      Heya Badboychav, the Japanese have already learnt a lot from the terrible earthquake in last few months. This was a huge earthquake, it was a 9 on the Richter scale, not very many of those are seen. The Japanese are going to move away from nuclear power, after the Fukushima disaster. I think it is a real shame. Nuclear energy provides so much energy and if handled right should be clean and safe. Although in this case, they made huge mistakes. Mainly keeping a nuclear plant open that should have been closed years ago. Japan doesn’t have a huge amount of space to use windmills to generate energy, so it is hard to see what they will do to meet their going energy demand.

      I think in 10 years, the Japanese will be strong again, producing excellent electronics (like the 3DS) and will start to use renewable energy.
