031005** Doug Rokke - Silent Killer: The Hidden Legacy of Depleted Uranium

For the last fifty years we have been told that the nuclear energy industry is clean, safe and reliable. However, any truth in those claims is soon dispelled when we find out that one of the most deadly by-products of the nuclear industry is not to be found at the nuclear plants. This by-product is given the misnomer of 'depleted uranium' or DU as it's usually called, and constitutes over 99% of the waste material of the nuclear industry. Given the fact that almost a million metric tonnes of this material is lying around in nuclear storage facilities in the US, and the fact that the US military industrial complex produces some of the most deadly weapons on earth, it should be of no surprise that the two would soon meet up in the most unholy of alliances.

Doug Rokke's specialty is emergency rescue in biological and nuclear warfare. In 1991 he was recalled to active duty in the aftermath of the first Gulf War and he went on to become the head of the US government's depleted uranium project. Knowing full well the dangers of DU, by the late 1990's Doug could no longer stay within a system that would not ban its use, even though the adverse medical effects were well known to those giving the orders for its use. Doug spoke out against his employer, the US government, and has borne the consequences ever since. He spoke to Alternative Radio's Shane Elson by phone just prior to his first public lecture in Melbourne.
