The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Normalising nuclear – beware of this public opinion campaign – theme for October 2018

We need to explain and to start [nuclear] education at all levels, from kindergarten, school and university, to parliament and ministers. ”  said Mikhail Chudakov , deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA  “our efforts can shift the paradigm from gaining public acceptance of nuclear power to generating well-informed public demand for nuclear power. We must reinforce the benefits of nuclear power……..it will require enhanced international cooperation.”

A global campaign aims at normalising nuclear – getting people’s global acceptance that exposure to increased ionising radiation is OK, that nuclear is essential to save the climate

It beggars belief that the world can ignore Fukushima, Chernobyl, and other nuclear disasters and the growing toll of radiation-caused cancers and birth defects.  And can ignore the link with nuclear weapons and the radioactive wastes piling up. And can ignore the astronomic nuclear costs, and the economic success of renewable energy and energy.

But that is exactly what the nuclear lobby intends.  Starting with our little children at kindergarten, and moving up through the age groups, the nuclear industry will be handing out huge sums of money to the charlatans of propaganda, to spread their lying message.

We know the lies –   the major one for the public is the pretense that nuclear power combats climate change (when in reality, the entire nuclear fuel chain emits huge amounts of carbon.)

We need to think clearly – to not be impressed by the prestigious journals, the lofty scientific academics, the bought politicians, who have found it more comfortable to go along with nuclear lobby spin, than to really think about nuclear issues.

When you find the pro nuclear message in your schools, local councils, universities, libraries, hospitals – with cheerful, colourful, attractive stories –   ask yourself “Who paid for this?  Who gave my university the money for all this?

And don’t be too quick to rubbish us – the unpaid anti-nuclear bloggers and activists.  We are going to need all clear thinking people who are not dependent on corporate funding –  to also co-operate in a global campaign  – to get the truth out about the toxic nuclear industry
