I'm sure you are all aware of the recent disaster...make that, fuck up! that has been caused by the Fukushima power plant here in Japan. Due to nuclear power and it's radiation leaks, the environment around Fukushima has been devastated. The farming is now non existent with crops rendered useless. The ocean is polluted along with the fish and people have had to leave their homes for many miles around. The problem isn't getting any better either as this crap spreading globally through our air and sea. The Govertment have continually lied and mishandled the whole operation. The impact this will have on us all is... unimaginable.
After having first hand knowledge of how this is effecting us all here in Tokyo - which is still hundred of kilometres away - I am convinced that nuclear power is not a safe and reliable form of energy for our planet. Simply put, it is unsustainable. With much care needed for a period of over 100,000 years to be rid of nuclear waste, ourselves only being on the planet a mere 55,000 years there is no argument that such distructive and dangerous waste can be handled safely for such an incredible amount of time. And with only one planet, is putting this waste in the ground really an answer? The number of plants on our planet is alarming. it's growing and it's simply all to do with Govertment greed and money.
With that in mind there is a global protest being held this Sunday in various cities around the world. I myself am going to the Tokyo protest to lend support. I urge you to take a look at the site linked and if you agree and are able to attend one of those demos then please do.
No to nuclear energy. Invest in alternative resources!!!
