Duck and Cover. Well, that pretty much sums up the reality of the Nuclear Energy Industry, whether we’re talking about uranium mines, the transportation of nuclear waste or the horrifying risks that co-sponsor Nuclear reactors.
We’re always told the same thing: there’s nothing to worry about. In the case of uranium mines, one only needs to look at a place called Jadugoda to see just how absurd that is. In the case of Nuclear Reactors, Chernobyl.
And yet, the industrial complex continues to push on as if they’re dealing with little more than kool-aid. Thankfully, we’re not so willing to simply duck and cover, like desperate, irrational, money-hungry lunatics.
