So maybe the Union of Concerned Scientists could do the distribution instead?

OK, I will make contact with 4-5 people (including John Mitchell) and see what
comments I get back. Does Bert Bolin rank as one of your top scientists? He is
receiving an Honorary Degree from our University today and if I see him when he
calls by I could mention the idea to him. What do you think? or do you wish to
wait until we have an initial reaction from people?
About WWF …. I still feel a little uncomfortable using a ‘loaded’ organisation
like WWF to distribute the statement. It may well detract from the statement as
it will be perceived to be biased. But it’s difficult to know how else we can
enlist widespread support. Is there not an organisation called the Union of
Concerned Scientists – would this do the job?
I will think some more about it.
