Energy Problems in Japan after losing its oil refinery plants and nuclear plants

Japan is having severe energy problems after losing its oil refinery plants and nuclear plants from earth quakes and tsunamis. A half million homeless Japanese people are suffering with low temperature, limited electricity, and lack of oils while being huddled in evacuation centers. Most of them can’t even operate their heaters, cell phones, and cars. Furthermore, waters and foods are contaminated by radioactivity. Since we don’t know when severe earthquakes occur, we need to prepare for this kind of situation. Also, we need to prepare the time when we consumed all the natural resources because Japan’s tragic situation can be occur without earthquakes and tsunami. Therefore, we should place nuclear plants on safe places and buy products which can be operated and charged by human labor or solar energy for emergency. Finally, coastal nations should reconsider their long-range energy plan.
