There's nothing about asking for an apology here. It's more that humans aren't much more than stupid apes except apes aren't quite as stupid.
Sorry, not clear. I mean with the discovering of atomic decay processes, humans got seriously in over their heads in a lot of ways.
The Columbia River is already radioactive thanks to the sloppy / slapdash Nagasaki bomb builders, and now the local train company is dumping coal dust into the river from its trains, hoping the public won't care or notice (when did the public ever care about or notice anything right?).
Did you hear the latest, about that "super safe" nuclear waste disposal facility, now burping radioactive hiccups because the wrong kitty litter was used?
Anyway, karma has a way of meaning the same thing as physics means by "cause and effect". A lot of us will have shorter life spans thanks to that genie getting out of the bottle. Fukushima, Chernobyl... these are trillion dollar calamities, right up there with BP's uncorking oil and pouring countering chemicals into the Gulf of Mexico.
Like I said, stupid apes. Who needs "The Dawn of..." when we're already up to Twilight Zone.
