Helen Caldicott is one of the most informed people on the matter of nuclear power and its dangers. We might also consult Dr. Vandana Shiva on the hazards of Western white male supremacist science generally. Why it is this white man, George Monbiot, thinks he can debate Dr. Caldicott and sound at all reasonable, intelligent, compassionate, or humane is beyond me. Yet, he does go on and on as if he has something important and "experty" to say.

Using radioactive isotopes like iodine, cesium, uranium, and plutonium to heat water and make energy (or to 'win' war) has to be one of the most stupid and inhumane ideas-in-practice in the entire history of White Man's science and culture--and there are a lot of contenders for the most stupid and inhumane ideas-in-practice. That some white men defend other white men's use of these ideas-in-practice only shows that white men have each other's backs even when white men are stupid and inhumane--perhaps ESPECIALLY when white men are stupid and inhumane.
Goddess help us all and save us from these men who actually believe wars can be "just", nuclear power can be "safe", and capitalism and patriarchy and can be moral or humane.
