Fukushima….what’s all the fuss about?
Over the past several months the ‘Fukushima’ debate as I call it has resurfaced and has apparently concerned a few folks. I mean hey, for so long it was just out of sight out of mind. We kept telling people that radioactivity just doesn’t go away in as many ways as we could and people not only got tired of our pleas for some awareness, a few actually complained about our persistent emails to the point that we figured the majority of people just didn’t get what all the ‘fuss’ was about. Out of sight out of mind!
We folks, this issue just isn’t going to go away, not in our lifetimes nor our children’s. Sad but true. I suspect that we will continue to see new levels of ‘background’ radiation being adopted over time and no one will notice…at least not many. Not nearly enough to make a difference.
Once again money will rule the roost…the game seems to be all about ‘saving’ the nuclear power industry. Clean energy-oil free energy-and all that nonsense. Remember these industry guys and their politicians have a ton of money and time. They can wait the storm out and while waiting manipulate enough press and scientific boards to say and do just what they want. All the while the peasants just eat their garbage and continue on with their existence. Not having enough time, energy or money to really make a united stand against this travesty of energy systems.
Pay attention, this campaign has already begun. There are a few outcries, especially from the Japanese people wanting criminal charges and such. I suspect there will be a few symbolic heads roll, enough to appease the crowds while having many esteemed scientists saying how safe nukes are etc and eventually, after many august panels touting the efficiency and safety of nuclear power, lo and behold we will have a rash of new nukes and old ones restarting…mark my words. Sad but true.
Meanwhile take a look at this you tube that came from St Louis, I love it that someone is doing their own research!
The real question becomes, how do we survive this mess? Has anyone given any thought to that?
