I can never fully understand why some people somewhere could still insist on nuclear energy. The link above tells us part of the aftermath of its radioactive contamination in Fukushima. Honestly, the people who insist on nuclear should really go to Fukushima themselves and clean up the contamination instead of talking about why and how else it should be managed to ensure safety for future generations to come. The reality is: unless one knows how to contain nuclear energy risks, no one under our current socio-political-economic situation should ever use nuclear energy as a prime source of energy production. The nuclear fallout should be used as a warning on how justice should be done on any other source of energy used in a similar large scale as a precautionary measure. Any tool given in the wrong hands can be a weapon. And nuclear is by far the worst tool to use. Why tempt it? Just dump it. – Karen Fu

Far worse than what I thought about the fukushima radioactive leak. So cancer prevention should be the first to come into consideration if what Dr Helen Caldicott said is true.I can believe it is mostly true. But what I didn’t know was the extent of the disaster. We should never place complacency in what we know and play with fire. I will leave you to watch the video. It is very concisely presented. Anyone who still thinks nuclear is a viable source of power to expand economically should have their brains ‘washed’ by now. Technology should gear towards to how to cancer prevention and cure. I think that’s the most important task now — not the power struggle, fights and material greed. It doesn’t pay. — Karen Fu
