Dr. Ian Fairlie joins Dr. Caldicott on the program in this interview recorded in July, a few months after the Fukushima accident. Dr. Fairlie is a radiobiologist from Great Britain. He works as an independent consultant in the field of radioactivity in the environment and advises environmental organizations, the European Parliament as well as local and national authorities in several countries. Dr. Fairlie studied chemistry at the University of Western Ontario in Canada and radiobiology at Barts Medical College in London. He wrote his doctorate on the effects of radioactive contamination in the vicinity of Sellafield and La Hague. Dr. Fairlie lives in London and published the Torch Report - The Other Report on Chernobyl, commissioned by the European Greens in 2006. His area of expertise is the dosimetric impacts of nuclear reactor emissions. He has written extensively on epidemiology studies of child leukemias near nuclear facilities, and the hazards of tritium. A few of the topics Dr. Caldicott and Dr. Fairlie address are the ongoing criticality at the Fukushima reactors, the internal emitters being released from the accident site, hot spots in Europe and the northern hemisphere from the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown and now Fukushima, and the continued push for nuclear power around the world despite Fukushima.
