    Re: 25 years on: Chernobyl still leaking radiation

    I watched a Chernobyl documentary a few years ago that was really good. I think the focus was on the wildlife since the disaster but it was neat to see inside some of the houses. People just picked up and left - groceries still on the counter, bedding still on the beds, etc.

    I saw one on the kids that are being born with severe birth defects today in towns that are 25-50 miles away. Super sad and depressing stuff. Either way leaks and spills like this and the one in Japan WILL affect the future of the planet we live on.

    It is very tragic to say the least. I guess it's the price we play for efficient, clean energy. Every 8 years another nuclear tragedy.
