After the sequel-bait disaster that was the final season of Game of Thrones, the HBO mini-series Chernobyl is a 5-episode tour de force that reminds us of some things that we may have forgotten. Or never learned in the first place.
Chernobyl is not this.
It's not even this.
Chernobyl is Orwell's 1984 come to life and a serious reminder of what happens when politics comes before truth.
The lesson is stark. We owe it to ourselves to return to reality. Now is the time, before we MAGA ourselves into a worse disaster.
The Chernobyl president - The Boston Globe — It’s not just Trump’s ability to explode and contaminate everything in his vicinity. It’s the mendacity that fills his lungs.

The Chernobyl Story [Updated & Expanded] — I've assembled this collection of images surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear disaster to help people gain a better understanding of what happened. It is a very brief, but complete(ish) retelling of what happened, using edited text from a book I've written called "Chernobyl 01:23:40". The book can be bought from Amazon, if anyone's interested.
Sometimes you feel like a duck. Sometimes you don't.
