yeah actually today also there should be 3 or 4 reactors still running in Ukraine.. in Chernobyl other 3 reactors were working even after the disaster after some time they were shut down but initial idea seems deploying 6-8 reactors in that area.. there even unfinished constructions from that time around the area..

She went to all those places, and had to wear protective equipment for some high radiation zones. But the saddest thing is how the land is so contaminated still all these years later, which has caused high numbers of birth defects and disease.

Itís a very moving and eye opening documentary. Hereís a qwik trailer...
thank you.. and yes i watched it before but i can watch again though cheers..

Just watched a video last night of this, where scientists went back in to see what the affects have been so far. Their findings were fascinating as mother nature has been slowly adapting and cleaning herself up, and things like horses, and the fish in the water and such have been modifying their DNA to survive.

Fukashima is terrifying as I have a feeling with what's been leeching into the ocean, that we are still just scratching the surface of this one.

This, as well as Base Camp on Mt. Everest are both on my bucket list to visit.

As bad as Chernobyl and Fukushima are, it is going to pale in comparison as to what man made climate change is going to do.

Plus how about the totality of events like WW2? As a whole that devastated the environment and the people in them far worse than these incidents. At least yet.
