The “Chernobyl” tapestry by a Belarusian artist was gifted in 1991 to the United Nations in New York, five years after the cataclysmic nuclear explosion in Ukraine, which also affected Belarus and Russia. Decades later, the world is still unable to fully turn its back on nuclear power in all its...

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not yet seen the excellent HBO miniseries Chernobyl and might yet do so, you might want to wait to read this article until after you have seen the series, as it contains spoilers.

Many of us are watching the HBO mini-series, Chernobyl now. It's a mega-hit. It's a picture of what happened in 1986 and it's absolutely horrifying. The Russian government is so upset that they want to make their own film. [One jokester told me they'll ask Glenn Greenwald to direct it.] Fred...

One of my first memories of watching TV during the early 1950s was ads promoting leaded gasoline for reducing engine knock.  Little did I suspect the strange history of that gas.  By the beginning of World War I, it became clear that the internal combustion automobile was edging out its rival...

With the escalating doom of climate change hovering over us, it is tempting to push nuclear horror to the back of our minds.  To those of us who grew up in the 1950s, it was omnipresent.  Nuclear war could not exist without nuclear power and on April 26, 1986 the world experienced a form of...

You would think that the country which experienced the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster would understand better than anyone the risks associated with nuclear power.
