Lynn Ehrle promotes “Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment”

Lynn Ehrle, of the International Science Oversight Board of the Organic Consumers Association, was the kickoff speaker at the International Roundtable on “Nuclear Threats to the Great Lakes and Transition to Clean Safe Energy” on May 14, 2011, in Dearborn, Michigan. He focused on the human health risks of exposure to so-called “low dose” ionizing radiation, such as what blanketed the entire Northern Hemisphere (including North America) in the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe. The book distills thousands of Russian, Ukrainian, and Belarussian scientific studies on the health and ecological impacts of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe. One of the book’s findings: as many as 985,000 people may have died from their exposure to Chernobyl’s radioactive fallout, just between the years 1986 to 2004. View his presentation here.
