This will definitely not be the last disaster in that 'Ring of Fire' that we will hear about, and it will come sooner than we think. After the Chiliean earth quake of 8.8 on the Richter scale in March 2010, the earth moved off its axis enough for us to lose 1.26 micro seconds in a 24 hour day. It doesn't sound a lot, but it was enough to knock planet earth off balance by 3 inches. This has caused the Tectonic plates to readjust and thus cause further earthquakes. It wouldn't take much more imbalance to flip the poles, and many scientist are now expecting this to happen. In view of that, who cares that our beloved gear might be in short supply. Perhaps the old war time saying of
'Make do and Mend'
will be the new philosophy of the decade.
This reminds me of the film 2012 except its not fiction but reality. If you look at human existence in comparison to the age of the earth on a 24hr clock isn't it something like a mere 5mins? When you consider how many millions of years the dinosaurs were here before becoming extinct it makes our own presence seem so short on this planet. Japan's disaster is really beyond words and very terrifying.
