Einstein said: "Nuclear power is a hell of a way to boil water."

God bless Helen Caldicott! She's one of my heroes. She's been trying to wake our species up to the profound dangers of nuclear power and weapons for decades and, as far as I can tell from listening to this horrifyingly sobering video, her passion and eloquence on the subject has only intensified over the years and with each new nuclear disaster. Will we ever learn? What will it take? Nuclear power sure is, as Dr. Caldicott quotes Einstein as saying, a hell of a way to boil water:

  2. Thank you so much for the heads up, C#! I think it is fixed now--I can't verify if the link works from the computer I'm at right now, but I did take out the extra http. Thanks again!

  4. Okay, SEE, this is what comes from attempting to write and post a blog via the frustraligating little gadget known as the "iPhone". Between that (my only net access from home) and not being able to get to youtube at all from my computer at work, it is challenging to post and/or edit a link (especially to youtube), trust me! So, dear readers (all 18 of you!), please don't think me a total airhead. The weird thing is, I took out the extra http yesterday, yet when I just went back in to add a colon, the second http was baaa-aack, and a colon was there. Oh, the humanity.

    I REALLY think it is fixed now. Thanks again, C# for helping a sister out!
