Dr Gavin Wallace, QSM
Nuclear NZ
The legal status of this country being 'nuclear-free' conveys a very false impression to New Zealanders. In fact, we were  early adopters of radiation, and had a major influence in uncovering and developing this field of science. New Zealand continues to make beneficial use of nuclear applications in many areas. We live in a radioactive world, not that most are aware of it.
The speaker, Dr Gavin Wallace, has had over 50 years experience in this field, and will bust the myths implied by being 'nuclear-free'. Fear of radiation can, and does, cause unnecessary concern, and irrational decisions to be made. A current example is a failure to consider the nuclear power option to combat global warming.
