A friend whose Twitter handle is @ActinideAge just posted a link to Gerry Thomas Highlights Misconceptions over Health Impacts of Nuclear Accidents. (Embedded below.)
Even though it was published in November 2014 on the UN University YouTube channel, it had received a grand total of 189 views at the time I visited on April 6, 2015.
It’s more than a little ironic that a reasonably well-produced video from a large international organization featuring one of the world’s experts on radiation communicating the risks of radiation has received so little promotion that virtually no one has watched it.
Please share this with as many people as you can; let’s see if grassroots efforts can help the UN actually spread this important message.
Update: (April 6, 2015 1200) After seeing a tweet related to the above post, another follower shared a link to a more in depth discussion of communicating radiation health effects Gerry Thomas & Andrew Sherry: “Nuclear Risk Communication Four Years After Fukushima”.
The audience for the above talk is the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan; they had about 45 minutes for questions and answers.
