Something I noticedposted by The Vidiot @ 7:50 AM Permalink We watched both versions of the “Life After People” shows, the one on the History channel and the one on National Geographic. Both were interesting. However, one thing we noticed: The History channel’s version didn’t say anything bad about nuclear power plants. Basically, they only mentioned that safety mechanisms would kick in and safely shut down the plants as the juice when off. The National Geographic one said that after the juice runs out, that means that the cooling baths would shut down, which would lead to a runaway overheating of the spent cores, causing a nuclear disaster in every single nuclear plant in the world and additionally, wherever spent rods were stored, creating dead zones around the area and spreading radiation all around the planet. High energy particles would spread first, causing an immediate die-off of the smaller animals and then long term particles would remain, causing problems for generations to come. Much more informative than the History channel’s version, no?
I always knew that the History channel was really the propaganda channel. I just never really knew how bad it was.
Now I know.
And so do you.
