#里茲螞蟻批判性思考寫作專欄 #Alex專欄 #外師每週精選閱讀
A glance at the news for the past couple of weeks and some of the main stories are clearly enormous warning signs to Taiwan about the dangers of nuclear power. One terrible example is that Japan has announced that they are going to dump radioactive water into the ocean. This will not just pollute waters around Japan’s coast, but also flow around the Pacific Ocean, including to Taiwan, according to modelling of ocean currents. Predictably and understandably, Taiwan and other nations in the region are up in arms about how irresponsible dumping radioactive water into the ocean is, but what other options do the Japanese have left? They were foolish enough to put their faith in nuclear power and it failed horribly, and now they need to deal with the consequences.
What really is the height of hypocrisy, though, is to admonish Japan for trying to dispose of the waste from their nuclear power debacle, and yet simultaneously support increasing the amount of nuclear power in Taiwan at the same time. How ignorant do you have to be to insist that Japan deal with its nuclear disaster by somehow magically making the radioactive soil, air and water clean again, which just isn’t possible at all because that is how destructive and toxic nuclear power generation and its associated waste is. It really makes you wonder how irresponsible, short-sighted, and selfish the politicians (and other citizens) are who still support nuclear power in Taiwan when the horrendous consequences are plain for all to see; especially in light of Taiwan’s recent failings in health and safety. Also, how short are their memories that they cannot even remember the deformed fish in Taiwan found around contaminated cooling water released from Taiwan’s Guosheng Nuclear Power Plant in Wanli?
