“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.
