An independent scientist’s observations on society, technology, energy, science and the environment. “Modern science has been a voyage into the unknown, with a lesson in humility waiting at every stop. Many passengers would rather have stayed home.” – Carl Sagan

Anti-nuclear quote of the week.

“Every year Areva, the French conglomerate that handles reprocessing, dumps so much radioactive liquid into the Channel that, says Lochbaum of the Union of Concerned Scientists, “there are certain beaches where the effluent pipe is where you can get a suntan at night.””

[source]

What absolutely laughable, ridiculous nonsense. Hell, even Caldicott probably wouldn’t be that stupid. Lochbaum does know what a suntan is, and what causes it, right?

  3. Lochbaum is a fraud. His blatant manipulation of the truth and in some cases outright lying is a mockery of science.

    He and his ridiculous UCS organization make every attempt to stiffle debate as they regularly delete my comments on their website.

    Pronuclear bloggers have no such fear of debate. After all, we enjoy exposing Lochbaum and his ilk for the hysterical fantics they are.
