Presented by: Robert Hayes, Ph.D.

This webinar will examine the various antinuclear claims that appeal to extreme radiological risk. The presentation will start with a review of radiation risk and ALARA. The social myths will include false narratives associated with Three Mile Island, Fukushima, and Chernobyl, along with the potential for terrorist threats and nuclear waste. Also included will be the linear, no-threshold hypothesis and new construction issues. Much of the presentation will be based on the author’s own research but will include research from other scholars on the topic.
