Cherynobyl Again

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Pollution

In 1986 there was a nuclear reactor disaster at Chernobyl which is located in the north of Ukraine. This disaster is rated as the worst in history.

This longer-than-usual BBC video (17m) reports on a new source of radiation at this former power plant: forest fires, a record number of them. "The firefighters sent in to tackle the blazes in the radioactive forests agreed to speak to BBC anonymously, scared of losing their jobs." It was chaotic as you will see.
