Roger Hedgecock says destruction of Hiroshima & Chernobyl not so bad after all, was just "hysteria" [View all]

During his talk show on Jan.29, 2013 on KFMB AM in San Diego, the right wing commentator Roger Hedgecock said that the grave reports of nuclear destruction of Hiroshima in World War 2, as well as the meltdown and explosion of the Cernobyl nuclear power plant in 1988, were exaggerated due to "hysteria" from "anti-nuke folks". He suggested the areas have been improved by the disasters.

Hedgecock said he visited Hiroshima and rather than being "nuclear wasteland, unfit for habitation for a thousand years...devoid of life for tens of thousands of year" as predicted by "anti-war, anti-nuke folks," instead "Hiroshima is one of the most modern cities because it had an instant redevelopment plan" which he laughingly mentions "destroyed the whole city". He said Hiroshima was previously "a rabbit warren of mideval streets" but "it now has broad avenues, magnificent highrises" with "four or five times the population it had in 1945."

Hedgecock went on to say that this improvement by nuclear destruction "has happened again" in Chernobyl, Ukraine, the site of a nuclear power plant meltdown and explosion in 1986. The Chernobyl area now has a "surge in wildlife" with no mutations like "giant wolves or three-headed deer," Hedgecock said. "The dirtiest radioactive site in Europe has become the continent's biggest animal sanctuary. So much for the hysteria."
