One day I decided to thoroughly read up on Chernobyl disaster. It was very interesting and enlightening. Wikipedia at the time did a pretty good job of explaining.

The most interesting fact?

The early responders to the accident went so far as to pick up with bare hands the fissile material. And at the time I read about it, about 5-8 yrs ago, none of them had died from it.

There is virtually no greater scam than the anti nuclear propaganda that has been perpetrated upon us.

The official position of the State, is that a global nuclear catastrophe is not possible in the Soviet Union.

I did a VR “tour” of Chernobyl, including a helicopter lift in and out of one of the cooling towers.

There were visits to some of the now all but decayed CARNIVAL-TYPE PARK, some huge government buildings and some apartments.

Spooky and creepy.

Wonder of those were the trees that glowed faintly immediately after their dosing. If so, that smoke is bad stuff.

Are the fires the result of absolutely zero forest management in the area?
You know, like California?

Not saying they are connected, but these fires are right near, and along one of the way-point areas and routes used by civilian dressed SVR and Russian spetsnaz in transit, to multiple U.S./UA training sites.

The fires are not that big, and almost can’t be in this area, this time of year. The forest are mixed, but there is quite a bit of hardwood in this area.

Would have to look at the weather forensically in time, but upon initial observation, and known seasonal weather patterns, this is already not normal for this time of year.

Right now, the wind direction is generally normal for this time of year.

That being said, at the moment of the Sat image published here, the wind was normal from NW to SE, and the fires are more aligned along the covert transit routes from NE to SW.

As well, prolonged exposure to 2.3 sieverts/per hour is not really a good thing. Natural “background” radiation generally ranges from 0.16-0.40 microsieverts/h.

I am sure they have been looked at a whole lot in the past week, but it would be good to see the historical radiation envelope.

I found the HBO series ‘Chernobyl’ to be quite riveting. Factual? No idea, never been to Ukraine.

MIDNIGHT IN CHERNOBYL is a very good book.
