Which bits of nanotechnology does ETC now oppose?
Richard Jones: Checking out the website of the anti-nanotechnology campaigning group ETC, I see that their position on nanotechnology seems to have subtly changed. A press release dated November 23 2004 says “In 2002, ETC called for a moratorium on the commercialisation of new nano-scale materials until laboratory protocols and regulatory regimes are in place that take into account the special characteristics of these materials, and until they are shown to be safe”. But currently their website calls for a rather different moratorium: “The ETC group believes that a moratorium should be placed on research involving molecular self-assembly and self-replication.”
