Mike Ivey: Nanotech dangers get full airing
At first blush it seemed like a UW version of "greenwashing," the term applied to corporate PR efforts to mask their polluting ways.
But researchers organizing the"Citizens' Coalition on Nanotechnology" claim their effort is nothing of the sort.
"We don't have an agenda. People can take this anywhere they want to go," said Maria Powell, an environmental scientist at UW-Madison.
