Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

scientific literature is a lie because it doesn't agree with the Greenpeace Party line.

Everybody who has an agenda likes to deny the scientific results.   Exxon-Mobile does it and so does Greenpeace.   Both are distorting reality.

The UNSCEAR report is available on line and has many thousands of references - almost all of them from reputable scientific journals around the world.

The Greenpeace argument about Chernobyl is anecdotal, poorly supported and frankly, if not exploitive, silly.  It is well represented by the diary you link, which is spectacular only for its rhetoric and poor comprehension of the issues.   Basically it is an attempt to substitute a conspiracy theory for a body of widely collected data.

I could post a picture of an amputee and claim he was injured in a coal mine collapse or an oil refinery explosion.  

I could post heart rending pictures of children wallowing in coal dust, or fleeing droughts that may be related to climate change.   However, I won't.  I will continue to write just as I have.

I'm sorry to hear you feel that way.  DoDo and DeAnander are 2 of our best front page contributors.  They are certainly not shills for Greenpeace, interested in exploiting anyone or promoting unfounded "conspiracy" theories.

I have not suggested you should not "write as you have." I simply wanted to show something to a commenter.  I'm glad you took the time to read it as well, and I hope you continue to contribute.  In the future I hope you can read DoDo's and De's work with a more open mind, or at least critique it without resorting to the same "rhetoric" you ostensibly have no patience for...

In the diary linked by poemless, I wrote a 2676-word review of a 76-page review by two NGOs (neither of which was Greenpeace) of mostly published scientific research on Chernobyl. You respond by six paragraphs of pure rhetoric (as bad as you accuse Greenpeace of, as poemless sez) that is also a total non-sequitur.

After this, it should surprise no one that I don't bother to comment your diaries.
