Man-Made Disasters

RadiationMankind – always in such a hurry to destroy ourselves. War is always a concern, radiation from the ever-present concerns about nuclear holocaust, but what about combination natural/unnatural disasters like the earthquake and tsunami that resulted in the Fukushima nuclear accident (and resultant radiation poisoning scare) in 2011? Some Man-made disasters, such as Global Warming are not sudden, and we as a species have time to plan and adjust, others are more sudden, but with some warning (wildfires, flooding due to dam failure) and then there are the sudden ones like plane crashes, train derailments, mine and pipeline explosions, and structural collapses. How does one prepare for these? Well, there are some things people acquire like potassium Iodide pills and hazmat suits when they are truly afraid of contamination, but being generally “prepared” is usually the most reasonable thing to do – just make sure your home, work, school, car, and family are ready to evacuate if necessary, or shelter in place with food, water, warmth, shelter and communication if need be.
