NH #574: 11th ANNIVERSARY! Tritium Radiation Lies – Dr. Ian Fairlie on Fukushima, Pilgrim

Yup – it’s 11 years since we started!
Consider donating $11 (or more!) in honor of this unbelievable milestone!
Dr. Ian Fairlie and Nuclear Hotseat’s Libbe Halevy, mid-interview, talking about tritium radiation lies
regarding nuclear industry plans to dump tritium-contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean and Cape Cod Bay.

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Tritium Radiation Lies and planned radioactive water releases at Fukushima in Japan and Pilgrim nuclear reactor at Cape Cod in Massachusetts: Dr. Ian Fairlie is a London-based radiation biologist and independent consultant on radioactivity in the environment.  After receiving a degree in radiation biology from Bart’s Hospital in London and doctoral studies at Imperial College in London and Princeton University in the US, he became concerned about the radiological hazards of nuclear fuel reprocessing. He worked as a civil servant on the regulation of radiation risks from nuclear power stations. From 2000 to 2004, Dr. Fairlie was head of the Secretariat of the UK Government’s CERRIE Committee on internal radiation risks. Since retiring from Government service, he has been a consultant on radiation matters to the European Parliament, local and regional governments, environmental NGOs, and private individuals, with a focus on the radiation doses and risks arising from the radioactive releases at nuclear facilities.  He is an expert on tritium radiation.

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency, FEMA, has published a spiffy new PLANNING GUIDANCE RESPONSE TO A NUCLEAR DETONATION – 250 pages of intentional nukespeak obtuseness. And not once does it make the universally accepted response to a nuclear detonation: kiss your posterior goodbye!

Nuclear Hotseat Hot Story with Linda Pentz Gunter:

Why in the world would Ukraine, in the middle of a war that threatens its existing nuclear reactors, plan on building more?
