The nuclear reactor catastrophes at Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and now at Fukushima, Japan, remind us that a heinous specter hovers over the health and security of millions of people worldwide. Not only does the threat of nuclear weapons proliferation remain but every nuclear station sits as a ticking bomb awaiting meltdown and terrorist attack. Many Russian studies conclude that the Chernobyl disaster has been responsible for the deaths of approximately a million people since the 1986 meltdown. And the cost of the Daiichi Fukushima crisis may be higher. From the mining of radioactive materials to their transportation, from reactor fusion to the storage of radioactive waste, the energy cartel is contaminating natural habitats, rivers and aquifers while endangering millions of lives.
