Galen Hulet Winsor (June 4, 1926 - July 19, 2008) was an American chemist and nuclear plant safety manager who publicly denounced strict controls on atomic energy, arguing, among other things, that there has been a conspiracy by an energy cartel to misinform the public about the dangers of radioactive materials, which he proposed are largely harmless, extending to include claims that the 1979 partial meltdown of a reactor at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2) in Pennsylvania did not occur and the event was fabricated to stoke public fears, and that programs for the apparent disposal of radioactive waste are used by criminal elements to dispose of human bodies. His lectures on the matter were funded by the American Opinion Speakers Bureau, a committee of the John Birch Society.
