Geography in the News: Chernobyl’s Legacy | AP Human Geography Herm | Scoop.it

By Neal Lineback and Mandy Lineback Gritzner, Geography in the NewsTM Chernobyl’s legacy endures Chernobyl is a place known around the world. The meltdown at the Chernobyl power plant in 1986 made front-page news and, until Japan’s Fukushima disaster of 2011, was considered the world’s worst nuclear accident.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, Today, 4:04 PM

It is so hard to think about the fact that as the world becomes familiar with a product and the producers of that product gain more wealth, the price of it goes up so much that the producers cannot afford it. Quinoa is such a wonderful food item because of its high nutritional value. As Bolivians become more exposed to the rest of the world they also become exposed to our non-nutritional food offerings and the health of their families declines.
