ATS part of NWO? Um...I really don't think so.
Fukushima was obviously not a kamikaze attack. If you have evidence, please post it.
The Fukushima quake, magnitude 9.0, struck about 70 km off the coast of Japan on March 11, 2011.
It sent a 15-meter tsunami crashing over perfectly undamaged bridges, houses, roads, and cars -- over a populace which had not been warned of the incoming tsunami, because there was no mag 9.0 earthquake. They were taken completely off-guard. Yet helicopters were waiting, and people all over Japan got to watch the tsunami roll in on live TV.
A 9.0-magnitude earthquake is more than 100 times stronger than a 6.8.
A 9.0 should have devastated everything within a 1,000-km radius.
Thus, in response to the precious lessons from the Kobe Earthquake, the Japanese government enacted "the Law for Promotion of Seismic Retrofit of Buildings," in December 1995. In accordance with the law, existing buildings of more than certain floor area for public use shall be retrofitted to satisfy the seismic performance level equivalent to the current code requirement at the time of renovation.*(pdf)

In the second 2 i knew that the event was not right, i smell the lie and i had posted a thread (Fukushima kamikaze attack and ATS removed to recycle bin ?!?!?!?), and now this ?!?!? WTF??!
Is ATS property of NWO or not??? why they censor in the nazi manners the threads ??, if this will be found as true how ATS censor guy will pay for throw ideas of people to the garbage just because THEY ARE NOW ON POWER???edit on 10-2-2012 by sabalsis1972 because: (no reason given)

The following is from one of the many technical reports I've read of the earthquake and subsequent 'nuclear emergency.' I've since forgotten which one it is, but I can go dig through them later if anyone is interested.
To generate the tsunami which resulted from The Great Tohoku Earthquake of 2011 you would had to have been able to displace approximately 125 cubic kilometers of water within a few seconds.
Building and Infrastructure Losses
As of September 30 th , 2011, over 900000 buildings had been damaged by the tsunami and earthquake. When dividing these into coastal and non-coastal municipalities the following distribution results. It should be noted that coastal municipalities generally go much inland, and a much greater percentage was not impacted by the tsunami, than was.
As of September 30 th , 2011, 3559 roads have been reported to be damaged, 77 bridges, 45 dikes and 29 railway locations. In addition around 200 landslides have been reported. The data seems to be incomplete however from many locations, as Chiba has reported 2343 damaged roads, with other prefectures where much shaking occurred reporting much less damage.
You want to talk about some real, human damage done in this scenario, let's look at this section from the above linked page:
When looking at the total impact in Fukushima with the forced evacuations due to the nuclear plant, once all people were found and those who evacuated were counted, the total of the population who went to shelters and other prefectures was around 134000 people of which around 90000-110000 were evacuees of the Fukushima plant disaster and between 24000 and 44000 were probably earthquake and tsunami impacted. Other influences may have included the gas, water and power outages, landslides and torrential rain that were also present.
As of 30 th September 2011, around 56,000 people are living outside the prefecture from Fukushima, and around 50,000 internally (of which at least 42,000 are from the nuclear affected towns).
These are real people who have their lives turned upside down by a combination of natural disaster, and the incredible short-sightedness of Tepco.
A little more interesting information is the ionospheric distrubance recorded 3 days prior to the quake:
Our first results show that on March 8th a rapid increase of emitted infrared radiation was observed from the satellite data and an anomaly developed near the epicenter. The GPS/TEC data indicate an increase and variation in electron density reaching a maximum value on March 8. Starting on this day in the lower ionospheric there was also confirmed an abnormal TEC variation over the epicenter. From March 3-11 a large increase in electron concentration was recorded at all four Japanese ground based ionosondes, which return to normal after the main earthquake. We found a positive correlation between the atmospheric and ionospheric anomalies and the Tohoku earthquake. This study may lead to a better understanding of the response of the atmosphere /ionosphere to the Great Tohoku earthquake.
Atmosphere-Ionosphere Response to the M9 Tohoku Earthquake Revealed by Joined Satellite and Ground Observations. Preliminary results
You want a conspiracy angle to pursue? Go research how many seismic precursors can be found surrounding the quake and start asking yourself, " what did they know and when did they know it?"
It is too soon to develop good estimates of the likely economic and financial effects of last Friday’s massive earthquake and subsequent devastating tsunami, particularly with the situation in the damaged nuclear plants still unresolved. However, a comparison with the effects of the major earthquake that struck Kobe, Japan on January 17, 1995, may provide some useful reference points.
That earthquake, known in the US as the “Kobe Earthquake” and officially in Japan as “The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Disaster,” measured 6.8 in magnitude, compared with 8.9 for the Tohoku earthquake. The magnitude scale used by the US Geological Survey is not linear. Friends in Japan have indicated that the energy released by last Friday’s quake was some 200 times that released by the Kobe quake. Unlike the Kobe quake, the Tohoku quake was centered offshore, generating the tsunami.
The Kobe quake struck at Japan’s industrial heartland. The affected regions accounted for 12.4% of Japan’s GDP in 1995. The five prefectures most affected by the Tohoku quake are not as industrialized as the Kobe quake region. They account for about 7.8% of GDP.
Following the Kobe quake, industrial production dropped in the month of January but then advanced by 2.2% in February and 1% in March. The effect on Japan’s GDP was imperceptible. That was despite the estimated $120 billion in damages (at today’s exchange rate), which then equaled 2.5% of Japan’s GDP.
In view of the above considerations and the Kobe precedent, some analysts are already predicting that the effects of the Tohoku earthquake on Japan’s economy will be minor and mostly transitory. We hope this will prove to be the case, but based on the limited information we have to date, we think there is a certain risk the Japanese economy will be hit harder and take longer to adjust than was the case in 1995.
The economic loss estimates from CATDAT were distributed on earthquake-report.com with the release of $100 billion to $500 billion estimate (total, with 70% coming from tsunami), created after 70 minutes. The uncertainties came about because of the great uncertainties in modelling losses given certain intensities and the uncertainties in damage ratios and industries affected. In later versions, the economic losses from the tsunami reduced to around 57% vs. the earthquake at 43%.
Around 48% of the total losses are tsunami-based, 42% expected to be earthquake-based and around 10% to be due to the 70000 residents within the evacuation zones including the decommissioning of the Fukushima plant.
From historical quakes and looking at business interruption, for a $280 billion direct economic loss from this earthquake, around $110 billion (2-yr) to $220 billion (5-yr) in extra indirect losses could be expected. Further analysis will be needed over the coming years.
This is the highest economic loss from any earthquake historically, eclipsing the approximately $210 billion loss (2011-adjusted) from the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake.
