Do we need nuclear power for sustainable energy production?
The nuclear plant disaster at Fukushima is small compared to the natural disaster that caused it.
Tens of thousands of people were killed by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami while radiation from Fukushima injured no members of the public and killed no one.
Fukushima was hit by a devastating earthquake, 9 on the Richter scale, which can cause huge damage for a thousand kilometers from the epicenter.
The earthquake triggered a 13 to 15m (43 to 49 ft)-high tsunami with dirt and rocks.
Years after, the Fukushima disaster is still going on, and will probably continue for years.
