Summary

OTTAWA-- A majority of the world's living Nobel laureates issued a statement last week urging industrial nations to work cooperatively to address conditions that they believe contribute to global terrorism and unrest in the developing world. The statement, signed by 110 laureates and released at the 100th anniversary of the prizes (see www.sciencemag.org/feature/data/nobel.shl for full text and list of signatories), identifies poverty, global warming, and the spread of arms as a combustible mix, and it points to several international agreements as examples of the kinds of measures that should be encouraged.
