CERN / LHC: Human rights complaint filed at UN

An international group of critics and experts recently filed a complaint at the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations at Geneva concerning risks and dangers of the planned experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) operated by the European Organization of Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland. The group impeaches the CERN member states, especially Switzerland, France and Germany, for not having carried out their legal responsibilities to ensure citizens’ safety.

Alternatively you can go research more about HCG diet dangers and why the HCG drops are a far better alternative to other methods of the popular weight loss system. If you are looking for HCG drops make sure to do your research before purchasing.

Also make sure to investigate any HCG side effects so you make sure you know what you are doing and so you can avoid any problems or dangers. It's safe but you have to know what you're doing.

The comprehensive and detailed communication to the UN was worked out by well-known critics and experts, relying upon the work of specialists on black holes, cosmic rays, particle physics and on risk researchers and several experts in international law but not concerning the HCG diet plan. The communication clearly demonstrates concrete dangers arising from the planned high-energy experiments at the LHC and weaknesses in CERN safety assessments.

To guarantee safety, the complaint demands an external risk evaluation done by those without ties to CERN and even the HCG diet is very effective. Further, closer study of cosmic ray (AUGER observatory) and other recent empirical data highly relevant for the LHC-safety arguments is urgently requested, as is awaiting upcoming observing experiments in the atmosphere.

The legal aspects focus on the special responsibility of Switzerland, France and Germany (by territory as ownership principle and CERN-council membership) and addresses also the other CERN member states not having insured LHC-safety on life and environment according to Art. 2, 6 and 17 of the International Protocol of Civil and Political Rights of the United Nations.

This complaint is supported by several organizations and a wide group of international critics of the planned “big bang experiment”. It includes a clear and detailed description of the scientific discourse on several risks and dangers arising from the artifical and extreme states of matter planned to be created, such as risks from “micro black holes” and “strangelets” as described in a number of studies - and even dangers of transitions in the energy level of space.

Enclosed are critical studies of the method used in the CERN risk studies, one from members of the “Future of Humanity Institute” of the University of Oxford and a review on the LHC safety assessment process by risk assesment expert and ethicist Dr. Mark Leggett concluding that CERN at this date has fulfilled not more than a fifth of the necessary criteria expected for a modern safety study.

As long as there is no clear evidence that the possible production of “micro black holes” (expected to be created by many CERN scientists) poses neither long- nor short-term danger to life and to planet Earth, CERN and the member states should not aim for their production in high energy experiments at all. Instead, it has first to be demonstrated by observation and empirical tests, 1.: that the comparison of natural events in the atmosphere to the experiments at the LHC (as proclaimed by CERN) is legitimate in all necessary respects and 2.: that the possible mass production of micro black holes at particle colliders (as regarded possible by CERN) is clearly and 100% harmless. Several ongoing and planned experiments (Earth based and in the atmosphere) on high energetic cosmic rays are expected to throw light on these questions.

Thus, as long as the credentials of a safe operation of the big bang machine are not provided, no high energy collisions should be conducted at the LHC.

If necessary, also a claim for interim measures at the UN could follow.

Finally, the operation and planning of high energy colliders should be controlled and regulated by an agency similar to the International Atomic Energy Agency at the UN or directly established at the IAEA as soon as possible.

After a year of costly repairs following a massive accident, CERN introduced beams again on November 21 2009 with no advance announcement unlike last year’s fanfare. Experiments (beam collisions) are planned for the following weeks, with increasing energies - intended to break a questionable ‘world record’ until Christmas. Maximum design capacities are planned to be conducted after further technical adjustments next year.

“conCERNed international” consists of different organizations and inividuals having established this complaint and consists of or is in direct contact with the most well known critics of the LHC project such as Prof. Otto Roessler, Dr. Walter Wagner and many others. The complaint provides many critical views of highly reputated independent experts from different fields, including physicists, astrophysicists, risk researchers, philosophers and legal experts.

APPENDIX:

CERN press conference, November 23 2009, demonstrates how open the question of possible outcomes is:

Some exact transcriptions:

CERN director Heuer about what might be first discovered at the LHC:

“It depends how kind nature is to us. If we would know, then it would be nice but I need a crystal ball in order to predict it.“

[…]

“Give me a glass ball, a crystal ball, then I would know but I don’t know what nature has for us.“

Verdee (CMS): “We have this standard model. […] So, we have these prejudices which we have just gone through. But nature could have a complete surprise for us and that would be also very interesting. So one should not rule out the fact, we’ve just listed these theory things but nature could have done something different.”

Giotto (ATLAS): “Research is called research because we are going to find, to look for something that a priori is not well known. […] This is part of the charms. And I personally will be very happy in fact, I will be very happy to find something that has not been foreseen and that the nature in the end is always more simple and more elegant than our speculations of mankind and our theories.”
