Because I’m down with the flu, I’m unable to produce a new program this week, so here’s a chance for you to listen to an important story from 2016, where Physicians for Social Responsibility and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War issued a report projecting at least 10,000 excess cancer cases in Japan because of the radioactivity releases from the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster. Originally posted on March 16, 2016 as Nuclear Hotseat #247.
We’ll hear from:
- Dr. Catherine Thomasson, Executive Director of Physicians for Social Responsibility;
- Dr. Alex Rosen of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War;
- Tim Mousseau, PhD, a Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina and on-the-ground researcher into insect and animal mutations at Chernobyl and Fukushima. Link to Nuclear Hotseat #243 featuring extended interview w/Tim Mousseau
- Bob Alvarez, who specializes in nuclear disarmament, environmental and energy policies for the Institute for Policy Studies.
Included will be insights into mainstream media response to this report.
