This is a quick response to Gwynne Dyer's barbarous 'article' Nuclear Madness in which he lays out the ridiculous rhetorical madness supportive of nuclear experimentation only ideologues could conjure.  

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/eo20121126gd.html

The article starts off with gross exaggeration used as a tool for humorous distraction.   This is a classic diversion technique used by those who seek to discredit alternative perspective.   It's a Martian diversion, an insertion of ridicule that makes those who suggest alternative perspective to the institutional formality as absurd.   This tactic is used whenever anyone questions the official presentation, the formality as opposed to the truth (for elaboration on formality and truth see here: http://www.activistpost.com/2012/11/political-formality-and-truth.html ) of the situation.   Gwynne begins and infuses his 'article' with inept journalistic attempts at humor.   I say inept both because he's not funny and it's obvious he researched the subject of nuclear experimentation with the intent of supporting formality not finding information.   He then counts the relatively small number of deaths immediately following the nuclear reactor meltdowns --and that's it.   He does not compute the evacuees, the destroyed environment and the fact that we are only 67 years into a global experiment of eons.  

He then goes into the old despicable comparison of burning fossil fuels globally as if it is somehow different from burning nuclear fuels.   He further tangentially reduces the global-warming debate to one of temperature and not the paradigm poisoning caused by man instituting the petrolithic era and the nuclear era.   He belittles the global-warming debate by removing the root of the question: are our actions destroying our environment?   Petrol and nuclear-sourced fuels are all bad for life, but good for business.   These two oligarchical energy sources are the same formation of oligarchical extraction, refinement and distribution, benefiting a few and costing all life on the planet.   These energy systems destroy everything at every step.

Nuclear experimentation has destroyed has destroyed whole regions of the planet and degraded the whole planet in incalculable ways.   To criticize any institution or any individual for changing course away from nuclear experimentation is equivalent to suggesting we have reached the pinnacle of invention and need to proceed no farther.   There are endless alternative-energy systems, but none so intensely oligarchical, beneficial to a few.  

Another obvious omission in this 'article' is the fact that no other energy system is so supportive of the military-industrial complex and thus, war.   To act as if one can measure the Pandoric nuclear environmental destruction reaped on our entire planet is a fool, for we are 67 years into an experiment of hundreds of thousands of years.   To calculate the costs of nuclear experimentation would take a real journalist, not an ideologue or dare I say shill.   We cannot measure how catastrophic nuclear experimentation only considering the last couple of decades.   But we can start with the facts.   The fact is nuclear experimentation is fuel for the military-industrial complex and energy oligarchs.   And nuclear experimentation has destroyed parts of the earth which were once pristine, Ukraine, Japan and Bikini Atoll to name just a few.   Without even taking into account the deaths Gwynne pointed out as being insignificant quantification for change, without attempting to count the innumerable deaths nuclear experimentation has caused, there is stark reason for ceasing nuclear experimentation.
