Scientists And Social Issues

Department: Letters

I want to congratulate Michael Heylin and C &EN for printing “Nuclear Weapons,” a subject that is sure to continue to raise the hackles on the necks of some readers (C&EN, July 14, page 33). It is important, in my view, for scientists to take an active role in commenting on issues that border on political and social concerns. I think he has it right!

I hope you will continue to deal with issues of this type.
