Stacking the Deck – promoting arguments that favor only one side

NRC is trying to do it again !

First, let me introduce the following :


More Childhood Cancer Near Nuclear Power Plants

Children living near nuclear power stations are more likely to suffer leukemia than those living farther away, a report funded by the German government has found, according to German media.


"Our study confirmed that in Germany a connection has been observed between the distance of a domicile to the nearest nuclear power plant ... and the risk of developing cancer, such as leukemia, before the fifth birthday," the daily Süddeutsche Zeitung quoted the report as saying.,,2994904,00.html

Germany is not alone


Forced by overwhelming evidence here and abroad the Nuclear

 Regulatory Commission is proposing.. finally.. to form a commission to study the Health effect around nuclear power plants in this county.


But, they are up to the same tricks. Here is how ! Stack the Board ! See the credentials of Dr, Richard Meserve. ! ‘nuf said !!!


Ex-NRC chair should be removed from reactor cancer study board


The National Academy of Sciences held a meeting on April 26  to decide whether to accept a study charge from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to investigate cancer risks around nuclear facilities.  Beyond Nuclear and other groups have identified and communicated significant potential for conflicts of interest.

The time is long overdue for bona fide and impartial studies investigating health impacts of constant radioactive releases (planned and accidental) from nuclear facilities. 

Toward that goal, Beyond Nuclear has requested that the National Academies of Science (NAS) conduct a review for conflict of interest on Dr. Richard Meserve who currently chairs the NAS Nuclear and Radiation Study Board.

Beyond Nuclear notes that Dr. Meserve also currently serves as Senior to Counsel of DC law firm catering to nuclear industry interests, on the Boards of Directors for two nuclear power companies headquartered in Texas and California, as a member of the Board of Advisors to the French-US nuclear conglomerate looking to construct new reactors in the United States and also recently contributed to a Congressional lobbying effort by the nuclear industry which used a special advertising supplement in the Washington Post asking for increased federal loans for new reactor construction.
