Chernobyl Today: Contaminated Forever

A US journalist visiting Chernobyl today. A film from PBS TV.

Fukushima is probably Chernobyl in slow motion. Fukushima has ten times the amount of nuclear fuel that Chernobyl had. Unlike Chernobyl, Fukushima used a plutonium-based (MOX) fuel in reactor 3 and stored used fuel rods, containing much more radioactvity, on site. Barring some unlikely miracle, the Fukushima region will join Chernobyl and other nuclear sites as being ruined for healthy living organisms forever. It is obvious that nuclear power and weapons must be banished from the face of the earth for the sake of our children, grandchildren and all future generations.
