Title: Chernobyl tragedy: the last “gift” from the Soviet regime
Source: Voice of Russia
Author: Dmitry Konchalovsky
Date: Apr 26, 2012

Exactly 26 years ago there was an explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Whole regions in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus have become unfit for life, and the number of victims has reached one million people today. And experts are still disputing about long-term consequences of the disaster.

[…] its consequences are endless and uncontrollable, and it is impossible to count the exact number of victims. Scientists are still arguing if the number of one million deaths is valid, but when such big numbers are taken into account, the one thing is absolutely clear – things are in a bad way. Besides, no one can count how many babies could not be born, and on the lives of how many subsequent generations this disaster will tell in the form of cancer.

    "consequences are endless and uncontrollable" . . this is why we must decommission nuclear plants worldwide. This has to happen now.

  • Just look at the dozen or more post I made yesterday of the children still being born with deformities and metal problems and is increasing not subsiding !

    Dr. Fox. I must ask if I may….. is your first name Channing?

    As a youth in Fl. where I believe you reside my Dr.'s name was Dr. Fox.

    Just proves how ignorant mankind really is, screwing with things they do not comprehend or are able to control, insanity runs in the family, they better figure it out in a hurry or we are doomed.

      I don't think that man has failed to control nuclear material. They have failed to see there is no way of controling it.

    And then 'teach' us that like ceasium 137 has a half life of 30 years as in it is gone by then and (of course) that's not true and i want to point it out ones more.

    After a half life 50% will remain AND the other 50% will decay into another (radioactive) isotope with its know half life. After the first half life when 50% is gone another half life will take 50% of the 50% which is 25%. So after 60 years (second half life of ceasium-137) 25% of the total ceasium 137 is still there. The other 50% has decayed into Ba-137 isotope which will decay to practically zero activity within 15 min. BUT that 50% is gone after a half life is only assumed and could be more or less. For Ceasium 137 it will decay into Ba-137 which is gone fast, but for example Pu-238 will decay into Uranium-234 and this is still a dangerous isotope.

    Right Lacsap,…there's no, 'waiting this one out'!

    We do not have the technology to handle cesium, a made made poison. And we do not have the time. 30 years, add a few zeros. My NPP friends say that the increased radiation in the rain is simply the effects of rain falling through radioactive air, made radioactive by the sun of course, definitely not NPP leaks. Duh. Dullards.

    Oh how they have their heads up their butt.

    How could people allow them to keep using this form of energy? I mean the payout for the people with cancer and to take care of the children for the next 500 years will be unreal. If that stuff gets into the ground water kiss Europe goodbye. Japan has probably done 100 billion dollars in damage to the Pacific ocean. What is the cost if Japan is lost? I mean a country ruined. Nw way to take 12" of top soil in a 50 mile radius it would take tens of millions of dump trukcs and then to load and unload. It would be cheaper to just say goodbye t o Japan and they will be doing just that very soon.

    If someone wants to destroy the USA all they have to do is get a job at four nuke plants and then kill the power and aleady have the generators destroyed. No way and meltdown and no way to stop it. Tne America is done. 100 million people displaced. That would be easy to do. In fact one bomb dropped on a nuke plant and kiss it goodbye.

    If CHernobyl had failed a month later and the wind wouldhave been blowing Southern and Kiev would have been evacutated and it probably should have anyway. NOw Belarus will be devastated. When will the poor rise up and just destroy these plants? This is what we get when the rich rule the earth.
