SARI - The nuclear reactor accident at Fukushima Daiichi that followed the earthquake and tsunami in 2011 prompted well-intended measures that have had disastrous consequences.

Wade Allison - Much is known of the biological impact of radiation on life. Like sunshine, low levels of radiation can be beneficial and only very high levels in acute exposures can cause death or cancer. Only the extremely conservative advice from ICRP continues to support ALARA as a basis for nuclear safety. This influence, however discredited, still entrenches the bureaucratic structure of radiation protection today. Current “safety” standards are unfounded in science.

Wade Allison - Radiation and Reason. A list of the pros and cons of nuclear energy is straightforward; we need it, it is safe, but people are frightened of it. But the need to replace fossil fuels with another large base-load source is widely understood and its safety has been demonstrated many times.

Wade Allison - Radiation and Reason. Radiation is not a big threat to mankind, unlike socio-economic stability, population, water and food supplies. Everywhere, new fresh education is needed to explain radiation to more people in simple terms to remove the stigma.
