Humans are supposed to be at the top of the food chain but we do not respect the power we have been given. The human invention of nuclear power will probably be the gift of our own destruction of our species. The earthquake in Japan is a gift from mother nature to us to remind us that we need to find safer alternative sources of the power we cherish. We already threw out manual typewriters for power everything writing. We cannot even open a can lately without power. Even our pianos are thrown out for powered keyboards. Hopefully the civilized quiet humbled Japanese will have the courage to continue and prosper even after this giant punch from mother nature.
