25th Anniversary of Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster – Part 2

Belarus, Ukraine and Russia mark the 25th anniversary of the nuclear reactor explosion in Chernobyl on April 26.

This is the world’s worst nuclear accident and classified as a level 7.

It happened on April 26, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine).

Large quantities of radioactive contamination was released into the atmosphere that spread over much of the Western Russia and Europe.

Now we are facing another level 7 nuclear disaster – the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster.

I think that nuclear power is efficient but very, very, very dangerous.

These photos show before and after view of Pripyat, a beautiful city that had to be abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

25th Anniversary Of Chernobyl Nuclear Accident – Part 1

These are the photos of the ghost city of Prypiat.

The city was abandoned since 25 years ago because of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident on April 26, 1986.

The city used to be very nice and beautiful but now it looks so sad, ugly and scary.

I think that we should stop building new nuclear power plant because it can be very, very dangerous.

(Please click here for my post on ‘Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster’).

Nuclear power plant can cause dangerous nuclear radiation if a disaster happen and a big area has to be abandoned for a long, long time.

Anti-Nuclear Protests In Tokyo And Seoul-Photos

I think that nuclear power is very dangerous.

Nuclear power is very dangerous because if there is an accident at the power plant, it can cause nuclear radiation like what is now happening in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Nuclear radiation is dangerous because the effect can be something like the effect of a nuclear weapon or an atomic bomb.

And if a nuclear power plant exploded, it can be as bad as being hit by an atomic bomb.

Nuclear power plant is an efficient and clean way to produce electricity but it can also become a disaster of mass destruction that can kill and harm lots and lots of people, animals and plants.

It will take a very, very long time to get rid of the nuclear radiation from the atmosphere, soil and the water system.

Go Green 🙂

I think we should use more wind turbine and solar power to produce electricity.

An environmental activist wearing a mask takes part in a rally demanding the government halt the building of more nuclear plants in South Korea, in Seoul March 28, 2011, on the 32nd anniversary of U.S. Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident in 1979. South Korea, a major global supplier of nuclear plants, will carry on with its nuclear plans despite the crisis at a quake-hit nuclear complex in nearby Japan, a government minister said on Monday. Nuclear power accounts for 31.4 percent of South Korea's electricity generation needs, and the world's fifth-largest oil importer has a target to increase that to 48.5 percent by 2024. It has 7 reactors under construction, with plans to build 6 more and bring to 34 the number on-stream by 2024. REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak
