和我爹一起看了HBO的切尔诺贝利,他说爆炸时他就在周围不远,和基辅人民差不多到30日才知道事情可能有点严重,因为有个苏联部长的儿子跑了。于是去找中国大使馆问,大使馆官腔曰:支持社会主义阵营别跑,你说辐射危险,你们有证据辐射量有多少…

Will Chernobyl Ever End?
Chernobyl was a disaster, but it was not the apocalypse. It was a highly specific event—specific to the reactor and to the Soviet state that it was conceived in. But it should give us pause to reflect generally on the high costs of technological mismanagement and deferred maintenance. It is easy to dismiss a few thousand extra cancers, out of the hundreds of thousands of cancers caused by other sources, when they are not in the bodies of our loved ones; it is easy to say that the Exclusion Zone is relatively small when it is on the other side of the world. These battles of Chernobyl are still being waged, but there may be no winners in the war.
