    I wonder how the Japanese were allowed to build so many nuclear plants in such a dangerous area. And they are the people who first on Earth understood how really terrifying the nuclear power is.

    Nobody can thell them they can't.

    Japan's problem is they area small Island country with a large population and limited natural resources. Here in the US we have hydroelectric power and burn a lot of coal to generate electricity.

    Well...

    They have the largest cities, they have a really high energy consumption and the whole country is around a dangerous area. They need to build nuclear plants or invest in future technology. Japan decided to rely on the older technology instead anything else (beside the fact that Japan has no really choice. They need power, they have no ressources to burn in their own country).

    Too long we have tought only about our "needs", but when the Nature decides that it doesn't need us anymore we won't be able to do anything .... unless Hollywood of course - they'll solve the problem using nuclear bombs

    Default Local Tsunami update

    Hwy 1 at Little River Calif was closed most of yesterday due to the tsunami. Open now, and no damage, just a scare. The red line is where the wave reached, the green line is normal high tide line. Notice in the upper right the red arrow, that's the Hwy 1 Little River bridge.

    Must be total chaos. Two Marines and a Sailor in the family in Japan and and a grand nephew who is working in Japan for the Navy.
    Hey ES, tell the wife that the huge pile of heavy gravel in the center is loaded with freshley tumbled and polised bit of abalone shell, a veritable beader's paradice ! For those who don't know what an abalone shell looks like, here's one that borders my planters. To be legal to take , the red abalone must be 7 inch in length, this one is 8 3/4"



    For comaprison here's that 8 3/4" along with one of my largest, 9 7/8" one of two I picked on same free dive.



    The pair of 9 7/8 abs, a pup and a nice scallop, that's a logging train brake key below

    That's a big snail, do you eat them? I know some are used for food, wondering about the big ones.
