Hello there reader, imagine this if you will.You wake up in the morning to find that your partner has had a bowel movement in the night and soiled the bed, imagine that this is a medical problem and that it happens every night, imagine the clean up every day and imagine the stress involved. Take this situation a step further and lets say that this problem is a genetic one and will be passed down to every one of you children, their children and their children’s children, that would be a catastrophe wouldn’t it. Let’s say now that you have the power to reverse this trend and that you can prevent the genetic mutations from taking place that hang over your family like ‘The Sword of Damocles’, you would change things, wouldn’t you ?
Why then do we then sit back and say nothing when Government’s give the ‘Green Light’ to Energy Companies to build Nuclear Power Plants that have the capacity to inflict death and deformity beyond belief. Am I in the minority or is it just me that is scared shitless by Nuclear Energy, it doesn’t matter how they try to dress it up as ‘Clean Energy’ the fact that they store the Nuclear Waste deep underground in the remotest of places in itself tells you that it is dangerous and unpredictable. Who knows how much radioactive material is leaching out of faulty containers and of what damage it is doing , what is known is that in areas of America where Nuclear Waste has been dumped they have a higher than normal percentage of the population contracting certain cancers.
Then we go on to the game of ‘Russian Roulette’ of not if but the inevitable when will the next accident occur. Look at human errors and design faults that caused the accident at Chernobyl in 1986, thankfully these errors have been rectified but the legacy of those errors will live on for hundreds or even thousands of years. Initially 116,000 people were evacuated over a 30 kilometer exclusion zone, that was later modified to a further 220,000 people from an area covering some 4300 square kilometers being evacuated to less polluted areas, note not clean just less polluted, the cleanup work is still ongoing after 28 years. Then there was the disaster at Fukashima in Japan in 2011 caused by the natural phenomenon of an off shore earthquake, at the time it was worldwide news and people worried on how the problem could be solved. Today the Fukashima plant is currently leaking 300 tons of radioactive water into the surrounding oceans and the reactor cores are still too hot for scientists and authorities to establish how to stabalise the radioactive waste.
When will we ever learn from our mistakes. There are currently 440 Nuclear Energy Stations worldwide, a human error, a natural phenomenon or an act of war will be the reason for the next disaster, how many mistakes have to be made before we realize that we are leaving a terrible toxic legacy for our children and there children’s children to clean up behind us. Let us remove this ‘Sword of Damocles’ that hangs over every family and individual on this planet and tell our leaders that enough is enough and to put an end to the Nuclear Age before it’s to late.
