Face the harsh nuclear reality

Morro Bay



It will take only one catastrophic incident at Diablo to cause untold long-lasting genetic and environmental damage, no matter what the cause of such a disaster. The moving audio narrative of photographer Paul Fusco at inmotion.magnumphotos.com/essay/chernobyl, documents the devastating consequences of Chernobyl 25 years ago.

Those of us living in the shadow of Diablo, in a seismically active area, especially need to be challenged by this harsh photo reality. Steel yourselves for its grim realism. Talk is cheap. We must look at the evils we are complicit with, repent, and convert.

Our children deserve better.
