The radioactive risk society

Source: India Express, New Delhi, Date: May , 2010

On April 10, 2007, a uranium pipeline burst in Jaduguda, causing a spill of the fuel that keeps our nuclear energy schemes running. Further, adds Half Life, a report on radioactivity in India by environmental group Toxic Links, on August 16, 2008, another uranium pipe burst, spewing houses near the village of Dungridih in Jaduguda with uranium waste. The deadly waste circled and flowed into five houses. Impacts on human life are unknown. But while Jaduguda is sadly punished for its proximity to uranium mining and transportation, it is now clear that it is not just places that surround (and feed) our nuclear energy production that are at risk from exposure to radioactive material.
