Dangers of a Lax Nuclear Strategy


  • Dangers of a Lax Nuclear Strategy

    On August 26, Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan resigned, taking responsibility for the disastrous meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, which was caused by the March 2011 undersea earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

    In India, on the other hand, the deliberate contamination of a drinking water tank with radioactive waste in the Kaiga nuclear power plant in Western Ghats in the state of Karnataka has gone unpunished for two whole years.

    Neither government nor corporate actors have yet taken responsibility for the incident.

    The contamination of a drinking water cooler near the clothing crib of the power plant led to 86 employees showing higher than normal traces of tritium, a radioactive substance, in their routine urine discharge test on the night of Nov. 23, 2009.

    Before i started following these nuclear events more closely i didn't realize that India is governed by such fools and criminals. Police shooting peaceful anti-nuclear protesters, workers dumping radioactive waste in drinking water tanks and no one ever gets even investigated? And now they sign a document that gives nukes 5 year warranty?

    Antinuclear protestors in India are indeed fighting for their country and their lives.
