Rhodi Lee, Tech Times - Air pollution is a serious challenge facing the developing world. Previously, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom faced air pollution to the same degree. It is estimated that air pollution kills 5.5 million per year. Using cleaner fuels, air pollution control technologies and nuclear power are the best ways of solving this menace.
The Reliable Supply of Mo-99 - A Decaying Ideal? (World Council on Isotopes, Don Robertson) South Africa08.Feb.2016
Don Robertson is the retired Managing Director of NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd of South Africa. This article is very important because it gives a summary of the worldwide problems facing the production of the the radioisotope, Mo-99. This isotope is the workhorse of diagnostic nuclear medicine, used in approximately 80,000 Tc-99m scans per day. A variety of policies and regulations result in restricting full cost recovery for producers of this vital radioisotope. For all newsletters, see website: http://wci-ici.org/
CFACT, Patrick Moore, Ph.D. Ecology, Co-Founder of Greenpeace: There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years. If there were such a proof it would be written down for all to see. No actual proof, as it is understood in science, exists.

Alan Waltar, Author of "radiation and Modern Life: Fulfilling Marie Curie's Dream" and James Katzaroff, CEO of Advanced Medical Isotopes Corp., World Council on Isotopes. By 2004, two-thirds of the elements in the Periodic Table had produced at least one commercially utilized radioisotope: 63 for medicine, 27 for industry, 31 for environmental protection. For nuclear medicine, 10% of the radioisotopes were used in therapy and 90% in diagnostics. This report examines the progress in the last ten years.
