Gwynne Dyer’s Nov. 26 article, “Anti-nuclear madness doesn’t jibe with concern about global warming,” expresses another narrow viewpoint that essentially assumes that “death” is the only damage that needs to be considered in a nuclear accident.

This writer needs to come and live in Fukushima for a while — preferably somewhere inside the exclusion zone. Since that’s not allowed, one of the “safe” temporary shelters would do. Dyer and his ilk need to experience the fear, isolation, and deprivation and loss first hand, then understand that it’s permanent.
