THanK YoU, Xeena dear! I fully comprehend your fears on nuclear safety! Unless we have the technology to encapsulate nuclear leaks and waste instead of just 'burying' them, it can never be safe. I hope people are not so naive anymore especially in this very informative age
Amazing piece Des the colors are wonderful, and the wondrous light traveling up the bend,,great tribute for another major disaster, unbelieveable to fully comprehend!! I'm against nuclear power and the tremendeous impact it has on all living organisms, it can never, never be safe enough, imho!! It's really so scary...But your painting IS FANTASTIC!!
whaw this is really really well painted, i believe it so much, the light in the river gives it so much depth and contrast such a fabulous tribute, you are such a good painter and you can paint it all, this is a truly great landscape
Looking at it as an aspie, there are 2 things about neurotypical people - they don't really feel the need to expose their weaknesses and they are intellectually dishonest, meaning they will say one thing but not mean what they say. Not surprisingly, anything can go wrong if you take it from that perspective.
It seems to me that mankind is too prone to be optimistic. We think that the worse can never happen and we can handle what problems might arise. Taking risks has made our species develop but we don't seem able to judge correctly.
Asian countries, in particular China, are pushing to continue with their nuclear programs. I wonder if the human race have run out of options or are we doing it out of greed for more power. We can't afford to have more of these sitting on earthquake prone regions. Right now, I'd rather be living in James Cameron's Pandora
France is in a seismic zone all along the south coast, in the centre, although that part has extinct volcanos and in the mountainous regions, even the oldest ones. There is a small rift valley between France and Germany, with a low mountain ridge each side covered in fir trees. The broad river Rhine runs down the central plain and the nuclear installation is built on the bank on our side. I suppose it was put there to allow a constant supply of water. There is a lot of discussion at the moment. France draws 70% or more of its electric energy from this power source. We need to convert to renewable and less dangerous sources.
