I have come to the conclusion that I paint, acquire knowledge and ask why because I need to. If I was painting a tribute, then like you I would be painting because I cared. :heart:

THanK YoU Andre! We need to stand together to show solitary with the Japanese in these troublesome times. Its a way of repaying them for giving us so much beauty and technology.

Amazing piece Des :wow: the colors are wonderful, :love: and the wondrous light traveling up the bend,,great tribute for another major disaster, unbelieveable to fully comprehend!! I'm against nuclear power and the tremendeous impact it has on all living organisms, it can never, never be safe enough, imho!! It's really so scary...But your painting IS FANTASTIC!!

:aww: THanK YoU, Xeena dear! I fully comprehend your fears on nuclear safety! Unless we have the technology to encapsulate nuclear leaks and waste instead of just 'burying' them, it can never be safe. I hope people are not so naive anymore especially in this very informative age :nod:

I was so stunned to see all the devastation that nature had a hand in. So many lives lost. Shocking and so sad. I feel for the people who survived and are looking for loved ones.

Your picture is lovely, dear Desmond. :hug:

It's so terrible. Three disasters at once.

The nuclear disaster part is unclear up till now. However, we're not looking for acute but rather chronic radiation. So far, the levels do seem to be vastly variable. Frequent monitoring of all prefectures is very important.

Yes. I understand that there is a high risk of meltdown. It won't be quite like Chernobyl but if the winds are bringing escaping particles down towards Tokyo and the land there will be a big problem.

France has about 56 reactors. The oldest one is on a fault line not far from us and near my daughter.
This crisis is causing a lot of nervous discussion here. The authorities always play down the danger as do the Japanese it seems.

I heard that the Japanese Shintoist culture teaches that men are part of nature and must live with the ups and downs. That's what gives them relative calm in natural disasters. However they are very nervous about this nuclear crisis which is in another domain. Being bombed by the US traumatised them deeply.

It's so upsetting.

Didn't know that you're situated close-by the nuclear reactor. That's the idea the locals here suggested when the authorities first suggested to have the first nuclear plant a few days before the tsunami happened - to build it right next to their federal admin building! Fortunately, we're not situated in the fault line :)

France is in a seismic zone all along the south coast, in the centre, although that part has extinct volcanos and in the mountainous regions, even the oldest ones.
There is a small rift valley between France and Germany, with a low mountain ridge each side covered in fir trees. The broad river Rhine runs down the central plain and the nuclear installation is built on the bank on our side. I suppose it was put there to allow a constant supply of water.
There is a lot of discussion at the moment. France draws 70% or more of its electric energy from this power source.
We need to convert to renewable and less dangerous sources.

Asian countries, in particular China, are pushing to continue with their nuclear programs. I wonder if the human race have run out of options or are we doing it out of greed for more power. We can't afford to have more of these sitting on earthquake prone regions. Right now, I'd rather be living in James Cameron's Pandora :)

It seems to me that mankind is too prone to be optimistic. We think that the worse can never happen and we can handle what problems might arise.
Taking risks has made our species develop but we don't seem able to judge correctly.

Looking at it as an aspie, there are 2 things about neurotypical people - they don't really feel the need to expose their weaknesses and they are intellectually dishonest, meaning they will say one thing but not mean what they say. Not surprisingly, anything can go wrong if you take it from that perspective.
