For those of you who have any doubt about the effects of radiation, and/or who think Ann Coulter is some kind of genius, take a few minutes
from your busy lives to watch the photo essay linked below.
It's the minimum you can do if you truly want to know the truth about disasters like Chernobyl. It's not a pleasant experience watching this, but
the truth is sometimes not so pretty.
In the years to come, when children in Japan (and potentially elsewhere) contract leukemia, some of you are going to get your wake-up call big-time.
Yes, they may. Probably not near the #'s you probably predict, but there will be fallout. It won't be nearly as bad as many here think (or sadly,
hope) it may be, but there will be fallout. It's a nuclear reactor. If it goes wrong, this happens.
And whose fault is it? Oh yes.. the evil governments or evil power companies faults. Even though, our towns and cities would not exist without this
power. Do you think for a moment France would choose instead, to live a fraction of how well they are now, what-with their country being over 70%
nuclear power? No.. people want luxuries. They want power. They want convenience. And it's all well and good until something goes wrong, and then
it's amazing how fast they cry foul, and want someone's head.
I think there should be greater accountability with nuclear power - there should be no wiggle room. But honestly.. it was a 9.0 earthquake and a huge
tsunami. It was a freak of nature, a rare occurred. And people are acting as if it were planned, and that people should be punished.
Humanity is such a dredge.. I hope some day people get enlightened. The amount of two-faced hypocrisy amongst many populations make me sick. Is this
bad? Sure. Is it catastrophic? No. And not NEARLY as bad as people here say it is.
Or much worse.. that they HOPE it is. Try to tell me with a straight face that a large % of people here (and in fact, across the world), hope this
resolves without an issue. People here hope for a tragedy. They live for a disaster. The worse, the better. Many people here make me sick.
