Waste Waters

Waste Waters | Visualizing Fukushima | Scoop.it

In the decades after World War II, the U.S. government and licensees dumped tens of thousands of containers of radioactive waste at dozens of dump sites in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, often sealed in stainless steel drums that were expected to eventually deteriorate. A Journal review of federal and other records shows there are questions about the exact locations, contents and condition of waste containers, along with concerns about potential threats to the environment and public health if seafood gets contaminated. Federal officials say that testing done over the years hasn’t produced evidence of harm.

Architecture in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Design, Deep Time, Science and Philosophy

Matters of Cosmopolitics: On the Provocations of Gaïa
Isabelle Stengers in Conversation with Heather Davis and Etienne Turpin
Isabelle Stengers’ varied research interests, compelling publications, and breadth of influence make her one of the most important writers of our time. Her early training as a chemist and her collaboration with physicist Ilya Prigogine allowed her to productively and critically intervene in the discourses and practices of scientific knowledge production. She has published extensively in collaboration with other writers on topics including psychoanalysis, politics, feminism, philosophy, and science, although her primary concern remains the relation of the latter two. Attending to the specificity of laboratory work, Stengers considers this model of knowledge production to develop what she calls an “ecology of practices,” thereby situating scientific knowledge as specific, local, and evolving, while extending the idea of practices and practitioners to other fields through her notion of “cosmopolitics.” “One aspect of the cosmopolitical proposal,” according to Stengers, “is thus to accentuate our own rather frightening particularity among the people of the world with whom we have to compromise.”[1] The strength and breadth of Stengers’ force as a writer comes from her training as a philosopher, particularly her careful explications of the thought of Alfred North Whitehead and William James. From these early pragmatists, she has retained efficacy as a central, guiding political principle, against more popular notions of choice or free will.

After Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a third nuclear atrocity: the corruption of science

After Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a third nuclear atrocity: the corruption of science | Visualizing Fukushima | Scoop.it
Following the atomic bombs exploded over Japan in 1945 a second crime against humanity took place, writes Chris Busby: the deliberate falsification of science to hide the dangers of ionising radiation, perpetrated to quell public opposition to a new age of nuclear bombs and energy. The fraud continues to this day, but finally the truth is winning out.

When the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster happened, and especially when the Fukushima nuclear power plant explosion happened, before that I already had ideas for a film and this story, but because of that happening I was able to expand and deepen the story that I already had in my mind, and that ultimately came out to about a 90-minute, feature-length story.
