Key words: nuclear damage, forests on the same area
On the 25th year of the Chernobyl catastrophe the damage is still increasing. And Fukushima has been rated another Chernobyl. 20 km radius around Fukushima has been declared uninhabitable for humans.
In Belarus the whole of her area of 211000 km^2 is contaminated heavily. There is infinitely disproportionate damage caused compared to the utility of electricity generated from nuclear power plants which is not available to the public at large and is consumed entirely by the nuclear industry. A completely objective perspective shows that we must forgo the nuclear option now and shut down quickly the existing nukes. Nuclear electricity is just not worth the infinite price it extracts from life for all time for no benefit to society outside the nuke business.And this is true even when they operate so-called normally. Even during normal operations the 350 to 440 nuclear reactor stations around the world are causing 200000 cancer deaths every year. This follows from Gofman’s work in the seventies eighties and nineties of the last century.
Consider the alternative of forests on the lands rendered desolate by the nuclear industry: Consider Belarus: If on 211000 km^2 which is her area sufficient density of forests are grown, under practical considerations of ecology with reasonable diversity of species the power flow through it is 211000 gigawatts. Compare it to the poverty of 4 GW of Chernobyl power which would be used in the end really only to the extent of a few percent through final delivered goods and services. The multi input(sun, rain, soil, groundwater,wind) multi output forest would automatically non-clonally reproduce and last for ever! And people would be the beneficiaries in cooperatives managed to nurture in health the people and all other life around! What is it now- Belarus- a desolate uninhabitable unhealthy illness breeder for all time.
Fukushima: Similarly the agricultural land and the forests around have been rendered a deadly radiation zone for all time. The 20 km radius means as an alternative at least 1200 GW power flow, which would have been a thriving cooperatives operated gross nature produce full of life, happiness, songs and work for all time!
