Abode of Chaos

Today marks the Third Anniversary of one of the most devastating Global disasters this beleaguered planet has ever seen, the meltdown at Fukushima.
As protests, prayers and marches around the world, remember this, one of the darkest days in the history of humanity, others wonder how, why and when the next one may come.
And trust me, if nothing changes, it will come.
What did we learn from Fukushima?
Has Japan changed a single Nuclear Energy policy?
Have any of the countries now using Nuclear Energy?
Has California or any other State/Country stopped building Nuclear Reactors near Earthquake Zones?
The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station sits very near them and LA would take a direct hit.
When something as lethal as Nuclear Power is not given the fullest measure of respect, horrific things can and do happen.
We have become complacent and have failed to acknowledge that we cannot always control our mistakes and that they may in the end, end us all.
Many residents of my beloved state of California, are now watching as the Nuclear puke from Japan continues to wash ashore all along the beautiful coastlines.
Is anyone concerned at all about the millions of sea animals that are either now dead or are dying from the poisons that now have had three years to wreak havoc on living sea life?
Or the very sea itself?
Would you eat anything, if you are not a vegetarian, that comes from the Pacific Ocean?
But most importantly, what of the millions living in Japan who have paid or are paying the ultimate price for this disaster?
They have had to deal with not only the physical effects, but also the mental anguish and neither will soon go away.
It was/is in their face and they have nowhere to go to escape it.
I admit that since its inception, I have had no liking for anything Nuclear.
My question since it began, was always, why on Earth would we want to create anything that we have to pay someone to bury and that can easily wipe us all off the face of the Earth?
Most states now want nothing to do with spent fuel rods.
With all of the obvious alternatives, that will not kill us all and all living creatures, why do we as species still refuse to totally embrace Green Energy, instead of this lethal one?
I believe it can only be one thing, money.
There is no huge profit in Renewable Energy.
This is quite sad, as it has been proven on every continent that Wind, Solar and other Green Energy options work and work quite nicely for those who choose it over Nuclear Energy.
It was abominable that following this event, there were countless attempts to cover up and hide truths that eventually, as they always do, came out about who did what, when and why.
These did nothing but slow the recovery and contribute to the failure of the Planet to learn and change from this horrific occurrence.
For months, even years now, there are still those who say, no-no nuclear power is safe, Fukushima was just a “freak accident.”
They apparently have forgotten the previous “freak accidents” in so many other places, like “Three-Mile Island” and “Chernobyl.”
Our world has been continuously bombarded for decades, with enough radiation to permeate every cell, of every living thing on it.
And belive this, when cells no longer function properly, we are in trouble.
Think of all the living things that could be affected and the Mutations that would follow.
Too many children and young adults are dying today of cancers that did not exist before Nuclear Power.
Animals, plants, all over the Earth are all affected, but they don’t usually make the news, because they don’t speak our language, but you must understand, that they are all hurting too.
The decades of countless anomalies in human and animal births are not ” freak accidents.”
Nuclear Power running amuck Globally, is responsible and until and unless, the highest powers on this Planet accept, acknowledge and change our attitude towards this extremely dangerous form of Energy, we are in trouble.
I am looking at CNN as I write this and they are showing an “overnighter” of Senate Democrats talking endlessly about “Climate Change.”
Well, you can forget “Climate Change”, if we don’t begin a new way thinking about Nuclear Power and soon, we won’t need to worry about having a Planet, or a Climate on it.
