Greenpeace vs. UN

ABC News: Greenpeace: Chernobyl Toll May Top 90,000: "Greenpeace said Tuesday in a new report that more than 90,000 people were likely to die of cancers caused by radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, countering a United Nations report that predicted the death toll would be around 4,000."

Now, which of these two groups would be most likly politically motivated? Greenpeace is on a jihad against nuclear reactors. The UN may have some leniancy for Russia, but not to this degree.
Its greenpeace inflating the state of fear again.

Yes, that claim seemed pretty suspect to me.

4,000 vs 90,000?

Someone is wrong. :P Very wrong. :P It'd be interesting to see what Russia's numbers are...

I believe Russia, the Internation Atomic Energy Agency, and the United Nations all worked together for their study. Admitadly, they may be slightly biased in the Russkies favor, but I can't belive to that degree.
