To say that the Earth is a human planet becomes truer every day. Humans are made from the Earth, and the Earth is remade by human hands. Many earth scientists express this by stating that the Earth has entered a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene, the Age of Humans.
As scholars, scientists, campaigners, and citizens, we write with the conviction that knowledge and technology, applied with wisdom, might allow for a good, or even great, Anthropocene. A good Anthropocene demands that humans use their growing social, economic, and technological powers to make life better for people, stabilize the climate, and protect the natural world.

SARI, Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information, says that there is no reason to fear low-dose radiation. They explain that the LNT model is a problem, why it was adopted, why it persists, and how it can be overcome.
The LNT model is probably the most egregious error ever made in the name of science, considering the long period over which it has been used worldwide in spite of there being no valid evidence for it and in spite of the casualties and calamities its use has caused.
Daniel Meneley's summary of fossil fuel and nuclear energy sources for generating electricity for world needs is very succinct and complete.
