Andy Jackson BS: Japan Nuclear plant disaster, 2011 (1865* d) RE: BS: Nuclear plant disaster looming 08 Apr 11


Believe me I am scared, very scared. Nuclear stuff is nasty. All I originally objected to was depicting, as fact, the explosion as a "nuclear " explosion with mushroom clouds and all the trappings of a bomb, when it quite obviously wasn't. That for my money is scaremongering.
No need for more on that then!
I hope lessons will continue to be learned from this disaster. I believe the world needs nuclear power; there is at the moment no viable alternative. BUT we must learn how to handle it safely. Don't build reactors in unstable tectonic plate regions. Build them in remote regions with enforced exclusion zones and buy big fat cables to distribute the power to where it is needed. Too simplistic I now but if we think one world it becomes possible. Radiation clouds know no boundaries.
Meanwhile I will leave the debate about the long term effects of radiation and monitoring and hypothesis to brains much greater than mine, as illustrated on this forum. I will spend my time trying to do something for the survivors struggling to come to terms with their own personal tragedy.
