TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The serious threats to American security are not the preoccupations of today's headline news. To find the real scoop on the crises and opportunities for Americans, there is no better place to start than the annual meeting of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness, convening this year in Las Vegas, August 24-26.
Have you been taught that nuclear war is the end of the world and thus there is no point in thinking about it? You can meet Toshiharu Kano, who was in his mother's womb half a mile from Ground Zero at Hiroshima. Is radiation lethal at any dose, or is uninformed fear blocking medical breakthroughs that use low-dose radiation? Jerry Cuttler will discuss treatment of neurodegenerative conditions including Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases.

Does the threat of catastrophic human-caused climate change make everything else irrelevant? Willie Soon will talk about the "blue sun" in climate history, and Joe Bastardi, who is renowned for his forecasting ability, will discuss how past knowns predict future weather unknowns.
What about "clean, renewable" energy as a "common sense" insurance policy against climate apocalypse? Wind and solar have devastating environmental impacts, to be discussed by physics professor Howard Hayden. The fuel cell "Bloomdoggle" in Delaware is the subject for David Legates, and Joe Leimkuehler of LLOG will provide an update on deep-water drilling.
