Sometimes it seems that governments are trying to see who can destroy civilization first.
Is that the way we define the most advanced nations these daze?
A book was just published that points out one way to have "bling energy" glowing in the dark (along with anything else that gets too close):
Nearly one million people around the world died from exposure to radiation released by the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl reactor, finds a new book from the New York Academy of Sciences published today on the 24th anniversary of the meltdown at the Soviet facility.(Chernobyl, emphasis added). Yet the U.S. government is granting more permits than ever to build more of these deadly engines just so things can glow in the dark.
The book, "Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment," was compiled by authors Alexey Yablokov of the Center for Russian Environmental Policy in Moscow, and Vassily Nesterenko and Alexey Nesterenko of the Institute of Radiation Safety, in Minsk, Belarus.
The U.S. government has also decided to grant more permits than ever to drill baby drill off the coasts, even while one of the most advanced drilling rigs exploded to glow in the dark, then sank along with the myth of their ability to drill without any problems.
President Obama went for the flashy gadgets MOMCOM was wearing and selling, and agreed to do some dancing in the moonlight with MOMCOM.
What is next, Mr. President, triage for the masses?
UPDATE: Photos taken from space by NASA show that the oil spill is into the dead zone already.
The dead zone is a lifeless area of the Gulf of Mexico just off the Mississippi River Delta.
It is caused by fertilizers made from petroleum being placed on crops at farms along the rivers that flow into the mighty Mississippi.
The runoff water is contaminated with those fertilizers so when it reaches the Gulf of Mexico, it kills everything in the water and on the bottom.
