George Monbiot Nuclear Power Support Challenged
(Pen Llyn, Gwynedd)
A report that all people should read very carefully before voting on this issue and in the forthcoming Assembly Elections in May in light of the current situation in Japan.
One small extract from the report just to give you a taster:
"For example, a recent study published by the New York Academy of Sciences put the excess deaths from Chernobyl at 985,000 – in contrast to the IAEA's figure of 4,000.
In fact, the head of the ICRP's scientific secretariat resigned in 2009 because existing dose models could not predict or explain the health effects of radiation exposures to human populations." (page 9/10)
Today someone estimated that the number of casualties arising from the failure of the Japanese Nuclear Reactors will be similar if not worse than Chernobyl, as there is no end yet in sight for stabilising the damaged facility in Fukushima.
