Did everyone notice: James affirms that attacks against your employment are appropriate?  
He dressed it up in a pretty post, but he really says that ANYONE who voices disagreement 
with him is fair game.  In other words, his cause is so worthwhile, so noble, that mere 
humans can not be allowed to hinder it.  Where does he draw the line?  If he is low enough to 
do that, would he hesitate to twist or falsify his information?

Having already considered both sides of this tired debate, over and over ad nauseam, I see 
no further reason to lend credence to any statement he might make.  It is enough to say that 
his claims have been thoroughly debunked, and the radsafe archives are available for 
anyone who doubts that.

I would like to know what RadSafe list members think the expected
behavior and correct course of action should be when we see someone
acting as an expert in a professional capacity making statements about
serious health risks which are at wide variance with the secondary
peer reviewed medical literature.

My disagreement with Gary Isenhower concerned these sources about the
incidence of cancer rates in uranium miners:

Gary denied that such information had been suppressed in the Health
Physics Society literature about the toxicity of uranium.  I've
checked; the literature reviews agree with those sources, and there
aren't any peer reviewed reports that disagree with them.  Here are
the HPS sources people are likely to find when searching the HPS web
site on information about the health effects of uranium:

http://hps.org/publicinformation/ate/q754.html - by Dr. Raabe

http://hps.org/publicinformation/ate/q2590.html - by Dr. Kathren

What is the correct and proper course of action in this case?

Why do nuclear power proponents not accurately represent the
scientific literature on this topic, which is far more pertinent to
coal ash contamination than it is to any part of the nuclear fuel
chain, except perhaps the use of depleted uranium as pyrophoric
incendiary munitions?
