There is no peaceful use for nuclear power, or nuclear weapons. Fukushima is surely proof of that.

on closer look, hardly any of the "blessings" of the current globalized Capital-fas-ist system was achieved peacefully

Nuclear power is too dang dangerous!

I read that scientists believe they have evidence that this planet was previously destroyed by nuclear power.
They said they believe that's why mammoths still have vegetation in their bellies.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth AND......there was darkness over the face of the waters.

What the H happened?

Are we going to do it again!

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth"??? - Did he/she create uranium as well? If so, why?

Hope he has an impact. Japan could be a "Nuclear Free Zone". Thermosolar is the way to go!
