Think about it….it all started with Enola Gay-on to global nuclear arsenals- it went on with Atoms for Peace-through reactors meltdowns, or (Close to 🙂 )
Now, can reverse the evil we brought to this Planet, and ourselves, the answer is no, not as much as we can leave this place for a clean one (hopefully)

http://www.democracynow.org – On our final day of our special broadcast from Tokyo, we speak with a Japanese resident from the town that housed part of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant who is participating in weekly protests against the resumption of nuclear power in her country. “We couldn’t bring anything from our houses. We didn’t have a toothbrush, we didn’t have a blanket. We didn’t have towels. We had nothing. It was truly hell, and we thought it would be much better to die. But now, we are here, and we can’t really give up. We want to fight for this cause,” Yukiko Kameya said as she attended a demonstration outside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe‘s official residence. “We told the prime minister many times, every week here, that we are against the re-opening of the nuclear facilities, but it doesn’t seem that he gets it. He just does whatever he wants to do anyway.”

It has long been believed that insects are highly resistant to radiation; however, mutated butterflies collected from various locations in Japan following the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident are challenging this idea. A team of researchers collected 144 adult pale grass blue butterflies that would have been larvae at the time of the accident and found an increase in mutations, particularly those of the leg, antenna, and wing. Butterflies collected six months later had an even higher mutation rate, a fact researchers attribute to contaminated food sources and to genetic mutations passed along from the previous generation.

Going back to my previous thought: “For reasoning beings how can it be that humans are so dumbing unreasoning and unreasonable!”

Gemany nuclear Power Decision in Energy Policy
My take on this:
‘It appear that Germany‘s government learned 100% more from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, that Japan‘s: An example of learning from others’ experiences, and acting without prejudice, enlightened, selflessly – that”s Germany of course. It goes on to show that some cannot give up their ways, no matter how destructive, even to themselves. It also shows the power of the citizen in making decisions, where decision making cannot be accomplished. I guess it helps to keep politicians accountable.
It is true that plans are just plans, that may never materialize, but al least the intension to commit to reason, to change, to search for a better, superior, civilized way, are their, for history.©’
