  • Type



Activities of the new, politically conscious, breed of American scientists who have broken away from 'establishment' science to find an alternative science. Defoliation, people-sniffers, and napalm in Vietnam have given establishment science a dirty name. Environmental problems have added to the disenchantment. Some scientists are no longer willing to see their research exploited for selfish and military ends. They aim to find an alternative science whose purpose is to work with nature and aimed at the genuine welfare of people.
