REBECCA DETTMAN ON THE JAPANESE NUCLEAR CRISIS

I’ve always had a strong feeling of horror connected to the idea of a nuclear holocaust. I feel that somewhere — a future life / alternate dimension / distant planet — I have seen and experienced the disgusting effects of ‘nukes’ on people, animals, water and land. Tuning into that energy makes me feel sick horror. In this lifetime, I feel that one of my missions is to help steer humanity away from such a catastrophic path.

This week, Japan has gone all nuclear on us. Which is (thank god) demanding that the Nuclear Question be seriously discussed around the world. (And it needs to be — did you know there’s 442 nuclear power stations internationally, with another 65 under production?!) I’m sorry, but was there ever a more outmoded way to produce electricity?! I’ve just had a heated discussion with my father about this. He is a 60-something, white, middle-class pro-nuclear male. He thinks that nuclear power plants are clean, safe and practical. He says the worst thing that’s ever happened in ‘nuclear history’ was Chernobyl, which ‘only’ injured 65 people. I was so flabbergasted I wasn’t even sure where to begin. Fortunately a quick trip around Googleland revealed that Greenpeace is on my side <http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/campaigns/nuclear/>, plus Dave Kraft, the director of the Nuclear Energy Information Service (a Chicago-based watchdog group), who recently remarked “We have to close down nuclear. That’s the real message from Japan right now. The nuclear age is over.”

Surely in these ascending, holistic, eco-conscious times, we can come up with a more intelligent green solution to power the world than NUCLEAR?! It’s such old-fashioned, old-government, destructive, selfish, short-term 20th century thinking. I’m certain some of the lovely new Crystal or Indigo Children who are coming to earth right now can channel(?) some better answers. I am NOT okay raising my children on a planet that produces plutonium, of which half a kilo — evenly distributed — could cause cancer in everyone on Earth. I am NOT okay living in a country where uranium mining rapes the environment, makes white men rich, and feeds nuclear power plants… such as Fukushima in Japan… where all the latest problems have come from!

Spiritually, I’m wondering if there’s a connection between Japan, all-things-nuclear, and humanity issues (Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Fukushima…) How come bad nuclear stuff always happens there, prompting the rest of us into ethical debates? I intuitively feel Japan is a ‘middle ground’ — they’re different to us, but not so very. Their culture is fiercely organised, efficient, technical and precise. If nuclear disasters can happen to the Japanese, then the rest of us seriously ought to pull our socks up — before it’s too late.
