Radioactive Heaven and Earth

The health and environmental effects of nuclear weapons testing in, on, and above the earth.

ISBN-10: 0945257341 | ISBN-13: 978-0945257349

A formal report from the International Commission of Physicians and Environmentalists to Investigate the Health and Environmental Consequences of Nuclear Weapons Production. A project of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), the recipient of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize.

The team of authors carefully assesses and meticulously documents all aspects of health and environmental issues related to nuclear testing, taking care to provide technical analyses of data including margins of error, methodologies for study and accounting for discrepancies compared to previous estimates。

After firmly establishing the basis for determining the validity of their findings, they proceed with in-depth assessments of the effects of nuclear testing, breaking out specific results of:

  • U.S. Testing in North America
  • U.S. Testing in the Pacific
  • Soviet Union Testing
  • British Testing in Australia
  • British and U.S. testing at Christmas Island
  • French Testing
  • Testing in China, India and other countries

Conclusions: Although arrival at final figures was exceedingly difficult, resulting in sizable margins of error, conservative estimates of deaths caused by worldwide nuclear testing amount to between 2,400,000 – 61,600,000 deaths worldwide. The variance of an order of magnitude is due to cumulative margins of error and standard deviation. Again, these figures are conservative.

大发体育 Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer

Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer by Dr. Helen Caldicott

[Publisher: The New Press (2006); ISBN: 978-1-59558-067-2 | Melbourne University Press (2006): ISBN 0522-85251-3]

A long time advocate of abandoning the nuclear arms race, Dr. Helen Caldicott turns her attention to busting the myths regarding the so-called peaceful uses of atomic energy for power generation. Bringing a physician’s care and attention to bear on the real economic and health costs of nuclear power, she shows how it is not a truly viable option.

Starting with an examination of the “carbon footprint” of nuclear energy, she shows how enormous the mining and manufacturing costs associated with nuclear energy truly are. Far from being “clean energy” nuclear power is shown to be  among the dirtiest of options.

Dr。 Caldicott then examines the health impacts associated with nuclear power and reveals real death and disease consequences which nuclear industry “experts” continually downplay at the expense of public health。 (Children near to nuclear power plants develop leukemia as a matter of course)。

Finally she shows that problems with waste disposal and security pose an ever-growing threat to every living thing on the planet.

Nearly a quarter century after the nuclear accident at Chernobyl, three noted scientists sought to correct assessments which under-reported the consequences of the disaster.

Dr. Alexey Nesterenko (A biologist and ecologist in Belarus)
Dr. Vassili Nesterenko, (A physicist and director of the Institute of Nuclear Energy of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus at the time of the accident)
Dr. Alexey Yablokov (Former Russian presidential advisor)

They compiled all the available research and provide an uprecedented, comprehensively documented examination of both the health and environmental effects of the low dose radioactive contaminants emitted from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power plant.

They point out errors in methodology, omitted results and gaps in understanding which led to inaccurate assesments on the part of the International Atomic Energy Agency. They show that the effects of Chernobyl are far-reaching and far exceed the previous assessment of 4,000 fatalities. Instead they show the place the number of casualties occurring between 1986 and 2004 at 985,000 (mainly from cancer) and growing.

The team shows proof of worldwide contamination from the 1986 explosion saying emissions were, “hundreds of millions of curies, a quantity hundreds of times larger than the fallout from the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”

Their chapter on public health consequences examines methodology, disability, rapid aging, non-malignant and oncological diseases as well as mortality. Their chapter on the environment covers air, water and soil contamination and the impact of radioactivity on plants, animals and microbes.

The final chapter takes up the issue of how to protect food and people, reduce contaminants, take protective measures and public health recommendations。
