Lyman is also a member of the Ploughshares Fund

Here is where to comment on ABC’s “Breaking News” story about the second
reactor at Fukushima having a cooling problem 

Read this 4 page story too – it is probably the text of this evening’s ABC
Evening News broadcast – what do you members know about the “experts” that
ABC has consulted – 

Edwin Lyman, a senior scientist with the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Joseph Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund ( does not appear to
be a scientist – see below)

Ploughshares Fund is engaged in an aggressive strategy to seize the
unprecedented opportunities before us to achieve a safe, secure, nuclear
weapon-free world.  Combining high-level advocacy, an enhanced grantmaking
capacity and our own expertise, we are helping to fundamentally change
nuclear weapons policy.
Ploughshares Fund is the largest grantmaking foundation in the U.S.
dedicated exclusively to security and peace funding.  For more than 25 years
we have identified and supported the smartest people with the best ideas for
preventing the spread and use of nuclear weapons and building stability in
regions where nuclear weapons may be factors.
