Who is Nuke Shill Kelvin Kemm and Who Does He Work For?

16 02 2014

Dana had a lot to say about nuke advocate, Kelvin Kemm.

WHO IS  THIS GUY?

He wrote this drivel – Physicist: There was no Fukushima nuclear disaster

Here’s his bio.

Dr Kelvin Kemm is a Technology Strategy Consultant and runs his own company, Stratek, based in Pretoria, South Africa. He studied at Natal University where he gained a PhD in nuclear physics before working as a scientist at the Atomic Energy Corporation of South Africa. He subsequently moved into the field of the management of technology, and became involved in a variety of projects in many industrial sectors, giving him wide exposure to the technological and industrial base of society. In 1994, Dr Kemm was appointed to the International Board of Advisors of the Washington DC-based environment and technology lobby group, The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow. In 1996, he became the first person from Africa to be appointed to the European Science and Environment Forum (ESEF), and was appointed to the ESEF Board in 1999. He is also a member of the British Institute of Nuclear Engineers. Dr Kemm has written a public interest book on technology entitled “Techtrak – A Winding Path of South African Development”. He also has his own weekly newspaper column in Engineering News, and has appeared widely on radio and TV.

What’s with this Stratek joint?Stratek also engages in problem solving over a wide front. This is tackled in ‘detective mode‘ to establish the reality of a perceived problem or problem area.” . . .  oh, a P.R. firm planting disinfo and harassing all of us who expose nuke shills!

And he belongs to this wacky, pro-nuke nut groupCFACT.org = The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (ding dong!!)

What a sh*tbag:

Dr Kemm founded the environment and technology lobby group Green and Gold Forum. The Forum’s objective is to bring a scientifically accurate[sic] and balanced view of environmental issues to the public, and senior national decision-makers.

In 1994 Dr Kemm was appointed to the International Board of Advisors of the Washington DC-based environment and technology lobby group; The Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow. This organisation has a daily radio slot on more than 250 American radio stations.

The Green and Gold Forum is a phoney enviro group fronting for anti-enviro industrialists.

Why would  South Africa be so interested in promoting nukes? Oh, – they have a bunch of uranium mines!Uranium-rich South Africa good environment for nuclear plants

Thanks for staying on top of things. I wonder how many of these people even make up their credentials (not saying this guy but in general). I know of a professor who claims to have gone to the same university as this guy. That person admitted to falsifying parts of their resume because it “sounded good”. I always wondered if they made up their degree too. Who checks? It’s not so easy to find out.

I think this guy is in the business of playing ‘dirty tricks’ on critics of nuke industry.
He has a devious way of describing his ‘work’.

No doubt about it. Just raising the possibility that some of these people might not even know anything either. A Mathematics Ph.D. once told me that it is the most political of all because not even the 4 people on the committee will understand the topic. You would think that Mathematics would be the least political. It would be very easy for someone from a poorer country to lie and say that they have an undergrad degree and then slide into a Ph.D. program in another country and then slide through it because people think the person must be smart or they wouldn’t be there. Or, they pay the right people. I’m trying to be short because I know that you and I together could fill up many blogs on academia. I just love to hear Dana curse them all, because I know the academic world all too well. They deserve it. Obviously, love to hear him curse at the nuclear industry too, whether academics or not. He’s a brave soul to show his face. Your info about the mining is very important too. All of it is. So very many bad guys…so very little time. We need more people like you and Dana showing them up. It’s the only hope.

All of Dana’s fans together can run about collecting follow up info for a giant nuke-industry-bashing effort!
I feel soon more info will get ‘sealed off’ on the web.
They know we are finding out too much!

Everyone has enough info now. People can learn the old fun ways when the challenge was finding information. I wish I had less information. I’ve got more than there is time to put online.

Anyway, if they leave Fukushima it doesn’t matter.

Thanks. This is a really nice summary. I suspect that this period of blacklisting-McCarthyism never really ended. Also interesting was that Pete Seeger’s father lost his job for opposing WWI. I thought people were sent to prison for opposing WWI. People protested the second Iraq War without being sent to prison. They were just ignored, which seems to be the new way.

Forgot to say that people lost their jobs in the UK and probably elsewhere for their political beliefs. Either EP Thompson or Rude or both lost teaching jobs when they were in their 40s and made a comeback in their 80s.

Oh, also forgot to say that not just Pete Seeger took on the House UnAmerican Activities Committee in the 1950s but also Methodist Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam and probably others.
