"At the end of the talks, I made a value judgement. I said that I thought there were better ways to use atomic energy than spewing it forth into the atmosphere while telling everybody it was good for them....I received an interesting letter from the Atomic Energy Commission shortly thereafter, asking me what my qualifications were to talk on such matters, and that after all, I had an Atomic Energy Commission grant, and shouldn't I maybe shape up?"
Paul Saltman. Speech titled "The Scientist Looks Ahead," presented at a Scripps-Caltech student and faculty conference. February 1959.
