Japan's Ambassador to the U.S. says 10% of Japan's households are without power

Japan's Ambassador to the United States, Ichiro Fujisaki, was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, and gave an update on his country. "Six million households are out of electricity," he told Piers Morgan. "That's more than 10% of Japan's households."

One of the most pressing issues during the live hour was the safety of Japan's nuclear power plants. "There is information that radioactive material is increasing, and we are trying to identify the source, cause and effect of that," said Fujisaki.

    Piers you must interview piers corbyn to explain the reason and his pedictions of our weather this year. He will soon become the Einstein of today's weather men. Ps you and your show are Awesome!
    Corbyns long range forecasts are 90% accurate.

    I don't believe that the world is coming end,these are just signs for us to take the issue of global warming seriously and fashion out ways to take immediate actions in saving the world.

    Ok Piers Morgan had some 3 stuge guys on tonight. These guys are ignorant. The truth is that the sun is aligning with the center of the galaxy-A black hole! The amount of pull on the earth and the surrounding planetary objects are changing. Gravity is a mystery that many people do not understand. The moon is at low tide. What happens to a body when it is at low fever? Homeostatis. Lots of small effectors together allows things like plates to snap. Watch the metaphysics of this planet change in the months to come. How many of you had dogs that were acting funky the last few nights? Find someone that studies quantum physics and metaphysics. This is not psychology it is Einstienian.

    Figures are based in order of magnitude. Like earthquakes a '10' is 10 times greater than a '9' and 100 times greater than a '8' rating. So as expected the Sun's gravitational effect upon the Earth at '10.0' is over a hundred times more powerful than the Moon's influence at '7.7'. And the Moon's gravitational effect is about 100 times more powerful than that of Jupiter at '5.8'. So the first piece of information that we cn derive from the science is that the force of the Sun and Moon on the Earth is hundreds of times stronger than that of the planets. Imagine the change over the entire cosmos!

    To help to understand the relative force of gravity of the planets upon us let us look at some comparisons. Pluto's force of attraction would be equivalent to that of someone about 100 yards away. But if there were a hundred people or a thousand this influence would grow. Hence Pluto has to do with mass movements – the Public – the People, rather than individuals. The force of the rest of the planets is fairly equivalent to humans in conversation at a variety of distances – perhaps a lecturer for Neptune and an intimate dialogue for Jupiter. The Moon is equivalent to hugging someone, while the Sun's gravitational effect would be equivalent to the force of gravity between two people who were having &^%.

    Note that the attractive force of gravity between two individuals will never pull someone over. In fact it is negligible compared with that of the Earth. However lest we underestimate the impact of this gravitational pull remember that the gravitational impact of the Sun and Moon on the Earth is the cause of our tides which vary tremendously depending on what relation the Sun and Moon are in. When they are conjunct or in opposition, i.e. a New Moon and Full Moon respectively, the tides are most extreme. While if the Sun and Moon are square to each it results in the Neap Tide which has the least variation. Remember in this context that we humans are mostly made of water, which would be similarly influenced by these tidal forces induced by the interaction of the gravity of the Sun and Moon. How can I explain.....Of course the gravitational force of the other celestial objects is hundreds of times weaker than that of the Moon. But the human sensors are incredibly sensitive. We are able to detect a single photon, the smallest particle of light, with our eyes. We are able to hear molecules beating upon our eardrums – are able to detect the most delicate tastes with our toungue – and the slightest caress of the breeze upon our skin. Most of us have had the experience of sensing someone entering a room even though we can't see them – no matter how quietly they move. And frequently we can sense someone behind us or the presence of other humans in a room even if we can't see or hear them. Of course moving forces, including gravity, cause more of a disturbance than static forces. Note how turbulent it is when children are rushing around even if they never bump into us.

    I get it so then the black whole pulls the gravity of the sun towards IT!. JK this is Orlando Voter.

    I think the cause of this disaster might be because,this countries are too close to the ocean or due to the lower plateaue of the land.And what I can say is that the people of the country should close to God.it might be God anger on them,they start worship God.
