japans crisis is all of humanities crisis

I am far from an environmental or meteorological expert, & know little to nothing about earth sience & how whats under our feet in the planets core works, none the less I am bewildered that there is so little coverage of what is happening in Japan on MSM.

I understand that Japan is a country who’s population is familiar with rumblings under the ground resulting from its geographical & meteorological status, I guess if you are used to frequent lo magnitude earthquakes then in many ways its normal to you, however I suggest that these sort of tremors although quasi normal are generally spaced over distance and although they may happen simultaneously in different areas with different low risk factor magnitude levels, it is fairly unusual if not all but unheard of, that they rumble over the whole of Japan simultaneously, & surely that is cause for serious concern, not only for the people of Japan, but for the people of the world.

“Japan is sinking” said the tweet,

and I am not an alarmist but i am alarmed, which was why I wrote this in 2013

following on from the 2011 Fukushima disaster.

Around the world environmental experts have been warning us for years about the dangers of climate change, and although politicians may be making big efforts to talk the talk, few seem to be actually walking the walk,and doing something about it.

Meanwhile as the environment and planet, and thus humanity comes under attack as a result of corporate madness,not least from the nuclear energy & fossil fuel industries, the masses go about their day to day business in blind ignorance of the very real & pending threat to life & planet ignoring the warnings of nature & environmental activist who desperately cry WAKE UP.

And how much of this crisis is a result of weather modification, geo engineering and the nuclear insanity of the past 60 + years?

There can surely be little doubt that the Fukushima disaster and on going meltdown & leak crisis has played its part on what is happening in Japan and the whole pacific region, in fact, i’ll go further, as we see environmental chaos around the world as a result of climate change & fossil fuel extraction, pollution & nuclear fallout or waste whither that be from testings, war crimes or the effects of waste product & or from energy plants or depleted munitions.

I am aware that if Japan is sinking there is little to nothing we can do to stop it but surely there should be some sort of contingency plan to save the people & wildlife inhabitants of that nation, or should we Just shrug our shoulders and say thats a shame, as we wait for them all to disappear into the earth’s core and say oops didn’t see that coming!

I am appalled like many others at what our species is doing to this beautiful planet we live on.

I know we cannot change or eradicate the damage we have done but should we not at very least be doing something more to slow down & try to counterbalance the effect of it all now, should we not be seriously making big efforts to preserve our planet & eliminate the risks where & with what means we can with the knowledge & expertise of those who know about these things?

Or should we just think fuck it, the world gonna end soon lets sit back eat tacos and chocolate & drink pop while waiting to die?

It all just saddens me greatly, not because I fear dying but because I feel what a regrettable and shameful end mankind has brought upon this wonderful planet and all that dwells upon it.



I have a keen interest in The Arts as therapy, and as a fundamental tool for understanding, and managing mental health. I love nature, reading, writing, poetry, photography, movies, painting, dance and yoga. And have a keen interest in social issues & humanities.
