The nuclear age offered us so much promise. The problem is we craned our necks away from reality as long as it suited our needs. Nuclear waste? We’ll just let spent rods sit in water and let them cool for a few years (that’s how long it takes), then we can figure out what to do with them. Let’s face it, nobody wants the stuff in their backyard.
Live Takes Millions of Years To Evolve
After the Japanese earthquake and Tsunami, I saw one nuclear lobbyist after the other in the media defending nuclear energy as being safe and dependable for over 40 years. As if 40 years is supposed to be a long time? It took life hundreds of millions of years for life to evolve, and we are expected to believe this? Mother earth has her own plans, and can topple whatever preventions that are put into place. Lets not forget these safe years of Nuclear energy production included Three Mile Island and Chernobyl.
Highly contaminated nuclear waste is pouring into the ocean in Japan, and we are still craning our necks, pretending that the oceans have some kind of invisible division. Well, the truth is, all water is connected. Wherever plumes of this waste pool, and are eaten by multiple levels of the food chain, it will start to effect food supplies globally. Now if you are willing to blindly believe when told that “the levels are not a health risk”, by the very same people who expect us to believe 40 years is a long time, then go right ahead.
Stick around, watch some Nuclear Videos and Discuss
Or, you can stick around here, and discuss the pros and cons of nuclear energy. Some people have been speaking about new safer forms of nuclear energy. Are they really safe? Or are they safe based on one persons calculations? Do the people making these claims truly take all matters into consideration?
