Dr. James Conca, RJ Lee Group Expert, Writes Forbes Editorial Arguing “Fukushima Refugees Are Victims Of Irrational Fear, Not Radiation”

RJ Lee Group News

March 26, 2012

(MONROEVILLE, Pa., March 26, 2012) Dr. James Conca, Director of the Center for Laboratory Science at RJ Lee Group, Inc., and an international expert on the environmental effects of radiation, recently published an editorial in Forbes online entitled “Fukushima’s Refugees Are Victims Of Irrational Fear, Not Radiation.”  Roughly a week after publishing the first piece, Dr. Conca followed up with another Forbes editorial in response to many of the comments left by readers of the original piece.

In Dr. Conca’s initial article, he argues that the Fukushima radiation is relatively inconsequential, and that Japanese cancer rates are not going to increase due to exposure to the radiation.  Dr. Conca argues against the Linear No-Threshold hypothesis (LNT), pointing out that every day humans are exposed to radiation, but we know that our exposure to radiation is not unsafe.  The editorial garnered nearly 6,000 views and 40 comments on the Forbes website.  Dr. Conca followed up with a response to some of the comments on his original piece, focusing on further disagreeing with the merits of the Linear No-Threshold hypothesis and reinforcing his belief that the Fukushima refugees are only victims of fear, not radiation.

Dr. Conca has actively developed and tested laboratory and field technologies for disposal of radioactive waste, mitigation of dirty bomb effects, and remediation of metal contamination in groundwater and soil.  Prior to joining RJ Lee Group, he served as the Senior Scientist for the Institute for Energy and the Environment at New Mexico State University (NMSU).  Dr. Conca has published extensively in peer-reviewed literature and is co-author of the book The GeoPolitics of Energy: Achieving a Just and Sustainable Energy Distribution by 2040.
