|Splitting more than hairs|
Helen Caldicott is a key self-proclaimed leader of the anti-nuclear movement. Never one to let facts get in the way of emotion, she has been relying on a medical degree and misinformation to spread radiophobia since the 1970s. Whether it's claiming millions of deaths from the Chernobyl Disaster or raving about a WHO-IAEA conspiracy, she will be there, trying to get her picture on TV while attempting to name-drop her way to credibility. She could be seen as a living example of the Dunning-Kruger effect in action. She advocates for "lighting with candles instead of lightbulbs, in the effort of reducting energy consumption."
