Like a plague of locusts, the survivors of the
once proud and prosperous Twin Cities spread out across the land, stripping the
countryside of every edible plant and animal.
In a final act of desperation,
half-starved, heavily armed gangs laid siege to the nuclear power facility at
Prairie Island. They had learned that there was food and weapons stockpiled
there for the secret “Nuclear Brotherhood” whose sworn duty was to protect the
nuclear fuel that would remain dangerous for thousands of years. The small band
of defenders in the nuclear facility were able to fight off hungry, suburban
gangs for a few days.
[2012, one year after the Fukushima. What will happen to the 500 nuclear power plants, the waste sites and the military nuclear arsenal, once power failures and civil unrest become common-place? Will there still be the technical means and the personnel to guard the radioactive materials? Will radioactive leakage pollute the waters, and the food chain around the globe? What is then the survival change for plants, insects, fish, birds, animals, humans?]
