Topic: Countdown To Zero
Anyone heard about this documentary? The documentary charts the history of the atomic bomb and is working to phase out nuclear weapons. The documentary hits limited UK theatres on June 24th. I have always been fascinated by nuclear weapons and power stations, but I have never been for them. I'm sure with many of you growing up in certain decades, for me the 80's with Chernobyl was a shock with the fear of fallout drifting so far.
More so for those of you in the 50's and 60's if there are any? I think it's insane the massive stockpile of nuclear arms just simply laying around. These are not just bombs, these are weapons of global destruction. If things are not stopped now, what does the future hold for our children. Hell, what about in ten years time, England is planning on opening a few nuclear power stations while Germany and some other places in Europe are shutting them down.
More recently the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. these places are not stable, instead of spending trillions of pounds or dollars on nuclear energy spend that time and money on green, reusable energy. I'm droning on about here, I'm sorry, I'm just thinking a nuclear war is no longer fiction like in movies, it is inevitable.
Anyway, I think the documentary looks pretty cool, if you want to know more, hit up their official website; http://countdowntozerofilm.com/
