the report seems to be somewhat accurate, but it also seems to have gotten
things confused between Chernobyl and Fukushima.  For example, I doubt that
forest near Chernboyl died because of Cs-137 contamination and died because
of much higher level contamination unique to Chernobyl.

I also note that almost no one is really dressed in proper radiation
protective clothing and that makes me wonder just how hazardous this
environment really is.
