    It is very likely they are tinted by some weird Chernobylesque isotope; if this is so and I stand correct, what about the rest of local and surrounding biota? Isn’t this an indicative that humanity by and large may be running serious peril, considering that there are nuclear power stations almost all over the World? Answer this fast: are we to survive such monstrosity which are nuclear power stations and the like, commited in the name of sciences and of civilization? Yes or no?
