Scam Number Thirty-Nine
SCAM NUMBER THIRTY-NINE:
Use the risk factors to structure the perception of the health consequences ofa radiation release.In Edgar Allan Poe’s short story,
The Masque ofthe Red Death
, all the influential peo-ple ofa country assemble for a masquerade ball in the castle ofa nobleman. Outside, aplague is ravaging the less fortunate population. Secure in their presumption that they areimmune to the tribulations taking place beyond their walls, all are horrified to discoverwhen they remove their masks, that Death has been an uninvited guest within their midstthroughout the entire gathering. This, their final realization, marks the moment oftheirdemise.For purposes ofthis discussion, we must ask what costume, today, is Death wearing?

The Most Heinous Crime in History

Death is disguised by the risk factors published by the radiation protection agencies. We failto recognize Death in our midst because it is so craftily concealed.Before this discussion proceeds, a single point needs to be hammered home. Whenestimates are manufactured for the number ofpeople injured by nuclear weapon testing,how are the figures computed? On the basis ofthe risk factors! When a radiation acci-dent takes place, what is used to determine the likelihood ofillness to those dwelling down-wind? The risk factors! Before commercial nuclear power plants are licensed, what crite-ria are used to determine the amount ofradionuclides that can be legally discharged andthe likely health effects ofthese to the surrounding population? The risk factors! For peo-ple employed in the nuclear industry, how is potential hazard to their health estimated?The risk factors! When modeling different accident scenarios at radioactive waste reposi-tories, how is health detriment ofthose potentially exposed determined? The risk factors!When computing the possible hazards ofa breach ofcontainment accident during trans-port ofradioactive materials along highways or railroad lines, how are possible casualty fig-ures derived? The risk factors! On what basis is the hazard to health estimated from incor-porating low-level waste into consumer products? The risk factors! When cancer patientsreceive radiation therapy, how are their chances for another cancer being induced by theirtherapeutic dose ofradiation calculated? The risk factors! How are hazards to our owntroops or enemy civilians evaluated when designing and deploying uranium weapons? Therisk factors! When estimating collateral injury to the surrounding population from the pro-posed deployment ofnuclear bunker-buster bombs, what information is necessary for suchcalculations? The risk factors! How are the number ofradiation deaths produced in the varying scenarios ofnuclear war fighting during World War III determined? The risk fac-tors! The risk factors legitimize the entire nuclear enterprise. Human beings tolerate tech-nologies that cause radiation exposure solely on the basis oftheir beliefthat this exposurerepresents minimal risk.Scam Number Thirty-Nine is the preeminent scam, the reason for being ofall theother scams. It lies at the heart ofall the mischiefthat has infiltrated and corrupted thescience ofradiation protection. By the elaborate swindle deconstructed within these pages,the Cult ofNuclearists has fabricated inaccurate risk factors and then used these inventionsto veil its misdeeds before the public. To fully appreciate the insidious role played by therisk factors in blinding humanity to true radiation effects across populations, one must geta feel for the profound indeterminacy that accompanies a radiation release. Due to thenature ofthe phenomenon, the impact ofvented radioactivity on public health is cloudedin ambiguity. Once liberated, radioactive atoms invisibly migrate through the environmentat the whim ofever-changing meteorological and geophysical forces. From their point of origin to their ultimate abode, no one knows their fate. Extensive environmental monitor-
