However, there are also detrimental effects that have occurred for both human safety and the environment. (change from pic 14 – 15). The most devastating are nuclear disasters that have occurred in which a nuclear power plant fails. Tsunamis, earthquakes and other natural disasters often attribute to this; however, there are also other issues with explosives and fires. (change from pic 15 – 16). When this occurs, the air becomes contaminated and can poison those that are in the vicinity. (change from pic 16 – 17 + 18). The largest of these was seen in March of 2011 with the collapse of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant as a result of a tsunami and earthquake that caused a meltdown of the plant (Mark, Willacy, 2011: p.Voiceover: (change from pic 18 – 19). The complexities that occur because of disasters are one of many problems that are currently being faced with nuclear power plants. This is combined with environmental hazards that continue to contribute to the problem. (change from pic 19 – 20). Radioactive waste that comes from extra materials is one of the current dangers to the environment. Depleted uranium is another hazard, specifically because this is harming the environment. (Change from pic 20 -21). This is combined with carbon emissions from nuclear power, which may be contributing to the overall damage and pollution that is within the environments (Sovacool, 2008: p. (change from pic 21 – 22). The question now remains of how effective nuclear power is and how much damage will be caused before we realize that it may not be the best solution to energy.The storyboard which I created on nuclear power and the different effects that it had allowed me to recognize various capabilities that the storyboard has while organizing information in an alternative manner. The combined elements that were used provided me with the capacity of understanding how to organize this type of information while combining the needed effects to get a specific point across. I noted that there was a specific progression which I had to follow for this to work effectively while keeping the main goals in mind toward the end to ensure that the point was made in an effective manner.The first concept which I incorporated into the storyboard was based on incorporating meaning. This was taken from the ideology that to communicate effectively, there is also the need to create a meaning out of the information
