Shutdown of nanotech irresponsible and dangerous, says CRN

A decision to halt all research and development into nanotechnology would be irresponsible and dangerous, according to the non-profit Center for Responsible NanotechnologyTM, an independent policy research group. This statement comes in response to a lengthy report issued by the watchdog group ETC, which recommends that governments declare an immediate moratorium on commercial production of new nanomaterials.
