Lobbying Lobbying Lobbying What You Should Know as a Federal Employee, Contractor, Cooperative Agreement Participant, or Grantee Various Federal statutes and regulations prohibit "lobbying" by federal employees, as well as federal contractors, cooperative agreement participants, and grantees. Although the definition of "lobbying" differs within each statute or regulation, the restrictions generally prohibit contacting or encouraging others to contact a state or federal legislator or executive branch official in an attempt to influence the enactment or modification of legislation or other specified activities. The following discussion provides general guidelines that should help identify the various statutory and regulatory lobbying restrictions. For more detailed

Successful so far, coal lobby's campaign may run out of steam  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The anti-coal lobby has mounted a highly successful campaign that has brought the permitting, financing, and construction of new conventional coal-fired plants to a virtual halt. But the coal lobby is not yet ready to concede defeat. With powerful constituents in coal-mining and coal-burning states and influential utilities, mining companies, and railroads, it continues to fight for its survival using any and all gimmicks and scare tactics in the book. The battle is being waged in courtrooms, public forums, media campaigns, and especially in Congress. The problem with the coal lobby is that it refuses to admit that coal combustion to generate electricity is among the chief sources of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions; unless they address this issue honestly, effectively, and immediately, their efforts are going to win few converts in the courts of law or public opinion.

Mobile autonomous robotic apparatus for radiologic characterization  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A mobile robotic system that conducts radiological surveys to map alpha, beta, and gamma radiation on surfaces in relatively level open areas or areas containing obstacles such as stored containers or hallways, equipment, walls and support columns. The invention incorporates improved radiation monitoring methods using multiple scintillation detectors, the use of laser scanners for maneuvering in open areas, ultrasound pulse generators and receptors for collision avoidance in limited space areas or hallways, methods to trigger visible alarms when radiation is detected, and methods to transmit location data for real-time reporting and mapping of radiation locations on computer monitors at a host station. A multitude of high performance scintillation detectors detect radiation while the on-board system controls the direction and speed of the robot due to pre-programmed paths. The operators may revise the preselected movements of the robotic system by ethernet communications to remonitor areas of radiation or to avoid walls, columns, equipment, or containers. The robotic system is capable of floor survey speeds of from 1/2-inch per second up to about 30 inches per second, while the on-board processor collects, stores, and transmits information for real-time mapping of radiation intensity and the locations of the radiation for real-time display on computer monitors at a central command console.

Can Big Pharma Behavior Change to Benefit Patients?  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Professors Rosenberg and Chu will discuss how the behavior of large pharmaceutical companies can sometimes compromise the needs of patients. The behavior includes strategies for lobbying Congress, exploiting patent law, targeting large consumer markets, creating demand from patients, and influencing physicians. In some cases, this behavior has created ethical and legal problems. The talk will conclude with a discussion of possible ways to encourage changes that will benefit patients.

Public relations tactics and methods in early 1800s America: An examination of an American anti-slavery movement  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Traditional public relations histories begin in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This study expands public relations history to the early 1800s by analyzing the use of public relations methods and tactics in an American anti-slavery movement, The American Colonization Society. In focusing on the American Colonization Society and backlash against it from abolitionist groups, this paper finds the use of newspapers to promote a cause, promotion of high profile endorsements, attempts to persuade a key public, creation of publications, efforts to lobby legislatures, and hired agents to found auxiliaries, all beginning in the early 1800s.

Revealing Occupancy Patterns in Office Buildings Through the use of Annual Occupancy Sensor Data  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Energy simulation programs like DOE-2 and EnergyPlus are tools that have been proven to aid with energy calculations to predict energy use in buildings. Some inputs to energy simulation models are relatively easy to find, including building size, orientation, construction materials, and HVAC system size and type. Others vary with time (e.g. weather and occupancy) and some can be a challenge to estimate in order to create an accurate simulation. In this paper, the analysis of occupancy sensor data for a large commercial, multi-tenant office building is presented. It details occupancy diversity factors for private offices and summarizes the same for open offices, hallways, conference rooms, break rooms, and restrooms in order to better inform energy simulation parameters. Long-term data were collected allowing results to be presented to show variations of occupancy diversity factors in private offices for time of day, day of the week, holidays, and month of the year. The diversity factors presented differ as much as 46% from those currently published in ASHRAE 90.1 2004 energy cost method guidelines, a document referenced by energy modelers regarding occupancy diversity factors for simulations. This may result in misleading simulation results and may introduce inefficiencies in the final equipment and systems design.

Demand Control Ventilation Demand Control Ventilation 2012 IECC A demand control ventilation (DCV) system is an integral part of a building's ventilation design. It adjusts outside ventilation air based on the number of occupants and the ventilation demands that those occupants create. In most commercial occupancies, ventilation is provided to deal with two types of indoor pollution: (1) odors from people, and (2) off-gassing from building components and furniture. When a space is vacant, it has no people pollution so the people-related ventilation rate is not needed. Many types of high-occupancy spaces, such as classrooms, multipurpose rooms, theaters, conference rooms, or lobbies have ventilation designed for a high peak occupancy that rarely occurs. Ventilation can be reduced

The influence of political risk on the scope of internationalization of regulated companies: Insights from a Spanish sample  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Political risk not only constitutes a threat for multinational enterprises but can also be a source of opportunities. Exposure to and accumulated experience dealing with political risk allows firms to better implement a wide set of political actions such as negotiation of entry conditions, lobbying, litigation, campaign contributions and coalition formation, leading to preferential conditions, reduced environmental uncertainty, reduced transaction costs and increased long-term sustainability to the firm. These advantages facilitate investments in countries with higher and more diverse levels of risk and make political risk to be positively associated with the firm's scope of internationalization. This effect is not homogeneous across firms. Drawing from a sample of 164 Spanish companies with investments in 119 countries, we find that the impact is greater for companies in industrial sectors that are the object of greater governmental regulation than it is for firms in non-regulated manufacturing or service sectors, with less frequent interactions with home and host-country institutions.

Environmental assessment of the thermal neutron activation explosive detection system for concourse use at US airports  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This document is an environmental assessment of a system designed to detect the presence of explosives in checked airline baggage or cargo. The system is meant to be installed at the concourse or lobby ticketing areas of US commercial airports and uses a sealed radioactive source of californium-252 to irradiate baggage items. The major impact of the use of this system arises from direct exposure of the public to scattered or leakage radiation from the source and to induced radioactivity in baggage items. Under normal operation and the most likely accident scenarios, the environmental impacts that would be created by the proposed licensing action would not be significant. 44 refs., 19 figs., 18 tabs.

High Hats, Swiss Cheese, and Fluorescent Lighting?  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

For DOE, PNNL is conducting a competitive procurement to promote market introduction of new residential recessed downlights (also known as ''recessed cans'' or ''high hats'') that are airtight, rated for insulated ceilings, and hard-wired for CFLs. This paper discusses the potential energy savings of new high-efficiency downlights, and the results of product testing to date. Recessed downlights are the most popular residential lighting fixtures in the United States, with 21.7 million fixtures sold in 2000. An estimated 350 million are currently installed in American homes. Recessed cans are relatively inexpensive, and provide an unobtrusive, directed source of light for kitchens, hallways, and living rooms. Recessed cans are energy-intensive in three ways. First, virtually all recessed cans currently installed in the residential sector use incandescent light sources, typically reflector-type lamps drawing 65-150 watts. Second, heat from incandescent lamps adds to air-conditioning loads. Third, most installed recessed cans are not airtight, so they allow conditioned air to escape from the living area into unconditioned spaces such as attics. Addressing both lighting energy use and air leakage in recessed cans has proven challenging. Lighting energy efficiency is greatly improved by using CFLs. Air leakage can be addressed by making fixtures airtight. But when CFLs are used in an airtight recessed can, heat generated by the lamp and ballast is trapped within the fixture. Excessive heat causes reduced light output and shorter lifespan of the CFL. The procurement was designed to overcome these technical challenges and make new products available in the marketplace.

INTERIOR DUCT SYSTEM DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, AND PERFORMANCE  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

By removing air distribution and conditioning equipment from unconditioned spaces, homeowners stand to benefit substantially with respect to both energy savings and indoor air quality. Duct leakage introduces: Greater heating and cooling loads from air at extreme temperatures and humidity levels; Outside air and air from unconditioned spaces that may contain air borne contaminants, combustion gases, pollen, mold spores, and/or particles of building materials; and Higher whole-house infiltration/exfiltration rates. Exemplary studies conducted since 1990 have demonstrated the prevalence of duct leakage throughout the United States and measured energy savings of approximately 20% during both heating and cooling seasons from leakage reduction. These all dealt with duct leakage to and/or from unconditioned spaces. In the building science community, leakage within the conditioned space is generally presumed to eliminate the negative consequences of duct leakage with the exception of possibly creating pressure imbalances in the house which relates to higher infiltration and/or exfiltration. The practical challenges of isolating ducts and air handlers from unconditioned spaces require builders to construct an air-tight environment for the ducts. Florida Solar Energy Center researchers worked with four builders in Texas, North Carolina, and Florida who build a furred-down chase located either in a central hallway or at the edges of rooms as an architectural detail. Some comparison homes with duct systems in attics and crawl spaces were included in the test group of more than 20 homes. Test data reveals that all of the duct/AHU systems built inside the conditioned space had lower duct leakage to unconditioned spaces than their conventional counterparts; however, none of the homes was completely free of duct leakage to unconditioned spaces. Common problems included wiring and plumbing penetrations of the chase, failure to treat the chase as an air tight space, and misguided fresh air inlet design. Improvements were implemented by the Texas builder and retested in July. Results showed a 36% reduction in duct leakage, significant enough to warrant the builder adopting the new sealing procedure.

Assessment of energy saving potentials for protected spaces in commercial buildings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents the energy conservation improvement potentials of a protected space in a tropical building, which is subjected to various building services and safety requirements. Field measurement was conducted in this study, where the actual environmental conditions of a selected protected lobby and the major sources for space heat gain were systematically measured and studied. Besides, the energy consumption data of the building under study was also collected for energy management opportunities (EMOs) analysis. It was identified in the field assessments that the indoor thermal and visual comfort parameters were within acceptable levels. By following the recommended energy conservation schemes, it is possible to achieve a total reduction of approximately 16,000 kWh in building energy consumption annually, which provides a monetary saving of about 2,230 USD. For energy efficiency purpose, this study introduced a new method of reducing energy usage in the protected areas in buildings by taking the building safety requirements into consideration. Further savings are achievable by raising the thermostat settings during off-peak hours and replacement of the artificial lighting fixtures with the more energy efficient ones.

Recent developments: Washington focus  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Congress reconvened on January 23, but most of Washington`s January new involves the Administration. DOE sent two letters to USEC customers, awarded a contract for the independent financial review of the enrichment program, and released a plan for demonstrating AVLIS by 1992. A General Accounting Office (GAO) report investigating the impact of imports of Soviet EUP into the US was made public. Both Congress and the administration are reportedly considering a full-scope US-Soviet Agreement for Nuclear Cooperation. Finally, published reports indicate Congress may consider ending the customs user fee which levies a charge of 0.17% on the value of all imported goods. The fee is felt to violate the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and is not based on recovering actual Customs costs for processing a good. The fee brings the Treasury over $700 million per year, but the business community plans to lobby hard for its outright elimination or a change in authority to collect the fee based on actual costs.

Canadian oilsands, heavy oil poised for surge in development  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Operators in Canada`s oilsands and heavy oil regions are on the brink of a period of growth that could last well into the next century. Several factors are combining in a scenario a National Task Force report on oilsands says could dramatically increase investment and production in the next 25 years. By then, massive oilsands and heavy oil reserves in northern Alberta could account for as much as 50%--perhaps more--of Canada`s oil production. Technological improvements in recovery and processing have slashed production costs and put nonconventional oil on a more competitive footing with declining reserves of conventional crude in western Canada. At the same time, persistent lobbying by industry and a well researched national study have persuaded federal and provincial governments to introduce a new royalty and fiscal regime designed to bolster oilsands investment. New policies give clear incentives to investors to put money into oilsands and heavy oil projects. Policies also will provide a generic tax treatment for all new projects, long a major objective of oilsands promoters. Previously, royalty and tax agreements were negotiated for project case by case. This paper reviews the resource base and the new operational developments resulting from these policies.

17 - Future of Paper Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recycled fibre is becoming a globally traded commodity with countries that are rich in it developing important export businesses around its trade. The main drivers for the use of recycled fibre continue to be availability at an economic price, legislative and voluntary agreements based on environmental pressure, and continuously improving technologies for deinking and other recovered fibre processing. Despite this increasing role as a raw material for the paper industry, issues such as price volatility of recovered paper, quality factors, food contact proposals and ever-increasing environmental pressures and considerations may cause a rethink in some sectors. This is resulting in some companies opting for virgin fibre, which greatly reduces issues related to quality and food contact. Quality and price issues can, to a certain extent, be influenced by the industry and its supply chain. Environmental considerations and any new proposals relating to food contact will require effective lobbying to ensure the overall industry is not disadvantaged. The future of paper recycling is discussed in this chapter.

SINGLE-FACED GRAYQB{trademark} - A RADIATION MAPPING DEVICE  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

GrayQb{trademark} is a novel technology that has the potential to characterize radioactively contaminated areas such as hot cells, gloveboxes, small and large rooms, hallways, and waste tanks. The goal of GrayQb{trademark} is to speed the process of decontaminating these areas, which reduces worker exposures and promotes ALARA considerations. The device employs Phosphorous Storage Plate (PSP) technology as its primary detector material. PSPs, commonly used for medical applications and non-destructive testing, can be read using a commercially available scanner. The goal of GrayQb{trademark} technology is to locate, quantify, and identify the sources of contamination. The purpose of the work documented in this report was to better characterize the performance of GrayQb{trademark} in its ability to present overlay images of the PSP image and the associated visual image of the location being surveyed. The results presented in this report are overlay images identifying the location of hot spots in both controlled and field environments. The GrayQb{trademark} technology has been mainly tested in a controlled environment with known distances and source characteristics such as specific known radionuclides, dose rates, and strength. The original concept for the GrayQb{trademark} device involved utilizing the six faces of a cube configuration and was designed to be positioned in the center of a contaminated area for 3D mapping. A smaller single-faced GrayQb{trademark}, dubbed GrayQb SF, was designed for the purpose of conducting the characterization testing documented in this report. This lighter 2D version is ideal for applications where entry ports are too small for a deployment of the original GrayQb version or where only a single surface is of interest. The shape, size, and weight of these two designs have been carefully modeled to account for most limitations encountered in hot cells, gloveboxes, and contaminated areas. GrayQb{trademark} and GrayQb{trademark} SF share the same fundamental detection system design (e.g., pinhole and PSPs). Therefore, performance tests completed on the single face GrayQB in this report is also applicable to the six- faced GrayQB (e.g., ambient light sensitivity and PSP response). This report details the characterization of the GrayQb{trademark} SF in both an uncontrolled environment; specifically, the Savannah River Site (SRS) Plutonium Fuel Form Facility in Building 235-F (Metallurgical Building) and controlled testing at SRSs Health Physics Instrument Calibration Facility and SRSs R&D Engineering Imaging and Radiation Systems Building. In this report, the resulting images from the Calibration Facility were obtained by overlaying the PSP and visual images manually using ImageJ. The resulting images from the Building 235-F tests presented in this report were produced using ImageJ and applying response trends developed from controlled testing results. The GrayQb{trademark} technology has been developed in two main stages at Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL): 1) the GrayQb{trademark} development was supported by SRNLs Laboratory Directed Research and Development Program and 2) the GrayQb{trademark} SF development and its testing in Building 235-F were supported by the Office of Deactivation and Decommissioning and Facility Engineering (EM-13), U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management.

Exploring Science in Museums. New Research in Museum Studies: An International Series  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Exploring Science in Museums outlines the significant role which museums have to play in promoting the public understanding of science, and sets the challenges for museums as they prepare to move into the twenty-first century. Doughty, in his paper `Museums and Geology', describes how, before about the mid-nineteenth century, museums and science were inter-linked. They were central to the creation of scientific knowledge. The `Museum of Practical Geology' in Jermyn Street, London, for example, founded in 1851 by De la Beche (the Director of the Geological Survey), combined active field study with a school of science - with laboratories, demonstration halls and lecture theatres. By the end of the nineteenth century, however, science museums had become `trophy chests' of scientific history - mere storehouses of the products of science rather than institutions of scientific activity. The Jermyn Street Geological Museum had declined so much that by 1913 it was declared London's loneliest site: a fine place `for growing beards'. Geology, as with all museum-based science in the twentieth century, had become isolated from mainstream public science. This form of science exhibition is still prominent in many museums today. Exhibits are displayed in linear patterns of development, removed from their functional or historical context and isolated from economic, social and technological contexts. Even the recent move towards hands-on science interpretation, though popularizing science, decontextualizes it by presenting isolated scientific phenomena as a series of hands-on exhibits which, in most cases, neither relate to each other nor to the material, let alone cultural, world. One of the challenges which face science museums today is therefore to balance presentation of the process of science with the products of scientific knowledge and its application. The `trophy chest' approach to the presentation of science does little to communicate what science is really all about. Science is an active, open-ended and sometimes abstract process of induction, experimentation, deduction and discovery carried out by real people within the scientific community. Museums, however, tend to narrow down the `open ended activities of science into objects and knowledge.' Ken Arnold likens this to presenting science as a commodity, in which technological artefacts and scientific phenomena represent the products of what scientists know. This form of presentation contrasts with the nature of science as a process of discovery where the true object of attention is knowledge, not material products. The challenge for museums, then, as described by Arnold in `Museums and the Making of Science', is to present the `how, with what confidence, and on what bases, scientists come to know what they do,' in other words, the processes of scientific activity. Another challenge which now faces science museums is to promote a realistic image of science. Science, it is suggested, has created an `intellectually arrogant' image of itself in which science is seen as essential to the wealth of the nation, underpinning industry. The recent public understanding of science movement has done much to raise awareness of science's image problem, and has succeeded in concentrating the mind of curators and other science communicators to do something about it. But, as Arnold claims, the campaign suffers from a one-sided view of the problem. Much of the public understanding of science lobby sees science as `unproblematic, with their main concern being focus on an ignorant public who need to be enticed into a proper appreciation of science'. He goes on to say that `the principal objective for scientists is simply to get their message across more clearly, while the message itself it seems is sacrosanct'. The role of museums should be to supply real commentaries on science, encompassing a critical understanding of how science operates in society. Science would become more accessible, and easier to understand, if it were interpreted within the context of contemporary society and culture, yet

PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1983 DPF WORKSHOP ON COLLIDER DETECTORS: PRESENT CAPABILITIES AND FUTURE POSSIBILITIES, FEB. 28 - MARCH 4, 1983.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It is useful before beginning our work here to restate briefly the purpose of this workshop in the light of the present circumstances of elementary particle physics in the U.S. The goal of our field is easily stated in a general way: it is to reach higher center of mass energies and higher luminosities while employing more sensitive and more versatile event detectors, all in order to probe more deeply into the physics of elementary particles. The obstacles to achieving this goal are equally apparent. Escalating costs of construction and operation of our facilities limit alternatives and force us to make hard choices among those alternatives. The necessity to be highly selective in the choice of facilities, in conjunction with the need for increased manpower concentrations to build accelerators and mount experiments, leads to complex social problems within the science. As the frontier is removed ever further, serious technical difficulties and limitations arise. Finally, competition, much of which is usually healthy, now manifests itself with greater intensity on a regional basis within our country and also on an international scale. In the far ({ge}20 yr) future, collaboration on physics facilities by two or more of the major economic entities of the world will possibly be forthcoming. In the near future, we are left to bypass or overcome these obstacles on a regional scale as best we can. The choices we face are in part indicated in the list of planned and contemplated accelerators shown in Table I. The facilities indicated with an asterisk pose immediate questions: (1) Do we need them all and what should be their precise properties? (2) How are the ones we choose to be realized? (3) What is the nature of the detectors to exploit those facilities? (4) How do we respond to the challenge of higher luminosity as well as higher energy in those colliders? The decision-making process in this country and elsewhere depends on the answers to these technical questions. Those relating to the accelerators have been and continue to be addressed in many workshops and studies. For example, a workshop organized by M. Tigner will begin to study the means of achieving a very high energy (10 TeV x 10 TeV) hadron collider; this is scheduled at the end of March at Cornell University. If it seems desirable, continuity in the form of subsequent workshops on technical questions relating to accelerator facilities might be provided by the Division of Particles and Fields (DPF) of the American Physical Society, as it is doing here for collider detectors. The workshop we are about to begin is intended to address questions (3) and (4) above. It is an attempt to look at those questions from a broad point of view by assembling a wide spectrum of experts from universities and national and international laboratories. It is planned to make the proceedings of the workshop available to the 1983 Woods Hole Sub-Panel of HEPAP which is charged with the responsibility for recommendations concerning the choices that face the U.S. program. This is the main reason that we are meeting at the present time. In this connection, it is worth emphasizing that the DPF is an organization of roughly 3000 physicists from universities and national laboratories. It is an independent organization not affiliated with any laboratory or government agency. Most important, it is not a decision-making body or a lobbying group. Its aim is to provide neutral arenas for scholarly discussion of the salient issues of our area of science, e.g., the DPF Summer Study on Particle Physics and Facilities in Snowmass, Colorado, in the summer of 1982. For this reason it concentrates on technical questions such as those of this Workshop.

Evaluation of the Linear-Nonthreshold Dose-Response Model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements MD: NCRP (2001) 287 pp, $50.00 Lively debate continues on the nature of the dose-response relationship for the excess risk of cancer following exposure to ionising radiation at low doses and/or low dose rates. Clearly, these are the exposure conditions of principal importance to radiological protection. Presently, for the purposes of radiological protection, the assumption is made that the underlying dose-response relationship is linear-quadratic with no threshold, and that in the low dose and/or low dose rate region this curve can be approximated by a straight line with a gradient half that of the linear relationship which (for cancers other than leukaemia) is appropriate for moderate to high doses received at high dose rates. This, in essence, is the `linear-nonthreshold (LNT) dose-response model' referred to in the title of NCRP Report No 136. The debate centres on whether this model is appropriate or not; but it is complicated by the marked polarisation of those that disagree with this model and with the vehemence that characterises the debate. At one extreme are those who argue for a supra-linear dose-response and claim that the assumption of linearity seriously underestimates the risks to health of low dose exposures. At the other extreme are those who argue for a threshold in the dose-response at some non-zero dose, or even for beneficial effects of irradiation at low doses (`radiation hormesis'). Understandably, the former viewpoint tends to be held by anti-nuclear activists whereas the latter tends to be adopted by pro-nuclear pressure groups, and this political backdrop does not assist a balanced discussion of this important issue. In the USA, considerable lobbying exists from the threshold/hormesis camp, and this can also be seen in France and Japan. Unfortunately, although there are reasonable scientific points to be made in favour of mechanisms that ameliorate the effects of radiation at low doses, the attitude struck by some in this camp is that support of the `LNT hypothesis' is quite unreasonable and flies in the face of the evidence. Obviously, this point of view brings into question the motivation of those who support the position presently adopted by, for example, the International Commission on Radiological Protection, and leads to acrimonious and unconstructive discussions. The same is true of the other extreme wing, where radiological protection is viewed as being disturbingly lax as a result of pressure being brought to bear by the `military-industrial complex', with scientists being complicit in this conspiracy. It is into this storm that NCRP has bravely marched in publishing its Report No 136. The re-evaluation of the scientific evidence reported in NCRP Report No 136 was carried out by Scientific Committee 1-6 of the NCRP which was charged to `reassess the weight of scientific evidence for and against the linear-nonthreshold dose-response model, without reference to associated policy implications'. In essence, the linear-nonthreshold dose-response model is based upon the assumption that biological damage which, if unrepaired, could lead to cancer is directly proportional to dose throughout the range of dose and dose rates of importance in routine radiological protection. Not only did NCRP Scientific Committee 1-6 deliberate amongst themselves, but the committee sought and obtained written and oral opinion from several scientists in the USA who held different views on the subject. The report begins by examining the way in which radiation energy is deposited in cells. It concludes that at low doses and low dose rates the relevant biological damage would be produced by a `single hit' because of the spatial and temporal sparseness of the events causing the damage. Since cancer is considered to be monoclonal (single cell) in origin, this suggests that the dose-response is linear at low doses with no threshold. However, it is possible that the whole organism may be more capable of repairing damage at low doses and low dose rates, which would m
