The HBO miniseries “Chernobyl” received accolades last night at the Golden Globe Awards, so Time Magazine thought it was a good time to re-up an article from months ago. Wear oven mitts before handling this hot take:
"Chernobyl" just won Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television at the #GoldenGlobes. In her review for TIME, @judyberman wrote that the show "demonstrates what happens when societies stop listening to science" https://t.co/Ser5FQp31V pic.twitter.com/t3Ld8NA4Fq

Hey look, somebody found a way to turn a nuclear reactor explosion into a warning about what might happen if climate change alarmists are ignored, and it’s still a big pile of fail:

That’s not, at all, what it demonstrated. You may wish to spin it that way, but that’s not what the story was about. https://t.co/omrQkpD2Dx

In the miniseries, nuclear scientist Velery Lagosov, played by actor Jared Harris, even pointed out that Soviet reactors didn’t have the safety precautions of reactors in the Western world, and the reason didn’t have anything to do with not “listening to science.”
