Safecast or the Production of Collective Intelligence on Radiation Risks after 3.11

Safecast or the Production of Collective Intelligence on Radiation Risks after 3.11 | Fukushima | Scoop.it

Safecast is a network of concerned citizens created after 3.11 to measure nuclear radiation and provide these measurements in real time on the Internet. This is one among many instances of the production of information on radiation risks after 3.11. While Safecast has contributed to the collective intelligence on these risks, its members have claimed that such measurements and data are “politically neutral”.

El "omnicidio" nuclear

En los 35 años desde la explosión y fusión en Three Mile Island, ha habido un feroz debate sobre si causó la muerte de seres humanos. En 1986 y 2011, Chernóbil y Fukushima se sumaron a la discusión. Cada vez que ocurren estos desastres hay quienes afirman que a los trabajadores, residentes y personal militar expuestos a la radiación estarán bien.

Por supuesto lo sabemos con más certeza. Nosotros, los seres humanos, no saltaremos a un recipiente lleno de agua hirviendo. No estamos contentos cuando los miembros de nuestra especie comienzan a morir a nuestro alrededor. Pero los nuevos y aterradores descubrimientos científicos nos han obligado a considerar una realidad mayor: el daño de abajo hacia arriba que la contaminación nuclear puede hacer a todo el ecosistema global.

Cuando se trata de nuestros sistemas de apoyo más amplios, la industria corporativa de la energía cuenta con que nosotros toleraremos la radiación de nuestros semejantes, de los cuales dependemos, y con que permaneceremos dormidos hasta que sea demasiado tarde para dar marcha atrás.

Un ejemplo claro es un nuevo informe del Smithsonian sobre Chernóbil, uno de los documentos más aterradores de la era atómica.

Pablo de Soto's insight:

En 1982, el almirante Hyman Rickover, fundador de la armada nuclear, lo dijo de esta manera:

"Hasta hace unos 2.000 millones de años, era imposible tener alguna vida en la tierra; es decir, había tanta radiación sobre la tierra que no se podía tener ninguna vida – peces o alguna otra cosa.

Gradualmente, hace cerca dos mil millones de años, la cantidad de radiación sobre este planeta … se redujo y posibilitó que se iniciara alguna forma de vida, y comenzó en los mares…

Ahora, cuando volvemos a utilizar la energía nuclear, estamos creando algo que la naturaleza trató de destruir para posibilitar la vida…

Pero cada vez que se produce radiación, se produce algo que tiene vida, en algunos casos durante miles de millones de años, y pienso que entonces la raza humana va a arruinarse, y es mucho más importante que obtengamos el control de esa horrible fuerza y tratemos de eliminarla.
