NUCLEAR IS NEVER SAFE

That's the title of an article in today's Guardian, on the Comment & Debate page, by John Vidal. But I can't find a link to it on the Guardian website so, because it is of such vital relevance to the events in Japan right now and to the future of this fragile planet, I've scanned it and am posting it in its entirety below. 

Please link, copy, quote and disseminate it by whatever means you use - blog, Tweet, FaceBook etc. to share the things that really matter to you. The internet is said to be the newest and most effective instrument for people power: could it generate enough people power to influence the nuclear industry, and the decision-makers who support it, to reconsider their short-term and long-range plans?

Thanks Dorothee. I tried all sorts of things earlier and couldn't find it. I'm glad the link is there anyway and will add it to my post.

Absolutely. The clinching argument against nuclear power is not the scientific one but the human one. People build, run, organize, work in these places. People are fallible. End of argument, as I see it. Nuclear power is the height of hubris.

Dominic, that's it: the human argument is the one to listen to and act upon. Nothing else matters more.
