There’s nothing wrong with listening. It’s a great way to form a balanced opinion. Yet, the warnings from anti-nuclear activist Dr. Helen Caldicott presented through the media over the last week are being locally ignored.

She has addressed the U.S. senate, the UN Staff Committee for Nuclear Disarmament and testified before the Australian Federal Senate Special Committee. She was also an instructor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and held personal meetings with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
