The recent unspeakable disasters in Japan deserve as much attention as possible. Our Japanese sisters and brothers need our help. But some news organizations and sites (especially the ones that like to make news into gossip and Drudgery) have taken the disaster and used it for their own ratings-improving/anti-scientific/anti-nuke hysteria agenda. George Monbiot of the Guardian has offered some perspective. I recommend you read his article:
Here is an except:
“Atomic energy has just been subjected to one of the harshest of possible tests, and the impact on people and the planet has been small. The crisis at Fukushima has converted me to the cause of nuclear power.”
Please spread this article all around….don’t let hysteria rule the day….
If the human race doesn’t go all-out Nuclear as soon as possible, we are going to be in the dark for a long time…The disaster in Japan is beyond bad enough. We don’t need an even bigger disaster (setbacks to the nuclear Renaissance)….such a setback would cost billions of potential lives over the next century. Think Big.
Update: This podcast episode eplains the Fukushima situation as the experts see it. This is must listen material for anyone who wants to see through the panic with a scientific eye: Listen Here.
