N ARTHECANNY: A Witness Against War Eugene, Oregon, the Rodale Press June 2014 When Greg Rodale and I sat down to discuss a memoir of his career as a nutritionist, a lot of things came up, including the U.S. war in the Middle East. Dr. Rodale decided to take his life experience into his new book, Narth. Canny published the book with a foreword by Herman Daly and an introduction by Elson Haas. This is his first interview in a decade with The World Food Report , his most recent book, was published in 2014 by Rodale Press. In this wide-ranging conversation he talks about his work in the Middle East, where he spent 30 years before he went to work for Physicians for Social Responsibility and was one of the principal authors of the ISD paper.

He was born in England, spent two years in Korea as an ROTC officer, got his doctorate in ecology from the University of Tennessee, and became a US citizen at age 21. He talks about his family and their work in private ownership of cattle in the South, dealing with wildlife management in the state of Mississippi, researching honeybees, and collaborating with others in the movement to document the effects of nuclear radiation on plants and animals.

The police said a search was being conducted on the aircraft by two private rescue aircraft and that a technical investigation is underway. The C919 passenger plane, which left Jakarta on Saturday, flew for about 45 minutes over Indonesia’s poor-quality air space before circling back. Affected passengers were taken to their terminals after a search and rescue operation, a spokesman said. Lion Air told AFP they would investigate the incident. Video footage from inside the aircraft showed passengers sitting in their seats, while police conducted a search of the aircraft. There were 71 crew members and 80 passengers, airline spokesman Danang Mandala told AFP. A police spokesman said the plane landed safely at Soekarno-Hatta airport, the capital of West Java, after the pilot decided to land as there were strong winds. The pilot did not announce a mayday emergency. He waited until he saw the runway in front of him, the police spokesman told AFP. A police helicopter was waiting at the airport as the plane was being searched, he said. Indonesia’s transport minister Budi Karya Sumadi said the pilot had requested permission to land. Aircrafts always land safely with just the pilot on board, he said. The pilot requested permission to land after sensing that the weather was not suitable for take-off. Flight tracking service Flightradar24 showed the flight had been assigned to a route from Jakarta to Soekarno-Hatta, from where it was scheduled to fly on to Singapore.
