The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Nuclear waste host communities exploited – by blackmail, ”noble sacrifice” and greed

Governments prefer a distant disadvantaged, impoverished, preferably indigenous community to host nuclear wastes. Governments then promise the health, education etc services that they should be providing anyway.

Then there’s the noble goal of ”sarifice” – providing a benefit to the nation.

Then there’s greed, as selected local dignitaries and businesses get attractive bribes to promote the dump plan to the community.

Eventually, the community becomes dependent on the nuclear industry, – which happens also in other situations, such as in nuclear energy and nuclear weapons plants.
