Yesterday was the 31st anniversary of the nuclear accident in Chernobyl, of which Wikipedia reminds us that it “dominates the Energy accidents sub-category of most disastrous nuclear power plant accident in history, both in terms of cost and casualties. It is one of only two nuclear energy accidents classified as a level 7 event (the maximum classification) on the International Nuclear Event Scale, the other being the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011.” A spoof Twitter account reminded us yesterday how Soviet television news reported the disaster (Image: Twitter).
