"The situation at Japan's Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant is still dangerous and the plant is facing the possibility of a second explosion. It appears as though radiation from an explosion at the plant could reach up to 100 kilometers. At present, 50 brave workers continue to pour seawater on the reactors. Because there is an increasing risk of radioactive leakage, Kan Naoto has instructed that the evacuation radius be extended by 30 kilometers. The threat of nuclear radiation is already causing panic among some Tokyo residents, and many have already taken the initiative to leave or send their children away".
nǐ shuō héfúshè nàme kěpà ，zěnme hái yào jiàn nàme duō hédiànzhàn a ！
What do you think - if nuclear radiation is so terrible, why do we build so many nuclear power plants?

Nuclear power has its advantages. Traditional resources are in short supply and they create serious environmental pollution. Nuclear power, on the other hand, is a clean source of energy. Actually, nuclear power plants are very safe. The Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant was built in 1971. When it was originally designed, I imagine they had no idea there would be a level 9 earthquake that would lead to a tsunami.

But once there's an accident, it won't be just one place that's contaminated. Like that accident that happened in the former Soviet Union. They say that even hundreds of years won't completely get rid of the radioactive pollution.
