SUNY Albany Restores Dr. David Carpenter’s Teaching Status

SUNY Albany on Feb. 21 reversed course and restored Dr. David Carpenter, long time head of the Institute for Health and the Environment, to full academic status. SUNY had sought to restrict Carpenter’s teaching status after chemical giant Monsanto had asked questions regarding Carpenter’s role as an expert witness in cases involving the toxic chemical PCBs which Monsanto produced. Thousands of groups and individuals had protested SUNY’s action over the last 2 weeks after the situation hit the media. We hear from Rebecca Martin of Riverkeeper and Dr. Carpenter.
