Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Tsunami impact on Sendai, Japan


Flooded fields on the tsunami-hit Sendai coast. Some of the fields are still waterlogged a week after the deadly tsunami spawned by the 9.0Mw Tohoku Megaquake caused much destruction along Japan’s eastern coast of Honshu.

Death Toll

Death toll in Japan’s twin disasters has reached about 7,400 with up to 11,000 others still missing.

Less Love for the Japanese Victims?

US charitable organizations have raised $64 million for Japan since the Tohoku Megaquake struck last Friday, a report said.

Six days after the Haiti earthquake struck, however, the same charities had raised $210 million. And in a similar period after Hurricane Katrina hit the US Gulf Coast they had raised $457 million.

Canadians also donated far less money to Japan than they did Haiti, a report said.

In the week following Haiti’s devastating quake last year, the Humanitarian Coalition (CARE Canada, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Québec and Save the Children Canada) raised $3.5 million. In the last 7 days, however, they have only raised $450,000 for Japan.

One reason might be that donors no longer trust charity organizations. They are wising up to the money black hole created by the international charity mafia. The sad fact is a great number of charities eat up as much as 95% of the contribution dollars. [See also comments about Haiti donations posted on this blog.]

The city of Rikuzentakata (population: 24,000) in Japan’s Iwate prefecture was almost entirely obliterated after the 9.0Mw megaquake and ensuing deadly tsunami struck. The above false-color images were taken by the ASTER instrument on NASA’s Terra satellite before and after the disaster. Source: NASA-EO.

The Human Toll

The official death toll in the Megaquake and the tsunami disasters, which is based on names registered with the authorities, stands at 5,695 perished with 9,503 people listed as missing, as of posting. Fire-Earth has previously stated that the actual death toll could reach into tens of thousands due to the severity of the twin catastrophes, a fear that has now been echoed by the Kyodo News Agency.

Homeless and Displaced

Up to 400,000 people are currently in temporary shelters, mostly school gymnasiums, enduring severe shortages of water food, warm clothing, heating fuel and all other basic essentials.

Aftershocks

The disaster zone is still bombarded with aftershocks, which are expected to continue for many weeks, possibly months. About 340 significant aftershocks (Magnitude ≥5.0) have swarmed the region since the Megaquake struck exactly a week ago.
