Real people are harmed when other people decide to close nuclear plants...

May 22, 2016 by

Article by Rod Adams   ….   I remain perplexed, however, as to why the company has not made any effort to find a buyer for the fleet instead of destroying their productive capacity. It seems to be moving awfully close to a situation where powerful market players have determined that their most profitable course of action is to reduce capacity to drive up prices. Though it’s legal when individual players make independent choices to take that kind of action, there is a zone with fuzzy boundaries in which such actions look like restraint of trade that is not dissimilar from the actions of the Standard Oil Trust. Real people are harmed when other people decide to close nuclear plants...

Mervyn Cohen’s IPR talk – 2016 – “Should the ALARA concept and Image Gently campaign be terminated?”...

May 20, 2016 by

I am charged with the difficult task of presenting the argument that ALARA and Image Gently should be terminated. My plea to you all is to use the infrastructure and energy provided by Image Gently to provide your patients with the best possible care. But, make changes because they are the correct thing to do, not because of a hypothetical fear of radiation. We will present evidence that ALARA and Image Gently have caused harm to our patients by getting them to believe that there is a risk of getting cancer from a CT scan. Mervyn Cohen IPR...

Sustainable Energy — Without the Hot Air...

May 17, 2016 by

In case there are those among us who had not heard of or noted the recent death of David MacKay, Cambridge University physicist and energy analyst, he died last month from stomach cancer at the age of not-quite-49, leaving a wife and two children. David was recently recognized (knighted by the queen – for whatever that’s worth) for his contributions to energy, including his service as Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). His second book, Sustainable Energy – without the hot air, was first put online for free (still there at http://www.inference.eng.cam.ac.uk/sustain…/…/tex/sewtha.pdf) and then printed. It contains some of the best graphic material I’ve seen to explain various aspects of energy....

Low-dose radiation exposure should not be feared – Green Valley News...

Jan 30, 2016 by

http://www.gvnews.com/opinion/columns/editorial-when-scientists-fail-at-science-why-low-dose-radiation/article_6de9d768-671f-11e5-9fc1-a3c4da95f8e0.html The following op-ed was rejected by a popular physics journal and seven of the country’s leading newspapers, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, and LA Times. It is at least as important to know that the mass media, with the notable exception of our own Green Valley News, generally refuse to acknowledge that, for the better part of a century, the science of radiation biology has been corrupted by special interests, such as self-perpetuating regulatory agencies and certain radiologists whose reputation rests on being harbingers of doom and protectors of the populace. This has caused untold harm to hundreds of thousands of people, who have suffered from unwarranted forced evacuations near nuclear power plant accidents and fear-driven refusal to have necessary and potentially life-saving X-rays and CT...
