Extremely brief overview of the physical destruction of nuclear experimentation:

Nevada Test Site, multiple detonations

Hiroshima Japan, detonation

Nagasaki Japan, detonation  

Bikini Atoll, multiple detonations

Hanford, Washington, storage becoming impossible to contain and ?   Russia and China and all nuclear nations of Europe have their own containment problems.  

Simi Valley, California, experimental meltdown and ?

Three Mile Island, Pennsylvania, meltdown

Chernobyl, Ukraine, meltdown and ?

Fukushima, Japan, multiple meltdowns and ?

The question marks are above because not even supposed nuclear scientists know exactly what is occurring in these places.   Over 2,000 experimental nuclear detonations have battered the most amazing place in the solar system, Mother Earth.   Aside from the major nuclear experimentation accidents and detonations which have occurred, which we are aware of, there has been countless leaks and lost materials during the last 67 years of nuclear experimentation mainly in the fields of power generation and martial detonation experimentation.   Some releases were less notable as far as the amount radioactive particles released and some have been kept secret.   Omitting information and keeping secrets is typical for the nuclear experimentation industry, it was incepted in secret and because of its close ties to the global military industrial complex, and because of how insanely dangerous it is, it operates secretively to this day.  

    There are mad scientists among us.   They have opened Pandora's Box.   Nuclear experimentation is mad.   I am not a scientist, nor does one need to be to know enough about the history of nuclear experimentation and human behavior to understand its instability and unsustainability.   Nuclear experimentation is Pandora's Box, we have literally ignited fires that cannot be put out, opened what cannot be closed.   We, the human collective, have released fire which was once only allegory.   And in a world where everything is controlled by the institutions with the biggest sticks, nuclear experimentation being the biggest stick in the universe, provides martial balance in mutual assured destruction.   Not only are we, as a human collective, igniting more fires, we're never going to put the current fires out as long as those with the biggest sticks are allowed to rule over us, as a global collective, threatening mutual assured destruction.
