8. You gotta be kidding....
>I am so thankful for the brave folks in the scientific community, like Drs. Helen Caldicott

The scientific community doesn't consider Caldicott a scientist.

Her scientific ignorance is such that you can hoist her on her own petard.
I heard her recently on a radio program saying that if one took a single
kilogram of plutonium and dispersed it uniformly in the atmosphere, it
would kill all life on Earth.

As a result of atmospheric nuclear testing prior to the 1962 ban; there are
a few metric tons of plutonium in the atmosphere.

So the amount of plutonium actually in the atmosphere is a few thousand
times the amount that Caldicott claims would kill all life on the planet.

Don't say Caldicott and scientist in the same sentence.

Read what real scientists say - read the Rogovin Report - and you will see
that TMI was a very minor event in terms of public health Of course the
anti-nukes don't want to believe that - but it is the truth.

That's why the Courts dismissed the lawsuits over TMI:
