Fukushima,  the radiation gift that keeps on giving.  I had stopped following this for some time.  Stupidity, greed for money, lack of acceptance of responsibility for accidents and bureaucrats in governments who fail to report the truth bear partial responsibility for this accident.  Failing to properly plan where to place reactors and not keeping up with keeping them safe all have contributed.

My grandson recently completed his Masters Degree in Nuclear Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley.   Some recent discussions we had was regarding was partly about safety and the lack of correct oversight and the use of boiling water reactors.  His goal is to make obtaining energy  much safer with fusion reactors.

Radiation:  the death that has become the destroyer has good uses but has become the destroyer because of the above mentioned reasons along with some that have not been mentioned.

I had gotten away from Fukushima (the subject of a previous project) and jumped into the security of cities and towns and nations.  One of those items would be radiation from dirty bombs, small suitcase type nukes, smuggled nukes in seagoing containers and the lack of time, money, resources, slowdown of products being imported trying to check these incoming seagoing containers.  Not only are aging reactors a problem but trying to intercept smuggled nuclear material is a very large problem.  In my field of railroad security I see these containers all the time and I am appalled at the ease at which these things could have something harmful in them and they may not even be checked.  These containers are hauled by boat, trucked to a rail yard, picked up by a truck and hauled to a destination.  Inside could be a small nuke, dirty bomb, etc...  Radiation: the destroyer could be sent all over any country without anyone ever knowing.  So we have Nuclear waste dumps, aging reactors, reactors placed geographically in volatile areas, lack of proper safety oversight, smuggled radiation devices or dirty bombs.  Will this be our destruction in the end?  Sorry, I may have seemed to ramble but I think there are several concerns about radiation that need to be considered.  It can be a good thing and yet not handled properly could be our demise.  I have been in armed security now for 2 years positioned at a rail yard and you would be appalled at the lack of real good security practices at several points during the transport of seagoing containers.

The only beings that could fix this in an instant are the benign ETs, jmho.
I know that I know nothing - thanks Capricorn.
