in 2011 because the rest of their fellow species were indifferent....wouldn't that be madness.....

Yes its sad but you have too ask why and was it really that important? For some it was but did it really need front page headlines?
