Here's an updated version of Barry McGuire's famous protest song from the 1960s. The new lyrics are by a person known as "Gasser",who contributes to the anti-nuclear forum on a site called enenews.com. Thanks, Gasser, for your incisive take on the whole nuke power/nuke weapons mess, including the still-ongoing massive leakage of radionucleides into the Pacific Ocean at Fukushima, Japan. A big thank-you also goes out to artist extraordinaire David Dees for his brilliant graphic creations! 

Here are those new lyrics:

The Fukushima Reactors are Becquerel exploding, Becquerel's overflowing from fuel rack's unloading,
There is more than enough to kill and all still in motion,
If you believe Nuclear is safe what's that Geiger counter you're toting?
And even the Oceans and rivers has bodies floating,
But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

Don't you understand what I'm trying to say?
Can't you see the logic that I'm knowing today?
The big quake has struck, there's no running away
There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave
Take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, boy. 
But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of ELE destruction.

Yeah, my blood's gone rad, feels like stagnation,
I'm sittin' here in Cesium Becquerel fizz~A~lation.
I can't say the truth, NRC knows no regulation,
Handful of Senators passed Price Anderson legislation, 
And marches alone can't bring Nuke's termination,
When human respect was hijacked through procrastination,
This whole crazy world is just too full of Radiation, 
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of Genome destruction.

Think of all the Reactors there are in Red China
Then take a look around here, there's enough to blind ya! 
You may leave here for four months in space,
But when your return it might be exploded out of place, 
The poundin' of the hearts, the pride and the disgrace,
You can bury radioactive dead 
But it will leave a Becquerel trace, 
Hate your next-door-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace, 

And you Bot~Shill me over and over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don't believe…we're in super deep shit….
Ah, you don't believe…that this could be it...
You don't believe we're on the Eve of Destruction

God help us!
No more Nukes!
~Gasser Classic~
