chernobylmap.jpgIf you ever doubted that nuclear power was a bad idea, take a look at this photo diary of someone who claimed to bike through the area. (though a lot of poetic licence was clearly used, the pictures are still supposedly real), as presumably are a swedish account. When I was a kid, we had to clean up the mess from one game before being allowed to play another. Maybe the nuclear industry should be asked to clean up the area, and the tailings sites near many mines and then find safe storage for the existing nuclear waste, before we even consider their requests to build more of their dangerous toys. Come to think of it, we could do the same for the gold industry, and other industries where the participants create new companies for each venture, and avoid the responsibility for the mistakes repeatedly made in their industry. - Mitra
