Watching Chernobyl

The guy who used to be a baker(?) who's now "the man in charge" is just too familiar.

want to provide a little longer review?

did you ever view that old site where the girl rides her motorcycle through the chernobyl area with her father (scientist)'s geiger counter, and takes a bunch of interesting photos?

What I found familiar was that people who knew nothing about the situation made every attempt to minimize the dangers. The scientists and nuclear physicists were (almost) ignored by politicians and party bureaucrats. Fortunately, there were a few scientists (who in the series are condensed into a couple) who got some attention. We (i.e., the world) was lucky. There could have been an explosion that would have made from Kiev to Minsk, and most of the Ukraine, uninhabitable for decades or more.

Well, I shouldn't have said the world. The Earth recovers quickly to almost anything. It's just that human habitation becomes problematic. Anyway, for me, it's emblematic of the climate controversy today. I.e., sure, any dummy can say there's nothing to worry about.
