dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

Reuters:

“A group of 27 scientists, nuclear experts and former officials urged Japan Thursday to rethink a nearly completed plutonium reprocessing plant that could produce fuel for 1,000 warheads each year.”  Like the world needs more processed plutonium.  And where does the detritus get dumped?

Later: I had linked that last “get dumped” with W. Eugene Smith’s famous Minamata photograph.  I’ve removed the link, and I’ll direct you to please read this article instead, “Tomoko Uemura, R.I.P.”  I will not link the image again, and my apologies to the Uemuras.  My intention was to link Japan, chemical dumping, and human rights via a uniquely impactful photograph.
