What a natural devastating disaster in Japan? I am in a different country but after watching the pictures of devastation in TV and other media sources, my eyes got wet. Then I thought what the reason was for this? Was it the earthquake or the tsunami that happened after the quake. For me, these were secondary reasons. Countries like Japan are at high risk seismic zone, we always knew it. But the entire world is at much more higher risk that we are not realizing now. But, Japan must be realizing it. Yes, you are right, I am discussing about dangerous nuclear radiations.
Nuclear reactors are built by many countries to achieve their energy demand. Now suppose, these reactors run successfully for 20 years, ok for 30 years or may be for 50 years. But suddenly what happened a natural disaster occurs may be earthquake, or anything, or sudden accident can occur. Then what will happen, a devastation! Life may vanish in few days.
All the countries are making weapons for defense but some day these can lead to the self destruction.
But question can be asked here, then where to meet the energy demand, if not nuclear energy. My dear friends, there are many sources of energy if we properly utilize them it. For example, wind energy, sun energy, energy from non-edible plants (that is biodiesel from non-edible plants), geo-thermal energy and there can be so many other energy sources. Need of the hour is to look for them and promote them.
We as people of a nation also have responsibility towards it. We all know that energy sources are few but we are using it like anything. Imagine a situation (that may happen), when there will not be petrol or diesel to run your car!! So, at least we can delay that situation if not for ourselves may be for our future generation. But how!
Remember, “Energy saved is energy created”. If you are going to purchase something from a destination that is about 1 or 2 km or 3 km, then you can use a bi-cycle for this. If you will not use it now, remember one day you will be compelled to use it. By doing this, you will not only save the energy but improve your health.
We occasionally went to hill stations and said that what a good pollution-free weather.
But we are responsible for the polluted weather in our cities.
Not more to write now. I am giving you the food for your thought. I am trying to contribute towards the betterment of the society by my writing. I do not that how much I will be successful. But at least I am trying. Are you?
