Moore> The UN says there may be as many as 4,000 premature deaths in the future,
Moore> based on the most liberal extrapolation.

RC> A bald-faced lie. The UN report actually estimated between 4,000 and 9,000.
RC> Therefore, it could not have been the most "liberal" extrapolation which
RC> yielded the 4,000 number.

Moore> Greenpeace has no evidence for their claim.

RC> It does not look like they have "no evidence" to me.
RC> In other words, you have lied in my face. Either that, or spoken from a
RC> deep and unquestioned ignorance.

RC> And the sad part is, I believe in the future of nuclear power.

Moore> The World Health Organization and the UN Environment Program were among the
Moore> eight UN agencies involved in the 20 year study of Chernobyl.
