Seldom taught in the fields of finance, commerce and much of technology, ethics considerations are not accessible to those who have made these costly, irreversible, life-endangering decisions. Who indeed is to decide who lives, gets sick, has birth defects or dies a premature death?

We must speak out and demand closure of all nuclear power plants. Please, contact your local, state and national representative and write to your local newspapers.

Janette D. Sherman, M.D., a physician, toxicologist and author, concentrating on chemicals and nuclear radiation that cause cancer and birth defects, is consulting editor for “Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and Nature,” a comprehensive presentation of all the available information concerning the health and environmental effects of the low dose radioactive contaminants. Originally published by the New York Academy of Sciences in 2009 for $150, she has had it republished for wide distribution at only $10. See http://janettesherman.com/books/ . Dr. Sherman has worked in radiation and biologic research at the University of California nuclear facility and at the U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory at the Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco. Her primary interest is the prevention of illness through public education and patient awareness. She can be reached at www.janettesherman.com .

Over 10 percent of Rutgers — New Brunswick students have signed a petition in support of strong carbon emission rules for new coal plants. So far, the campaign has garnered the support of more than 6,000 students at the three Rutgers campuses.

They and their Society, "Professor Melanie McDermott", will do better in the class room then in the streets carrying signs. Gee you think they could muster up a bill and petition their local representative. Hay here’s an idea maybe they think were back in the 70's

Well, the truth is told by the spacedoutblues. The spacedoutblues admits it was seldom (more like never) taught in any fields it mentioned above.
