Irradiated Genes

"... This threat is different in kind from other environmental problems because radioactivity directly disrupts or destroys the ability of genes to accurately replicate. This is not repairable. We menace everything, not just ourselves...."

Our future’s going to be terrible,
Extinction means life is unbearable;
Just check it out, dude:
Life on earth is now screwed—
The damage we’ve done’s not repairable.

Radiation is bad for our genes,
It busts them to small smithereens;
There are no vaccines,
So our prepping routines
Are just band aids, with bullets and beans.
