 The anti-nuclear lobby has misled us all
The anti-nuclear lobby has misled us all
For the last 25 years anti-nuclear campaigners have been racking up the figures for deaths and diseases caused by the Chernobyl disaster, and parading deformed babies like a medieval circus. They now claim 985,000 people have been killed by Chernobyl, and that it will continue to slaughter people for generations to come. These claims are false. picked by plurk 6 months ago

Three Mile Island cited for "moderate to severe" security problems

 Radioactive Boars Rampaging Through Germany
Radioactive Boars Rampaging Through Germany
It sounds like the plot of a B-movie, yet it’s bizarrely true: Radioactive boars are on the loose and thriving in Germany’s forests. A succession of mild winters has left Germany scrambling to deal with a skyrocketing wild boar population.

 Kidd of Speed - Elena's Pictorial Motorcyle Ride through Chernobyl
Kidd of Speed - Elena's Pictorial Motorcyle Ride through Chernobyl
On April 26, 1986 at 1:23 AM, reactor crew at Chernobyl-4 moved to shut down the reactor in its low power mode and a domino effect of previous errors caused a sharp power surge, triggering a tremendous steam explosion which blew the 1000 ton cap on the nuclear containment vessel to smithereens.

Elena gives us an unprecedented first person view of the place now. picked by Moe 3 years ago

Chernobyl Cleanup Survivor's Message for Japan: 'Run Away as Quickly as Possible'
Manzurova, now 59 and an advocate for radiation victims worldwide, has the "Chernobyl necklace" -- a scar on her throat from the removal of her thyroid -- and myriad health problems. But unlike the rest of her team members, who she said have all died from the results of radiation poisoning, and many other liquidators, she's alive. picked by zircon77777 7 months ago

Whales Might Be as Much Like People as Apes Are
As the annual International Whaling Commission meeting stumbles to a close, unable to negotiate a compromise between whaling opponents and people who’ve killed more than 40,000 whales since 1985, scientists say these aquatic mammals are more than mere animals. They might even deserve to be considered people. picked by AutumnLotus 2 years ago
