Chernobyl: The horrors of nuclear power - News Summed Up

Chernobyl: The horrors of nuclear power


The five-episode-long miniseries is the dramatic reenactment of the chain of events that caused the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of April 1986 – and the unprecedented cleanup efforts that followed. According to the Moscow Times, the NTV show will be based on a CIA agent sent over to sabotage the nuclear power plant. With the international media's attention drawn to the 1986 nuclear plant explosion and the horrors it brought, I think about how Bangladesh is heading towards nuclear power with the ongoing construction of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant Project (RNPP) in Pabna. I understand that nuclear power has no carbon emissions, and nuclear disasters like Chernobyl and Fukushima are rare occurrences, but that does not mean that they are foolproof. Especially seeing what happens with irregularities already being regularly reported about Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant?
