[OT] They're restarting Chernobyl?

Actually, the worst damage possible has already occurred. If it happens
again, it won't do much additional damage, aside from loss of in-plant life.
The surrounding area is already lethally contaminated. A fossil-fuel
powered plant would create as much environmental damage over the six or
seven years between major incidents, so I don't see this as a major risk to
us. Now, if I lived nearby, I might feel differently.
