...The Pugwash Conferences were started by scientists in Canada in 1957 to discuss ways to abolish nuclear weapons. Since the 2011 Fukushima accident, participants in the international event have also discussed the dangers of the nonmilitary use of nuclear energy....
....But Ramamurti Rajaraman, an Indian physicist, argued for the promotion of nuclear energy. He said that its risks have to be compared with those of not possessing electricity.
An audience member also said that the energy source is necessary. “Atomic energy is helpful for (economic) growth of developing countries. Although there were accidents in Chernobyl, Three Mile (Island) and Fukushima, we must not get emotional,” the individual said.
Majia here: The audience member said, “we must not get emotional” in reaction to nuclear accidents, even when nuclear operators (e.g., TEPCO) are unable to locate the genotoxic reactor fuel using state-of-the-art technology, including muon scans.
We must not get emotional although thyroid cancer rates are inexplicably spiking among Fukushima’s children just as they did after Chenobyl.
We must not get emotional although the US and Japan, among other nations, have aging nuclear reactors located on active earthquake faults.
We must not get emotional. We must remain psychopathically detached from the trauma we wreck upon the earth and its inhabitants.
I must not think bad thoughts... I must not think bad thoughts... I must not think bad thoughts...
