Dan Hirsch Attacks Diablo Canyon Safety

He's an anti-nuclear power activist, but one of the more rational ones:

Where Have All The SORRY DeNiArs Gone?

The DeNiAr group called SARI, which I refer to as SORRY, seems to have lost most of their membership based on their website listing (I'm intentionally withholding a link).  They may just be re-organizing into Members and Associate Members, I don't know.

Where have all the DeNiArs gone?  Sing along!

Do Something!

Helping young folks make a difference on important issues like climate change:

You Don't Believe In Evolution

You either understand it, or you don't:


Fukushima's Water Problem

An NHK documentary:

Nuclear Data App

Thanks to the IAEA.

I Agree With Mark Kermode

I don't even know who he is, but he has reviewed the documentary, "Merchants of Doubt" and he finds the subject enraging.  As do I:

Seawater Sampling In Fukushima

Explaining Evolution

Institute Of Physics? Really?

Here's a review from a couple of years ago on DeNiAr Wade Allison's book.

Besides the book being mostly fiction, did you catch this?

"Only 1 nucleus in a million has changed since the formation of the earth 6,000 years ago."

The Earth formed 6,000 years ago?

The Mind Of A Science Denier

With Donald Prothero (hey, Don...what about health physics denial?):

The IAEA Isn't In DeNiAl

They, with the ILO, are conferencing on occupational radiation issues.

Keith Baverstock - A Refreshing Voice Over DeNiAl

I posted a video of DeNiAr Wade Allison at the FCCJ yesterday. 

Here's Keith Baverstock discussing Fukushima and UNSCEAR,  

He slams Allison at about 21:00, "He's a crank":

Free Fukushima Book

Can be downloaded here.  Unfortunately, the chapter of radiation health effects includes this:

"Some researchers subscribe to the once discredited hormesis concept, a hypothesis that receiving low ionizing radiation in doses just above the natural background level may induce beneficial biological responses. The proponents of this hypothesis explain that a number of compensatory and reparatory mechanisms (e.g., stimulation of the immune response and DNA repair, and activation of apoptosis that eliminates damaged cells that would otherwise become cancerous) are stimulated in response to small doses of ionizing radiation."

It's still discredited....whether some researchers subscribe to the concept or not.

Busby Fukushima Fearmongering Debunked

Wade Allison Fools Journalists

The problem with journalists, is that they feel compelled to get both sides of a story.  

See this video at about 1:30.  

That's not how science works.  We have scientific consensus bodies which draw conclusions based on the evidence.

Wade Allison can't accept those conclusions, so he makes up his own "science".

Let's Talk Science Denial

With Neil deGrasse Tyson & Bill Nye:

Jesus Must Be Smiling

The Vatican has more money than they thought.  Nice problem.

Uranium Drive In

Is a documentary concerning a small town's battle for or against opening a uranium mill.

It's airing right now on the PIVOT channel.
