Remembering Chernobyl.

I wonder how many of you remember Chernobyl and the fact that it happened 30 years ago today. It is still a threat to mankind even today should people forget to deal with it.

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

I feel sorry for the poor squaddies lied to , given leather gloves , aprons and shovels and then let loose on the pile debris.

They carried out a completely ineffectual operation that spread the muck around and made matters much worse.

Then died in isolation , a slow agonising death.

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

Chernobyl is well remembered in this neck of the woods and my heart goes out to the poor cleanup team. At least the workers at Fukushima volunteered for service knowing what awaited them. Contrary to the above article it could take up to 3,000 years before radiation has decayed to acceptable levels for human habitation.



But the nuclear power station near us in Zaporozhzhye is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe & the fifth largest in the world and could make Chernobyl look like a walk in the park

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

We have volunteered to look after a little boy from Chernobyl this year as we are home for a month when the project is in place even though it's 30 years since the disaster children are still breathing in contamination and eating food that is contaminated with radiation I don't want any likes or all that stuff just happy to extend somebody's life by 2 years just by them having clean food and air to breath !

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

Chernobyl’s disastrous cover-up is a warning for the next nuclear age

In 1986, the Soviet minister of hydrometeorology, Yuri Izrael, had a regrettable decision to make. It was his job to track radioactivity blowing from the smoking Chernobyl reactor in the hours after the 26 April explosion and deal with it. Forty-eight hours after the accident, an assistant handed him a roughly drawn map. On it, an arrow shot north-east from the nuclear power plant, and broadened to become a river of air 10 miles wide that was surging across Belarus toward Russia. If the slow-moving mass of radioactive clouds reached Moscow, where a spring storm front was piling up, millions could be harmed. Izrael’s decision was easy. Make it rain…

A long but scary read.

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

I remember it well. And it's no surprise that we have so many cancers and so many more people suffering. Even animals are having cancers that were once unheard of. I personally think that alzheimers has a link to it via the food we eat or ate after the fall out. Chernobyl really had a perfect cover up because our younger people (I base this on the young people I know) wouldn't know anything about Chernobyl at all. The suffering that some have gone through due to the fall out is nothing short of a massacre only they are not dead. The people who's children are damaged the mothers and fathers who are damaged either by cancer or other related illness and as stated on that link it effected Cumbria thru Scotland and countless other areas. But of course they are never going to let everybody know the areas that are still contaminated. A HORROR story of the highest order.

The incidences of leukemia in SW Scotland far preceded Chernobyl, IMHO the radiation simply came across the sea from Calder Vale (change the name every time there is a serious leak) latest Windscale?

Re: Remembering Chernobyl.

Caution: Disturbing photos

What We Know About the Chernobyl Animal Mutations…

“The 1986 Chernobyl accident resulted in one of the highest unintentional releases of radioactivity in history. The graphite moderator of reactor 4 was exposed to air and ignited, shooting plumes of radioactive fallout across what is now Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, and Europe. While few people live near Chernobyl now, animals living in the vicinity of the accident allow us to study the effects of radiation and gauge recovery from the disaster...
