Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chthulucene,  staying with the trouble at Fukushima
2016 es el año en el que convergen dos acontecimientos de escala global. Por una parte, la posible confirmación por la Comisión Internacional de Estatigrafía de que estamos en una nueva época geológica, el Antropoceno, marcado por la radical afección de la tierra por la actividad humana. Por otra, el quinto aniversario de la explosión de multiples reactores nucleares en Fukushima a 200 km del area urbana más populosa del planeta. Las definiciones de ambos acontecimientos están en disputa. La tesis del Antropoceno es problematizada por otras formulaciones críticas como las del Capitaloceno (Moore), con énfasis en las relaciones de capital y trabajo, o el Chthuluceno (Haraway), como una propuesta para escapar del excepcionalismo humano. Como ya sucediera anteriormente en Chernobyl, la catástrofe nuclear de Fukushima es un tipo de problema presentado por las autoridades como “bajo control” frente a un enorme dispenso por amplios sectores de población y especialistas que denuncian la existencia de unas políticas de invisibilidad (Kuchinskaya, Downer, Petryna, Yablokov, Ross, Alexievich). ¿Cómo se relacionan ambos acontecimientos? ¿Qué aporta Fukushima a las actuales discusiones sobre el Antropoceno? Situándonos en el tiempo de las catástrofes (Stengers) respondemos a la sugerencia de Haraway de permanecer con el problema y a su incitación a la investigación a partir de la ciencia ficción. Apoyándonos del trabajo de una larga serie de escritores, científicos, y artistas, llevamos a cabo una especulación fabulativa sobre el significado de Fukushima como una lucha situada a partir de las figuras de Antropos, del Capital y de Chthulu y sus respectivas máquinas de contar historias.

For 50 years dangerous concentrations of radionuclides have been accumulating in earth, air and water from weapons testing and reactor incidents. Yet serious studies of the effects of radiation on health have been obscured – not least by the World Health Organisation. In June 2007 Gregory Hartl, World Health Organisation (WHO) spokesman for Sustainable Development and Healthy Environments, claimed that the proceedings of the international conference held in Geneva in 1995 on the health (...)

Fukushima Mon Amour: the Hucksters of the Green Atom

Fukushima Mon Amour: the Hucksters of the Green Atom | Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chthulucene,  staying with the trouble at Fukushima | Scoop.it
Is the crisis in Fukushima over or just beginning? You might be forgiven for scratching your head at that one. Nearly five years after the nuclear meltdown triggered by the Tohoku earthquake and subsequent tsunami, one of the planet’s worst radioactive catastrophes has almost completely faded from both the media and public consciousness. Amid that information void, the lethal history of those events has been swamped under pernicious myths being spread by nuclear hucksters.

In brief, the revised story of the Fukushima meltdown goes something like this: the Daiichi facility was struck by an unprecedented event, unlikely to be repeated; the failsafe systems worked; the meltdown was swiftly halted; the spread of radioactive contamination contained and remediated; no lives or illnesses resulted from the crisis. Full-speed ahead!
