*Who the Hell is Helen Caldicott, M.D.?

Dooming Dartmouth

I just watched Helen Caldicott, M.D. (on a Public Access TV rerun)  address a Dartmouth College audience (March, 2010)
in which she said "I came to Vermont to shut down Vermont Yankee [Nuclear Power Plant]."  

She claimed  that a radiation leak from that plant sent upwind toward Hanover would "end Dartmouth."

This 71 -year-old whirlwind of activism and brilliance is highly persuasive. How come I never heard of her until today?

Read, listen, and and learn (below):

"You are the planet's Intensive Care Unit."
Helen Caldicott, M.D.

Which channel? And... You did contact the channel and let them know you appreciated the show, right?
