#1 Yeah, we've got a few two-headed mice, but the three-headed cats are really good at catching them.

#2 This is an interesting read and surprisingly (cos its sensible) from the UN.

#3 The global scientific community, and well-informed elites of all kinds, are preparing to switch sides on nuclear power, and they must prepare the ground first.
This is partially in response to Kyoto and the media-driven but irreversible acceptance of anthropogenic global warming, but it is also a response to the continuing global crises over the distribution of fossil fuels.
Expect certain other vested interests, like the environmental activism industry and the pop-culture complex, to continue and even increase their opposition, but the die is cast.
There will be a resurgence of nuclear power.

#4 Nuclear energy is the key to the conquest of space as well. See link.

#5 Chernobyl is a great laboratory in several ways.

First of all, only limited types of isotopes were released, which means that their signature effect on lifeforms can now be examined in the macro scale and distinguised from the effects of other isotopes. There was also a minimum of toxic chemical contamination that could have produced similar effects and damage.

Second thing, it gives great examples both of 1st generation adaptation to radiation and these isotopes, and subsequent generational adaptation. So far, it is far faster and better than previously believed.

All sorts of morbidity and mortality information in humans will have to be strongly adjusted, mostly downwards. And follow-ups to prophalaxis and decontamination procedures, to see if they were effective or not, will have application in the future.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
