Here In Contrast

I keep reading stories like the following one in Enenews: – 

Radiation Expert: Horrific health toll from Fukushima

Yet here in contrast is a quote which just about says it all.

‘Although the conservation of nuclear industry buildings presents obvious problems, it may be wondered whether future generations will be pleased at the loss of so many pioneering pieces of technology.’*

Though it is a very different heritage which worries me.

It’s what the nukiller industry now refers to as ‘legacy waste’.
