Japans role in the future of the planet. The threat of radioactive contamination

 

Have you noticed that all of the nuclear facilities in Japan are located directly on the beach, just a few meters from the water line and near-zero height? And this in a region where the earthquake and tsunami, in general, is a familiar thing. How is this possible? After all, any ordinary earthquake could lead to such consequences that Fukushima seem just a little incident.

Liquefaction of soils increased destruction in Japan

Earthquake in Japan would not have caused such catastrophic damage if they were not accompanied by an unusually strong liquefaction of soils in an area of hundreds of square kilometers. This is the conclusion of a team of researchers at Oregon State University, who worked on the site of earthquakes.

Due to the fact that the earth has suddenly become unstable, many buildings moved from their seats, tilt and partially left in the soil, although they are not directly earthquake damaged. Shifts diluted soil destroyed not only buildings, but also water, sewer and gas pipelines in the number of
