The Real Cost of Nuclear Power - Chernobyl Photos

I ran across Paul Fusco's portfolio online. He is a wonderful photographer who documented the after effects of the Chernobyl disaster and these photos are a tour of the horror radiation can cause. For anyone who believes the benefits of nuclear power outweigh these life destroying mutations and disabilities, think again. The people in Paul's pictures did nothing moe than happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I warn you that these pictures are at times unbelievable, but you need to see them. With Fukushima fresh in our memories, we need to take all the money funneled into nuclear power and divert it to wind and solar and other sustainable fuels. End of sermon.
