Irony and Tragedy in the Olympics


A group of Australian researchers have concluded that among Olympic athletes, tennis players are particularly vulnerable to UV sun damage and therefore recommends strongly that athletes wear sunscreen at the 2020 Olympics, to be held in Japan with many events located not too far from Fukushma Daiichi:

The irony and the tragedy is that the sun is not the only source of untoward radiation that Olympians will contend with, however unknowingly, as argued by Koide Hiroaki below:

    1. US harassment of nuclear scientists, nuclear plant workers and grassroots anti-nuclear activists

      International Journal of Humanities and Peace 17 (1), 80-85, 2001
      What finally triggered the writing et this article was a recent e-mail form a librarian friend residing in Denver. The e-mail related to an article by Frank Munger (June 21, 1999) on the death and life of Karl Z. Morgan, former Director of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). The Munger article laments the recent death of Morgan and the fact that Munger had never published anything on an interesting 1993 interview he had done with Morgan. Morgan was the acknowledged" father" of health physics, the science of radiation protection, and he was the first President of the Health Physics Society. After retiring from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Morgan often found himself on the opposite side of the nuclear establishment. This was due to the fact that the scientist had turned against nuclear power because he thought the reactor designs were not sufficiently safe.
      In 1971, Morgan, who had been Director of Health Physics at Oak Ridge for nearly thirty years, was en route to Nuremburg to present a paper that questioned the safety of both plutonium and breeder reactors. He was contacted in Switzerland by Oak Ridge officials who told him that the section of his paper on the liquid metal, fast-breeder reactor was unsuitable for publication and that he should not present that version of the paper (Munger, June 21, 1999). Oak Ridge officials also arranged to have over 500 copies of the original paper destroyed and replaced with edited versions that deleted all references to the breeder reactor. Morgan, nearing retirement, argued with the associate director of the lab for awhile, but finally gave in when he realized that he might lose his entire pension in the last few months on the job. It is clear in the 1993 Munger interview with Morgan that the scientist was still agonizing over the Nuremburg incident and whether or not he did the right thing:

Maybe I should have just bitten the bullet and of lost out on that (retirement money)... that normally isn't the primary motivation of my life. Having read the Munger (June 21, 1999) article on Morgan's experience with ORNL, led me to recall other incidents involving the harassment of nuclear scientists, nuclear workers, and anti-nuclear activists, both in published accounts and in my own interviews of" environmental heroes"(Harden, 1997). And, in recollecting C. Wright Mills'(1959) contentions about the ascendancy of the military as America's most powerful institution, I began to wonder what an analysis of the lives of various other nuclear scientists and nuclear whistle-blowers might reveal. I further reasoned that social scientists should be looking for patterns of experience, linkages in behavior, and other generalizations that might characterize the lives of those connected to the nuclear (electric) and weapons cycles. The plan for the rest of the present study was to attempt to discover the underlying nature of...
