Ghost town story and pictures
March 12, 2011 9 Comments
The current events in Japan remind me of one of my favorite websites: kiddofspeed.com – Ghost town, a site by a motorcycle woman who took several rides through the chernobyl area in the 2000s and took plenty of pictures there.
I cannot understand how anybody can claim that nuclear energy is safe. It cannot be. Of course, if it is built and maintained correctly, if all personell behaves responsibly, if managers weren’t greedy, and if nothing extraordinary happens (like the quake in Japan) nuclear power could be safe, but we all know how likely it is that one or more of those conditions does not hold.
My thoughts and compassion is with all the people who are affected by the tragedy that happened in Japan.
