There is no place on earth that is not a fallout zone at one time or another. So we are going to get beamed up AGAIN in the western hemisphere with a few more rads, so pass the Sea & Ski. This is not the first time we basked in the glow of the nuclear age. We worry about irradiated milk when our bodies have a half-life of 20 million years from all the exposure we already endured. I know I glow in the dark for a variety of reasons and so what if I ingest a few more alpha and beta particles. What the heck, that only gives me a perpetual sore throat and lesions in my esophagus, so far. I’ll just gargle with Listerine provided my alcoholic cousin didn’t drink it all. But if my skin falls off I may have an issue. I hate that.
With all the concern for radioactive contamination in Japan, people face an even greater killer. The snow is falling in Japan bringing with it the associated freezing winter conditions. Logistical concerns and transportation issues due to the catastrophe have already made it all but impossible to distribute aid in earnest to many isolated locations. These people must fend for themselves in the harshest of conditions and it’s the elderly, the infirmed and the young who will perish from something as simple as exposure. People yet to be discovered in the ruins face an even bleaker fate as snow muffles their cries for help while hypothermia sets in. Mercifully, death will quell the pangs of their suffering and liberate them from the clutches of this hateful greedy world.
If the truth were known we have already been nuked by the unfiltered rays of the sun with the absence of the magnetosphere on more than one occasion. Ah yes the melanoma mambo and to add to the mix we also had a smattering of solar flares to add to the joy of our gamma and x-ray exposure extravaganza . Alpha and Beta radiation has already become a staple in most diets around the world and might as well be listed as an ingredient since it has become so prevalent in our food chain. Chernobyl radically increased the ambient radiation in our environment and seasoned our world with plenty of radioactive contamination in the process. What used to be unacceptable levels of radiation before the explosion is acceptable now since there is nothing man can do to lower the level. Sadly nuclear alchemists in Japan have increased the level of acceptable radiation nuclear workers can be exposed to at the reactor site. Like that’s going to change the fact they are on a suicide mission.
The people manning hoses at the reactor should be the speculators, investors and politicians who’ve invested in nuclear energy futures, not these brave workers and first responders. The families of these brave souls are destined to be in litigation for years fighting for benefits and compensation for their sick or deceased loved ones.
Ask the Navajo about radioactive contamination and the uranium mining fiasco and they will tell you a horrific tale of death, disease and birth defects. They will also tell you a story of betrayal, deception and cover-ups by the good folks of the Atomic Energy Commission. Another casualty of the Cold War was Southern Washington State at Hanford Nuclear Reserve. The indigenous populations had to bare the brunt of mans inability to contain radiation while contaminating the Columbia River, water tables and contaminating the land. The Columbia River was forever altered from years of radioactive contamination that nuclear scientists deemed were at acceptable levels. There are many more tales of death and disease from nuclear facilities and the mining of uranium in the United States such as Three Mile Island. So when these wind bag nuclear physicists poke jabs at Japan and its disaster they have no room to squawk and snivel, or maybe they simply forgot about our nuclear disasters. Just remember who signs their paychecks because as we all should know by now, science and scientists can be bought and groomed to fit any geopolitical agenda. We live in a world where rhetoric and political correctness are the norm. In the old days we simply called it lying.
The big picture is the fact we are living in a post nuclear war environment and every nuclear event we encounter on this planet increases the ambient level of radiation we live in. It does not go away like some of the alchemists, turned nuclear scientists, are trying to say. You really can’t blame them for feeding us bull dung since their whole lives revolve around the governments nuclear ambitions and funding so you better believe they will do and say anything that will preserve their jobs. We already glow in the dark boys and girls so get over it. We are running around buying up all the iodine pills we can find and preparing ourselves for a nuclear disaster when it already came. We should have taken iodine tablets during the Chernobyl meltdown. Oh well, hind site is 20/20 but it just goes to show you how callous government and nuclear officials are in America and Japan. Good thing we are living in the time of great change. That reminds me, I had better head down to the 7-11 and pick up some smokes, Pepsi’s and a textured soy protein burrito. And while I’m at it I’ll pick up a few bottles of potassium iodine pills, just in case.
