From the Feb. 21, 2012 Eco-Logic news section:
Every nuclear power plant emits radioactive gases every day that it operates.
The magazine The Ecologist reports two more studies linking nuclear
power plants and childhood leukemia increases, these from France and Germany. The French study,
conducted by the Institut de Radioprotectio n et de Surete Nucleaire (INSERM) and reported in the
International Journal on Cancer
in January 2012, looked at child leukaemia cases nationwide diagnosed between 2002 and 2007,
with addresses coded around 19 nuclear power plants. It demonstrated a stastically signficant
doubling of the incidence of leukaemia childhood near nuclear power plants.
The French study confirms an earlier German study,
known as the KiKK, which found a doubling of the incidence of child leukaemia near nuclear
power plants, and an increased risk of 60 per cent for all childhood cancers. The KiKK f
indings were confirmed by the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection. You may hear
on commercial media that there is no connection because of a recent study in the UK.
While every study showing a connection between cancer and nuclear power has been confirmed
and re-confirmed, including the ones in Westchester County, NY, that UK study has not been
verified by any other study.

The Feb. 15th issue of the online magazine
has a detailed article on who is funding the climate change deniars
From the Dec. 14, 2010 Eco-Logic news section:
From the Neighborhood Energy Network comes this
information. A report from the National Research Council examines and estimates hidden
costs of energy production and use that are not reflected in market prices of coal, oil,
other energy sources, or the electricity and gasoline produced from them, such as the damage
air pollution imposes on human health. The report estimates dollar values for several major
components of these costs. The committee was able to quantify an estimated $120 billion in
the U.S., a number that reflects primarily health damages from air pollution associated with
electricity generation and motor vehicle transportation. The figure does not include damages
from climate change, harm to ecosystems, effects of some air pollutants such as mercury, and
risks to national security, which the report examines but does not monetize. To read the
entire report, go to
Heatisonline.org has an article that the Tea Party and other Climate Change Deniers are
funded by BP and other Major Polluters. To read the article, go to
