Joseph J. Mangano, MPH, MBA Biography

Title:
Executive Director of the Radiation and Public Health Project
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“Supporters see nuclear power as an important way to reduce dependency on coal for electricity…But a coal-for-nukes swap may represent nothing more than replacing one environmental hazard with another…

Replacing coal to limit global warming should not be based on another toxic product. Instead, it should feature conservation, more efficient products, and safe renewable forms of energy such as wind, solar, and geothermal power to protect public health.”
