The Quake & Ramifications

March 12, 2011

Obviously devastates Japan, worldwide its caused the earth to shift on its access. Volcanoes in Japan, Russia, and Indonesia have also gone off.

The Nuclear reactors are in serious trouble, and thats 6800mw of power. Japan will have to turn to alternative fuels (reactor=238k barrels/day). If you recall, China has a rare earths embargo on Japan. Curious to see if that stick.

This is good news for China, who has been knocking heads with Japan over several things. I’d think China makes some kind of move here, not sure what yet but remember the fishing trawler incident (japan took a chinese ship). Japan is our major ally in the region, and this certainly takes them off the international scene for a bit.
