Details

The presence of critical radioactivity in environments everywhere on the planet is owed to mid-twentieth-century atomic weapon tests as well as to the ongoing use of nuclear energy and concomitant accidents. While the notion of the “Nuclear Age” evoked the idea of a legacy from the past only a few years ago, we currently face a much different nuclear situation amid ongoing geopolitical shifts and ruptures. What are the prospects of living among radioactive substances as military spending on atomic weapons increases and some countries invest in and maintain nuclear power on their paths to “net zero” CO₂ emissions?
