John Polanyi, writing in the Globe and Mail, May 26, 2009 says "We must hope that the same civilized approach (as illustrated by the scientific method) can be employed to persuade a wider public of new truths. It is, in fact, our only hope. We cannot conduct ourselves on a crowded planet as we please; the economy will fail (as to a degree it has), the environment will fail (as it has begun to do) and the victims of both failures may, in desperation, take up arms. I ascribe to this last possibility the revival of concern over the spread of nuclear weapons.
