Several readers linked the Youtube video titled "Chernobyl 4 ever" by Belgian director Alain de Halleux, depicting the Chernobyl accident after 25 years. So I thought I would show the video here. I didn't know that they have nuclear fuel to deal with that was used in the other three reactors at Chernobyl until 2000. "History will repeat itself." Well it did.
In stark contrast, here is the video made by the World Nuclear Association for the one-year anniversary of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident, titled "Fukushima and Chernobyl - myth versus reality". "6000 children developed thyroid cancer, and 15 of them died, perhaps." Dr. Gerry Thomas of London's Imperial College says she was anti-nuclear before Chernobyl, but not any more. "Nah. No problem at all." (Just like Monbiot who came to love nuclear after the Fukushima accident.)
If that's the case, why should anyone bother to do anything with the Chernobyl site, not to mention Fukushima?
