What do you do with a radioactive wasteland? Get a little poetic justice out of the nuclear reactor disaster that created the hellscape and turn it into ground zero for a much different kind of alternative energy, naturally.

That's the scheme Ukraine is shooting for in and around Chernobyl, the stricken site of the Soviet Union's infamous 1986 disaster. A proposal mailed around to some big financiers, including US investment companies, framed the plan as an idea whose time has finally come.
