April 26 was the anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, and I watched a dramatization on it on PBS. Oddly enough, the filming reminded me of Dr. Who or something done in the 1950's, which struck me as a novel way in which to tell the story. The disaster had the potential of becoming something much more apocalyptic, you can read more more about it here.
While thinking about Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and more recently Fukushima, it occurred to me that the world as we know it may well be destroyed by 'accident' or human error, rather than design. Or perhaps by a really big meteor.
It's a rainy day today.
