    • Dr. Caldicott talks about Kate Browns book. Kate Brown has a powerful, ojective analysis and examination of Chernobyl.

      Before expanding nuclear power to combat climate change, we need answers to the global health effects of radioactivity

      Chernobyl’s disastrous cover-up is a warning for the next nuclear age
      Kate Brown

      Scietists talk about the annihilation of the microbial envirnoment that allows the broke down of dead flora and fauna in the forest surrounding pripyat. Leaves that are on the ground do not decay because there are no microbes to break them down.

      Geez i wonder if the fungus is thriving because all of its mirobiam competition has been wiped out by radionuclides

      As Dr Brown and Dr Caldicott point out, that sellafield was worse than Chernobyl. They have detonated 2000 bombs on us too. There are millions of tons of radionuclide waste in the environment that did not exist before.
      Now there is fukushima and donald trump.
      If we do not do something soon it will be an excruciating extinction event for life on earth from the most mutagenic, teratogenic, toxix, carcinogenic, substances in the world.

  2. Politics in America are very dirty. Politics in america are so corrupt, that there is little democracy when it comes to nuclear, for sure. Half the people in america, or more, do not want anything to do with nuclear.

    The government in washington is a duopoly captured by corporate interests. Many of Donald Trumps, so called staunchest supporters, say they are very concerned about Fukushima. At the same time Donald Trump is bailing out broken down reactors like no one before him. He has no money for domesctc spending but he and the republicans will spend a trillion on nuclear bombs and new nuclear energy boondogles.

    The democrats are no better. Nuclear war-mongers and in bed with nuclear energy shills.

    It will not surprise any people in america who are antinuclear, if the democrats and republicans push through a heavily compromised new green deal, with boondogle nuclear energy subsidies.

    It is a tragedy because, if there is one or more nuclear catastrophies in america, it will probably be apocolyptic. There are 20, 30, and 40 year old, embrittled-reactors that need to be closed.

    There will probably another nuclear catastrophe or more than one soon. Very sad.
    America is a nuclear-authoritarian state where citizens have no say in their future health and safety.
