      And the vendors, the sellers of the nuclear plants, were very, very reassuring: Westinghouse, General Electric. And it was only when the Union of Concerned Scientists, a new scientific group, formed in Cambridge, Massachusetts, began to really dig into this that we started to get more information. The Controversy Manual is designed for participants in scientific controversies — climate change, nuclear power, genetic engineering, vaccination, or whatever. The book is intended to be practical, offering ideas for engaging in debate. Others, including citizens, journalists and students.

      The greatest achievement of this book, however, is to give the marginalized women and citizen scientists a voice outside of Japan.". — Cornelia Reiher, Pacific Affairs. “For those unfamiliar with Japan, Radiation Brain Moms gives an extensive historical memory of Japan and its complex relationship to nuclear power. In October , PG&E halted construction. This decision influenced the growing controversy in Malibu, California, where the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power had proposed to build a nuclear power plant. Following a similar string of events, the Malibu plant was cancelled as well.

      Concerned about the possibility that the Japanese government’s opposition might have an adverse influence on the U.S. administration’s possible nuclear policy change, we, the Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center, together with the Japan National Congress against A- and H-Bombs (Gensuikin Congress) and the author of the website Kakujoho (Nuclear Information), sent a written proposal to.

Citizens across world oppose nuclear power, poll finds The debate over nuclear energy is fiendishly complex, but one important factor is public opinion, and people in.

However, nuclear power cannot rescue us from climate change. The vast majority of public interest and environmental groups are adamantly opposed to nuclear power. Over national, state, and local organizations have endorsed a statement clearly outlining why nuclear power.

Professor Del Sesto views these events in terms of three themes: federal regulation of advanced technology, the gradual entrance of more diverse interest groups into the political arena.

She has focused on the dynamics of controversy, the role of citizen's groups, the press, and governmental or legal authorities in most of her studies. Nelkin was involved personally in a science-related social controversy, when a power company proposed building a nuclear power.

Antinuclear movement, social movement opposed to the production of nuclear weapons and the generation of electricity by nuclear power plants. The goals and ideologies of the antinuclear movement range from an emphasis on peace and environmentalism to intellectual social activism based on knowledge of nuclear technology and to political and moral activism based on conflicts between nuclear.

Nuclear energy is among the type of energy countries have considered including in their electricity generation mix despite its controversy. This is so due to its reliability as a low carbon. Risks believed by some individuals and groups to be tolerable or accept­ able - such as the risks of nuclear power or industrial pollutants - are intolerable and unacceptable to others.

This book addresses this issue by exploring how particular technological risks come to.
