A Distant Light Scientists and Public Policy (Gebundene Ausgabe)

Reihe: Masters of Modern Physics

Springer-Verlag GmbH, Springer US, November 1999

318 S. - Sprache: Englisch - 70 schwarz-weiße Abbildungen, 30 schwarz-weiße Fotos, 40 schwarz-weiße Zeichnungen - 241x160x21 mm

ISBN: 0387988335 EAN: 9780387988337

A collection of essays by a Nobel Prize Laureate on a wide range of problems facing the world, and the role of scientists in solving them. Kendall was one of a group of physicists who founded the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) and is currently chairman of its board of directors. UCS is today a voice of authority in US government science policy, particularly with regard to environment issues. Together, these essays represent both the successes and failures of science to impact public policy, and offer practical guidelines for involvement in science policy. They are roughly chronological, organised by subject with introductions, beginning with the controversies on nuclear power safety and Three Mile Island, then followed by sections on national security issues, global environmental and resource problems, and radioactive cleanup. Kendall's Nobel Prize lecture is also included (and is the only really technical material in the book), while the photos are from a 1992 exhibition of his work.

A collection of essays by a Nobel Laureate on a wide range of critical issues facing the world, and the role of scientists in solving these problems. Kendall has been closely involved with the Union of Concerned Scientists, a group that began as an informal association at MIT in 1969 to protest US involvement in Vietnam and is today an organization with an annual budget exceeding $6 million, with 100,000 supporters worldwide.
