The Warp Of Electoral Politics

"Living in a nuclear wasteland"
This is the headline to today's editorial piece in the Taipei Times after trace amounts (>30 Bq/kg) of radioactive isotopes (cesium 137 and cobalt 60) were found on Lanyu island (蘭嶼), where a low-level waste site is located. Essential context: there are legislative and presidential elections in January.

Reflect on the comparison once more:

"Nuclear wasteland"... >30Bq/Kg cesium 137 (trace).
