After Chernobyl and Three

After Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, you would think that people would learn, but the spring of 2011 brought the tsunami to Japan with a monumental nuclear disaster. Nuclear power may not be entirely in the ground, but in too many places you can find toxic, nuclear waste as well as radiation buried underground. Some barrels with this scary stuff are actually above the ground. One place to store it is as bad as the next. Dumping it in the ocean or sending it off into space isn’t a viable option either. After the incidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, the health of both areas was compromised, which can also be said for Japan. Winds move radiation to all parts of the globe after any nuclear incident and we just don’t need these disasters to be repeated. The people of Japan suffered greatly in April 1945 with the dropping of the two bombs, and in 2011, more radiation was showered down. You can insist that it’s a local problem, but it isn’t.
Any nuclear meltdown affects all of humanity and all of the earth. Technology helped develop the bomb and nuclear possibilities, like medicine and energy, but at what costs? It hasn’t solved the problem of accidents, despite all the checks and balances and hasn’t come up with a way to dispose of spent nuclear fuel. What about all the accidents that happened which we don’t know about? There are more than have been reported.
Innovation is not without fault if there’s no foresight. Too many ideas don’t include the possible repercussions that could come from failure or any kind of problem. Backups might be nice, but they can fail, even with a group of them. That I’ve seen on more than one occasion. A better approach is a safer one, backing off. Renewable energy might appear to be more expensive, but in the long run it saves money. Nuclear power was said to be so cheap, but no one figured in health costs or environmental destruction. Everyone ignored the damage to the population and the earth. Another consideration not to be ignored in the calculations is litigation, which could bring down any corporation.

It's past time for the truth

It's past time for the truth about nuclear energy to be made public.

It's past time for radiation

It's past time for radiation and nuclear truth. We should have easily downloadable guidelines, like there are for GMOs. Citizen scientists should do our own research. We should have geiger counters, while we still can.

Fukushima is polluting the

Fukushima is polluting the Pacific along with the the leaking Hanford repository on the Columbia
River in the United States. The Atlantic Ocean is being polluted from an ongoing leak at Sellafield, England. We are in an international nuclear pollution crisis and we must protect life NOW, while there is hope. We need to know what is in our food and have standards that promote healthy children. Nuclear exposure is additive. The less, the better.

ask japane to give the real

ask japane to give the real information about fokushima....we have to save the people and the ocean...at least to save the world......
