Raúl Montenegro, Argentina
1998 in Salzburg
If you want to get a picture of Dr. Raúl A. Montenegro, you'd best ask his opponents, the South American nuclear lobby: Hardly anyone has thwarted their plans more lastingly than the biologist. In Argentina his name is synonymous with "courage in the face of the giants". Without him, the Los Gigantes uranium mines would hardly have had to close and Guatemala would have built a nuclear power plant.
