Dr. Caldicott's speech in New Hampshire three weeks after Fukushima

Three weeks after the Japan earthquake and tsunami that devastated the Fukushima nuclear power plant, Dr. Caldicott gave a lecture to residents of Hanover, New Hampshire about the dangers of radioactive elements and the future of the planet. At the start of her lecture, Dr. Caldicott refers to the book Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout. She also mentions her appearance on Democracy Now, debating George Monbiot, http://www.democracynow.org/2011/3/30... after Fukushima. Later in the talk, she refers to her still-relevant book about the present nuclear danger, The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush's Military-Industrial Complex http://thenewpress.com/index.php?opti... and her latest book, If You Love This Planet: A Plan to Save the Earth. For background on this episode, read Dr. Caldicott's recent articles on Fukushima, Unsafe at Any Dose http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/01/opi... and How nuclear apologists mislead the world over radiation http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment... . Watch her April 9 presentation at the recent Chernobyl conference in Berlin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpHrBa... [note: about three minutes of the beginning of the speech are missing, and there is some occasional cross-talk from translaters at the beginning]. See her press conference in Montreal about how Fukushima will dwarf the Chernobyl catastrophe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ITrXV.... Listen to her debate about the ramifications of Fukushima with George Monbiot and Laurence Williams http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/.... Read her interview with CNN: Nuclear radiation 'the greatest health hazard' http://articles.cnn.com/2011-03-25/op... . For the very latest on Fukushima, read Fukushima's Apocalyptic Threat Demands Immediate Global Action http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011... and watch this May 17 TV interview with Professor Christopher Busby from the European Committee on Radiation Risks, "Situation at Fukushima Out of Control." http://rt.com/news/situation-fukushim... For more background on the hazards of nuclear power, read Dr. Caldicott's book Nuclear Power is Not the Answer http://thenewpress.com/index.php?opti... and visit http://nuclearfreeplanet.org/ and http://www.beyondnuclear.org/ . And also read the article 417,000 cancers forecast for Fukushima 200 km contamination zone by 2061 http://lowlevelradiation.blogspot.com... and Life in the Zone: What we're still learning from Chernobyl http://harpers.org/archive/2011/06/li...
