A Quarter-Century on…

With the ongoing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear reactors remember those who have stayed and tried to contain things. They are almost certainly subtracting years off their lives for the days spent there.

Japanese officials are now contemplating that the only solution may be the same one used in the Ukraine a quarter-century ago. One cannot help but think of the ghost town that is Chernobyl. This is a film made by Russian filmmaker Vladimir Shevchenko in April 1986 as the tragedy occurred.

He died of radiation poisoning soon thereafter, Jonathan Turley has more of his story.

Like many of those in his film.  Like many of those at Fukushima.
