ACCIDENTE (1/4)

📆 26 de abril de 1986, los habitantes de Pripyat amanecen ante el peor accidente nuclear de la historia. La losa de la Unidad 4, de 2500 toneladas de peso, había volado por los aires en una explosión 💥 de vapor ImageImage
Simplificando, una combinación del diseño inestable, de errores humanos y de presiones políticas para realizar una prueba muy compleja en la que se incumplieron múltiples principios de cultura de seguridad

Tal día como hoy pero en 1986 tenía lugar el accidente nuclear de #Chernobil , el más grave de la historia, en la central nuclear Vladímir Ilich Lenin, ubicada en el norte de Ucrania,país que pertenecía en ese momento a la URSS. Sus consecuencias serían desastrosas #Chernobyl
La explosión en el reactor numero 4 de la central nuclear durante un ensayo rutinario de seguridad, causaría 30 víctimas directas justo después del accidente y varias décadas de fallecimientos causados por las secuelas radiactivas de este desastre.
Se produjeron 1 ó 2 explosiones sucesivas, seguidas de un incendio, que volaron la tapa del reactor de 1200toneladas.
Esto expulsó una gran cantidad de material radiactivo a la atmósfera creando una nube radiactiva que afectaría a gran parte del Europa entre otros

¡Escuchad este sonido..! Soy amante de los #viajes a lugares remotos, pero también amo el #Diexismo y cazar frecuencias. En 1987 con 11 añitos escuchaba esta señal desde Sevilla, donde vivo. Pero ¿Qué tiene que ver #Chernobyl con este sonido tan misterioso?
Abro hilo 👇👇👇
Pero dejemos para el final lo de la señal. Cuando decidí ir a #Chernobyl lo hice también para conocer #Transnistria, un país que no existe dentro de Moldavia en la frontera con Ucrania. Fui en trenes nocturnos de Bucarest→Chisináu→Tiráspol→Kiev y de allí a la central nuclear.
Viajar a #Chernobyl es lo más fácil del mundo, al menos antes del #COVIDー19. Hay miles de agencias con diferentes paquetes turísticos. Yo fui con @CHERNOBYLwelcom, un día por unos 110 € y hasta me dieron de comer. Con transporte desde el centro de Kiev hasta Chernobyl. Volveré.

#1 Em fevereiro, a reputada @TheLancet publicou o artigo abaixo refutando a tese de que o #COVIDー19 tenha surgido do mercado de Wuhan. Uma parte importante dos primeiros infectados não tinha relação com o local.
thelancet.com/journals/lance…
#2 Apesar de zero confiáveis, as autoridades locais parecem ter mostrado com certa consistência que os morcegos portadores do #Coronavirus que deu origem ao #COVIDー19 não são endêmicos da região e tampouco são vendidos como iguaria no mercado de Wuhan. Surgindo mais dúvidas.
#3 Em meio às dúvidas, surgiram muitas teorias bem criativas. Que cientistas americanos e canadenses venderam vírus para #China que o usou como “arma biológica”. Outros alentaram a teoria de que a China intencionalmente quebrou o mundo para avançar sobre os seus escombros.

[1/32] “Os idiotas que nos governam” é o artigo do filósofo francês Fréderic Lordon que não só nos elucida sobre a situação passada pela França durante o período inicial da crise #coronavirus, mas lança importantes insights sobre a nossa própria situação no Brasil. Segue o fio.

Coronavirus outpaced SARS and Ebola in its first 55 days to sicken 81,000+ people worldwide.

President* Trump appears to prioritize protecting markets over protecting lives.

PLEASE wash your hands often...

President* Trump says coronavirus is a hoax.

Coronavirus shows us that President* Trump is a hoax, too.

Mike Pence touches his face and shakes hands too much to lead a #COVID19US crisis response.

If you have the bad luck of being near Pence, don’t shake hands, don’t touch your face, and WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN.

Don't tell my mother I went to #Chernobyl (and took a drone with me).

@akhbar

2/ As you can see in the drone footage above, I’ve recently visited the Chernobyl's exclusion zone in the Ukraine. This is a restricted 30 km wide circle around the #Chernobyl nuclear reactor.

For people who also want to go, here are some tips I want to share with you.
3/ You can’t just enter the 30 km wide #Chernobyl exclusion zone, you need a permission. Best to check online for one of the many Ukrainian tour operators organizing Chernobyl trips.

Beware: You need extra permission to fly a drone so ask your tour operator.

1/ After watching the tv series, I went to #Chernobyl where in 1986 worst nuclear disaster in history happened.

Buildings crumbling, nature taking over, population gone, wild horses, Lenin still standing. Chernobyl is a time capsule.

2/ After filming this #Chernobyl report, I threw away my clothes and this was first time I do that after a story. Officially radiation isn't a problem in Chernobyl but hey, you never know.

Anyhow story is in Arabic but I'll do this thread in English to explain a bit.

@akhbar
3/ To visit the 30 km exclusion zone around #Chernobyl, you need a permission.

As you can only enter the exclusion zone with a guide, your tour operator will also organize the permission to enter. You need to do this about a week before your visit.

So, after plenty of recommendations, I finally got around to starting with the @HBO series #Chernobyl over the weekend, and watched the 3rd episode last night.
Before I go and elaborate, a shout-out to the creators @clmazin et al, for this scene.
@HBO @clmazin Let's look at the painting on the back wall, and its placement at this point in the episode.
What is this painting? What is its significance? #Thread
@HBO @clmazin Even while engrossed in the looming sense of doom, this painting stands out. I knew I had seen it somewhere during my time in Russia.

The painting is called Иван Грозный и сын его Иван 16 ноября 1581 года -
Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581

LA NATURALEZA DE #Chernobyl
Después del accidente se pensaba que el área alrededor de Chernobyl se convertiría en un desierto para la vida durante miles de años. Veamos qué ha pasado con la naturaleza de la Zona... Image
Qué tipo de paisajes nos encontramos hoy en #Chernobyl? Un desierto nuclear, como se preveía? Image
En la actualidad #Chernobyl está lejos de parecer un desierto nuclear, manteniendo un paisaje que alterna grandes zonas de bosque (que han aumentado enormemente desde el accidente) y zonas acuáticas. Image

RADIACIÓN y HUMANOS EN #CHENRBOYL
Voy a intentar aclarar parte del desconocimiento / desinformación que hay sobre este tema, basado en mi experiencia de trabajo en la Zona. Empezamos...
Cuando se habla de radiación en #Chernobyl, este es el tipo de mapas que es necesario utilizar. En ellos se ven amplias áreas en la que la radiación hoy es baja/muy baja (verde/azul claro), y también áreas con niveles muy altos (rojo/púrpura).
Es decir, por un lado gran parte de la Zona de Exclusión de #Chernobyl presenta niveles de radiación que permitirían el reasentamiento humano, y por otro lado quedan zonas con niveles de radiación varios órdenes de magnitud superiores a la radiación "base" (background radiation).

Tonight on the @CNN #climateforum, Democratic candidates will talk through their plans to rapidly transition our country to clean energy. We’re guessing we’ll hear a lot about #renewables & carbon pricing. But what will they say about #nuclear energy?

#DemDebates
Will they mention that it’s the largest source of carbon free electricity in the US?

#climateforum @wolfblitzer @ErinBurnett @andersoncooper @ChrisCuomo @DonLemon
thx:@GovNuclear
Will anyone point out that, considering the scale of the challenge, we should get rid of fossil fuels before even thinking about getting rid of nuclear?

Why this story isn't getting more press coverage is baffling: #Russia just buried 5 nuclear scientists killed in a nuclear blast in the Arctic. There is of course a radiation cloud. - BBC News bbc.com/news/world-eur…
#Russia explosion: Village on-again off-again evacuation cancelled after suspected nuclear missile accident in the Arctic - CNN cnn.com/2019/08/13/eur…
#Russia's got a pretty astounding record of irresponsible dishonesty when it comes to catastrophic events that impact people lives. Everyone's heard of #Chernobyl. Few know about #Chelyabinsk—the most polluted place on the planet. I wrote about it in 2016. eastwestblog.net/2016/04/26/ukr…

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

So, I binge-watched @HBO's #Chernobyl this weekend, and I have a few thoughts about nuclear (surprise!).

First off, I strongly recommend watching it. It is thrilling and terrifying, well acted and shot, and overall an excellent miniseries.

Short thread!

1/6
Watching the horrific nature of the accident and its aftermath, it doesn't take much imagination to see why people who lived through the event still have an innate fear of nuclear power.

Of course the show is dramatized, but its easy to appreciate the fear avg citizens felt

2/
Thousands of people died, hundreds of thousands displaced, and millions more spent weeks to months in fear of the possible impacts of Chernobyl.

Further, scary tail risks like nuclear play into exaggerated expectation cognitive biases.

Watched episode 2 of #Chernobyl last night, where the three brave men return to the radioactive death zone to open the sluice valves.

And now, with no protective clothing whatsoever, I am on my way to Boris Johnson’s campaign launch.
Wasn’t expecting it to be even hotter and even sweatier than an exploded nuclear reactor but it is.

There’s radioactive material absolutely everywhere. Baker, Dorries, IDS...a veritable who’s who of the abysmal, lining up to turn the country into an international embarrassment.
One or two overheard words at the @BackBoris launch:

“I’ve never been in a room with more a*seholes in my life.”

*I typed out a couple more but have now decided against it.*

#Chernobyl ¿Cual es el precio de las mentiras? 'Ser científico es ser ingenuo. Somos pocos los que que buscan la verdad y muchos los que no la aceptan. Pero la verdad está ahí, la elijamos o no, no sabe de necesidades, deseos, gobiernos, ideologías o religiones." Valery Legasov
#Chernobyl Legasov murió el 26 de abril de 1988, en la madrugada, a la 1:23:45, que fue exactamente la hora en que estalló el reactor 2 años antes. Su búsqueda de la verdad le llevó al suicidio. Ocho años después de su muerte, le dieron el título de Héroe de la federación Rusa.
#Chernobyl Gracias @HBO por otra OBRA MAESTRA que relata uno de los episodios más oscuros de nuestra historia. La ambientación, recreación de los hechos e interpretaciones son de un nivel excepcional. Serie vital para aprender de nuestros ERRORES. ¡No la olvidemos NUNCA! ✊🏼

Hi, newish writers who love horror and are trying to figure out how to write great horror. I have a rec for you this morning. #Chernobyl is one of the greatest, most terrifying horror stories I’ve ever seen. The reason why is simple so I thought I’d share in case it helps!
A good portion of you will know this already but I’m sharing as someone who got hired on a horror show and then had to have this explained to me. I figure I can’t be the only one out there. :)
Obviously the miniseries is great for a large number of reasons to do with people’s talent. The actors, director, DP, PD, and MAN the writing in those monologues about truth. Also that shit really happened. Recently.
