Nukeletter 2 of Nukeletters 1 – 14, by Scott Watson, from Sendai, Japan

Dialogue [Nukeletter 2]

 

Hiroyuki: I don’t care.

Scott: About

Hiroyuki: Radiation.

Scott: You don’t care because

Hiroyuki: There is no information. It is impossible to care.

To go or to stay. Whether to eat this spinach or drink

this water. Someone in authority says it is safe. Someone

else in authority says it is not. It means there is no information.

Scott: Confusion.

Hiroyuki: Yes. It is impossible to care.

Scott: Even though you might get sick.

Hiroyuki: Yes.

Scott: You are twenty years old. You have your adult life

ahead of you.

Hiroyuki: But I don’t care.

Scott: This is the condition nuclear energy forces us into. Even if we

abandon nuclear energy it will not help us right now.
