José Pascual Pérez Campos y Eduardo Larrea y Richerand han realizado una muy cuidadosa reseña histórica del desarrollo en México de uno de los grandes avances de la tecnología médica de este siglo. El impacto de estas tecnologías en el diagnóstico y tratamiento de las enfermedades ha modificado favorablemente la atención de numerosas enfermedades. Los conocimientos que sirvieron de base para crear armas de destrucción masiva, afortunadamente para la conciencia de los investigadores de este campo, se han convertido en un arma eficaz en beneficio de los enfermos. El grupo de científicos de Oak Ridge asociados con investigadores de diversas universidades lograron avanzar de los iniciales usos del Yodo para el diagnóstico y tratamiento de enfermedades del tiroides a diversos implementos tecnológicos que han permitido estudiar el cuerpo humano con una precisión increíble.

The Right Climate Stuff, TRCS, Hal Doiron, Chairman: Astronauts have had a unique perspective of Earth, home to us all. Having viewed it as a whole from above, they realize the finite nature of our planet and have had to weigh what humans may be doing to it through industrialization. The upshot is they’ve become super-sensitive to published information relative to man’s potential influence on the planet but concerned over the direction NASA has taken on climate-change science.

Al Gore, NPR (National Public Radio): His 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which was basically an adaption of his PowerPoint presentation about the effects of global warming, was a surprise box office success. Now he has a new documentary, called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. [The fossil fuel industry] financed a major cottage industry of climate denial with pseudoscientists who crank out these phony pseudoscientific reports. Trump has surrounded himself with a rogues' gallery of climate deniers, coming out of the fossil fuel industry.

Dan Rodricks, Writer for The Baltimore Sun: Dear World: I know it looks pretty bad right now, but I think I speak for many of my fellow Americans when I say that the United States is better than its current president. --- So, world, look, we are still interested in you, despite how it looks right now. Sorry about the climate change thing. Sorry about the Russia thing. Sorry about the awkward handshakes and phone calls with your leaders. Sorry to put you through this.
