Remember Chernobyl?

We definitely should.

That's what's most fun about Hanford -- the exciting range fires over there are our own little reminder of Cold War fun.

Sems pretty straight forward to evaluate the problem. Get a geiger counter (s)and test the air. Then panic, not before

Seems like a nice case of lowering the expectations, spoken like a true son of Glenn Seaborg.

Because people having to doubt the very air they breathe is no big deal, right?

We should be concerned. What China and Russsia put into the air ends up over here. The half-life of the isotopes is significant.

Russian officials have denied the existence of the fires

Nice to know nothing has changed over there.

On a related note, we all fear what we don't understand. When all of you are home this evening, avoiding the heat, expand your mind for an hour and check this out. The world would be a better place if every politician and decision maker watched this series.


Actually RW it's what I understand that I fear. This stuff is radioactive and coming our way.
Much like the radioactive drinking water we're getting out of the Columbia South Shore Well Field today. Makes for a great night light.

Oh, I am not trying to detract from any dangers. It's just more helpful when people know what is dangerous and what isn't. That's all I am saying. I hope you are able to watch the professor lecture Ronald.

HEre's a piece he also wrote. This guy isn't any shill, and he isn't paid by anyone. Just a Prius driving Berkeley Physics prof.


The Prius injures his credibility and Berkeley inters it. The "just" a sorry requiem.

Hey that reminds me of this old thing, remember? I wonder if the city is still collecting that tax they imposed way back then. Humm I wonder what they are spending it on.


Photojournalist Paul Fusco went to Ukraine and Belarus to photograph the aftermath of Chernobyl more than ten years after the catastrophe. He intended to stay for two weeks; he ended up staying for two months. He says the experience changed his life. I don’t think anyone who sees his stunning photodocumentary “The Legacy of Chernobyl” will ever be able to forget:
