Stars of the world today are scientists, corporate leaders and people who promote and utilize and harness green energy in place of fossil fuels addiction and the mirage that nuclear energy is actually smart.
CHERNOBYL, Ukraine — Twelve times a month — the maximum number of shifts the doctors will allow — Sergei A. Krasikov takes a train across the no man’s land and reports for work at a structure enclosing Reactor No. 4 known as “the sarcophagus.”
Among his tasks is to pump out radioactive liquid that has collected inside the burned-out reactor. This happens whenever it rains. The sarcophagus was built 25 years ago in a panic, as radiation streamed into populated areas after an explosion at the reactor, and now it is riddled with cracks.
Water cannot be allowed to touch the thing that is deep inside the reactor: about 200 tons of melted nuclear fuel and debris, which burned through the floor and hardened, in one spot, into the shape of an elephant’s foot. This mass remains so highly radioactive that scientists cannot approach it.”
The New York Times, Ellen Barry brings this story today brings this story on the man responsible for tending the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl that’s still dangerous years after the fact.
Clearly, if scientists can whiz together nuclear reactors and yet not have the antidote cure to fix their damage – aren’t they like an untested experiment, too volatile to have backed in the first place as okay? Or am I over-reacting on this issue? 300 years!
