      I propose... that if the majority of a group of people that are indoctrinated into an education system by others choice and dictation, and the majority of said group can't understand the dangers of human activities, say by the age of 23, then those human activities shouldn't be practiced. Clean... water, food, clothing, and shelter must be provided to everyone and nobody should be getting rich off anything!

    That graph could have been explained. Unless it’s just there to convince someone of your agenda. It’d be cool though to hear from actual scientists doing the study OR call them

    I have a liquidator medal that I got almost 2 decades ago. Its still one of my absolute favorite pieces of nuclear- particularly Chernobyl- history that I've gotten my hands on. Piece to all.

    Only people who died were first responders and some plant personnel. Much to the chagrin of the doomsayers. Also, wildlife, much of which had been cut by hunting illegal or otherwise is doing very well in the region now.

    It's interesting to hear that you still consider Chernobyl to be the world's worst nuclear accident. One reactor melted down. By contrast at Fukushima, three reactors blew up and melted down, and radioactivity continues to pour out into the Pacific. Of course it's hard to find any information about Fukushima these days, I guess it's old news. I for one would not choose to go to the Tokyo Olympics!

      Wow, do you absolutely refuse to look anything up? Chernobyl released ten times the radiation than Fukushima did. It's so easily understood if you just figured out what a containment vessel is instead of repeating nonsense you heard on fear mongering channels.

    Have you covered the radiation metabolizing microorganisms recently discovered on the old reactor room walls? Just found this series, am really curious about that in particular.

    The liquidators were all fathers not young men and they don't have any abnormal mortality rate , they had to work for minutes well within the safety limits what kill you is not the radiation it's absorbing radioactive dust particulates , this is VERY bad

      No one died due to their 2 minutes. It's not even possible, that's why they limited the run.

    Youre telling me that water getting on the nuclear material is causing the spikes in radiation, so they decided to add sprinklers (that shoot water) to slow down the radiation flying around? Now i might have missed something here but that seems pretty stupid. Thats like throwing a match in a bucket of gas hoping itll hit the liquid before the gasses ignite

    So, putting aside the physics, what your saying is that Chernobyl is a ticking bomb just waiting to go boom 💥, leaving a big hole in the ground, a mushroom cloud over Ukraine 🇺🇦 and radioactive ☢️ particles etc released into the atmosphere to do the grand tour of the world and leaving more destruction behind than a Rolling Stones hotel suite after one night. 😀👍🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

    To reduce the numbers... they should spray that neutreliser liquid around the facility and inside it instead of waiting for a big rise in the radiations... they could use helicopter or airplane used to extinct fire to spray the lands and activate the spincklers before filling their tank back again...

    Most liquidators survived for 30-40 years heck there are still liquidators who are alive today. You are literally only talking about the guys who worked on shoveling the roof. There was thousands of jobs to be done hence 90,000 people came to do the work.

    Liquidators turned in to hero something surprising it's very strange how humans or life on type summer even when confronted with something that is serious and real they change you see all around you people that break laws people that cheat on their wives you see all around you with normal people strangely enough when the assets falling and things start getting bad when it becomes real they change they start working together they don't care about the things they used to care about almost as if someone else is in control suddenly may the man who went there chose to stay and knew the risk they were paid more money or they should have gotten more money others would try and cheat them I hate people that make money from someone else's death

    If I was 100 years old and already on my way out, is it theoretically possible that I would make it to the elephants foot and take a picture with it or would the radiation probably kill me before I got there? Minus all the security and stuff like that

  • dosmastrify

    I wish you had explained what heavy water was about then

  • Thorax999

    the said 'elephants foot' is not the uranium changing ...they dropped tons of boron and sand on the reactor to stop the fire and that is what that is, the melted seriously mate that is not hard to confirm

    The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood (Chernobyl). A third of the waters became wormwood, and many died from the water, because it was made bitter. Rev 8:10-11 Apocalypsis Ioannis

    I am living in Bugaria, and do some " preppon "! One of my preps is a Geiger counter, why ? Because when Chernobyl blew all the Paety Officials scuttled to safety and told no one about the danger! I wonder why the cancer deaths in Bulgaria have something to do with this?

    Actually something 10x worse than what happened before can end up happening at Chernobyl... they have no real clue about the basement levels where most of the radiation leaked to except that odds are it still eating through the concrete base and underneath that base still runs a MASSIVE water source... so in theory if the debri manages to eat through the concrete base and gain access to the water beneath you could end up with a neckwear explosion the likes of which this world has never seen
