AI’s Standards Ignored

The Amnesty International report violates the organization’s own research standards. As documented by Professor Tim Hayward here, the Secretary General of Amnesty International, Salil Shetty, claims that Amnesty does its research in a very systematic, primary, way where we collect evidence with our own staff on the ground. And every aspect of our data collection is based on corroboration and cross-checking from all parties, even if there are, you know, many parties in any situation because of all of the issues we deal with are quite contested. So it’s very important to get different points of view and constantly cross check and verify the facts.”

Obama’s EPA is ready to radically raise the amount of radiation in our water.

Comments

Beyond Nuclear:

Tell EPA: don’t repeat Flint! Protect our drinking water from radioactivity!
The EPA is proposing VERY high radiation levels for drinking water that can be used not only for emergency releases, but in any instance governments and regulators wish to ignore more protective standards. Added to food and other exposures, these levels will be even more dangerous to public health.

These levels can be thousands of times higher than current EPA standards. There is indication in documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that, in some cases, these allowed exposures could cause acute radiation effects, such as vomiting and fever. Clearly EPA doesn’t remember Flint, MI and how they utterly failed to protect public health, particularly health of pregnancies and children.

Further, EPA is basing its pregnancy and childhood exposure levels on nearly unobtainable reports from a scientific body that takes funding from the nuclear industry lobbying group, the NEI.
Time is short so A CALL is needed! PLEASE CALL Gina McCarthy at 202-564-4700.
Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA is ignoring their own drinking water and risk standards, which are more protective of public health, in favor of industry.
Tell her it is unacceptable that the EPA seems to be keeping from public scrutiny parts of the Protective Action Guide (PAG), such as all radionuclide levels allowed by the guide; and not providing complete documents on which the PAG is based.

Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA would base childhood exposure levels on a report from a group that takes money from industry lobbyists.

If you also wish to comment on these so-called Protective Action Guides, the DEADLINE for comments is July 25, 2016. Beyond Nuclear will be making detailed comments on EPA’s proposed levels.

Arkansas Mom Exposes Common Core For The Nightmare It Is

This “Common Core” balderdash may be the coup de gras of the American experiment. The government just forced idiocy down the throats of a generation, while the rest of the world actually learns useful information. Such a grotesque betrayal of a nation is seldom seen. Someone with some sense is usually found somewhere in the chain? Right?

Will USA’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission allow the nuclear lobby to set radiation standards?

Be afraid…

If adopted, this would permit all current radioactive releases, leaks, and ongoing emissions from nuclear power plants, and decrease evacuation zones, as well as allow Fukushima, Chernobyl, WIPP (New Mexico nuclear waste disposal site), Hanford, Oak Ridge, Nevada and Alaska test sites, Santa Susanna, Farallons nuclear waste dump, depleted uranium, nuclear weapons, and other international emissions, as long as the government deems them to be “low level”, to impact Americans under the fantasy of a hormesis effect.

Orwell never went this far:

The radiation hormesis model provides that exposure of the human body to low levels of ionizing radiation is beneficial…

The radiation is good for you lie is actually a real proposal that you can argue against here:

Linear No-Threshold Model and Standards for Protection Against Radiation

The Linear No-Threshold model is what the National Academy of Sciences of the US has determined is reality. There is no “safe dose” of radiation. This fictional “homesis” gibberish is like Scientology. It is a fraud, a crime.

“[T]the U.S., and to a lesser degree Russia, object to costly safety upgrades. The U.S. claims its nuclear safety controls are adequate despite the continued operation here of 22 identical Fukushima-design reactors.”

U.S. leads opposition to strengthening post-Fukushima international safety standards

Right now former Monsanto super lobbyist Michael Taylor has crafted new food safety rules at the FDA that could drive tens of thousands of America’s small, local and organic family farmers out of business.
