Jonathan Schell, the renowned scholar and author of "The Fate of the Earth," sch
Jonathan Schell, the renowned scholar and author of "The Fate of the Earth," scheduled a press conference at the Portland International Jetport on June 5 to call for the abolition of nuclear weapons, but nobody showed up. Schell's visit to Maine was sponsored by Peace Action Maine and Physicians for Social Responsibility. Its purpose was to support local resolutions calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons. Schell also wanted to call attention to the fact that U.S. Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins have not yet taken a position on the issue. Schell is convinced that sound arguments and voices of reason will ultimately prevail, and he hopes the recent nuclear testing by India and Pakistan will provide the impetus needed to finally resolve the problem.
