Tsunami Destruction in Japan

The last count was 300,000 scrap cars left in the ruins of the largest natural catastrophe that hit the shores of Japan for hundreds of years. Who knows how many cars were lost to the depths of the ocean. The devastation was horrible as I watched the satellite footage. Last week I watched a documentary about ocean volcanoes. I was reminded of Japan’s wave of destruction. The cameras caught the actively of these ocean volcanoes continually spewing towers of smoke as they churned the waters of the Atlantic ocean near Iceland. I have never seen anything like it. Japan has been known for its vulnerability for some time. This did not discourage growth in population and industry. The rebuilding of Japan is under way. These scrap cars will be used to erect new buildings. Steel reinforcing concrete. Did you know 97% of scrap cars are recycled? There’s the silver lining. I was amazed as I saw pictures of vehicles stacked on top of each other, waiting to be fabricated into something productive again. Japan will rise again like the phoenix.
