me tell you a little about my background, so you’ll appreciate
better the tone of these articles. I was born in Virginia, USA, in
February 1938. Since my parents were Canadian, we settled in London,
Ontario after WWII. I was educated in Canada, in London’s public
schools, at Ridley College in St. Catharines, then at the University
of Western Ontario for medical school, and finally at the University
of Toronto for a PhD in medical biophysics.
After working at the Montreal General Hospital (intern), at McMaster
University (post-doctoral fellow) and at Roswell Park Memorial Institute
(assistant scientist), I moved with my family to New York City, where
I worked at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (associate professor)
and where I eventually trained (1977-1980) to become a radiation oncologist.
Now I’m winding down my professional career as emeritus professor
at the University of Wisconsin, where I’ve cared for cancer
patients over the past 35 years. My research interests have focussed
on how viruses cause cancer, and how hyperthermia can be used to assist
radiation in the treatment of cancer.
you click on Articles and read "Reflections of a Concerned
Earthling", you'll learn how I fell in love with Nature.
We are all affected in various ways by Nature's beauty. Some
feel a certain reverence as they fish or hunt, but I feel a powerful
commitment to try to protect the whole planet. Rather than argue
over which is the better predictor of climate change, the Canadian
or the Hadley model, I admit to a passionate belief that caring and
acting sooner is better than waking up later and wishing we had acted
sooner. If you feel similarly, then welcome, and read on!
