Tsunami, Nuclear Power and Humans
The developing crisis with the nuclear power plants is a completely different mess. We did not create nuclear reactions. But someone did put together highly concentrated uranium, to build nuclear power plants. Presumably it started from curiosity, followed by a desire to harness the tremendous power within, for the benefit of mankind. Here we ignore, generously, its evil twin - the nuclear weapons. In the process, we humans have created a monster which we cannot completely control. It is a disaster that we did bring on ourselves.
