It is time for Cryonics Institute (CI) to step up to the plate and protect their organization, and the cryonics community as a whole, from the shady activities and embarrassment of the American Cryonics Society (ACS), an organization whose two leaders are involved in some REALLY QUESTIONABLE activities related to the operations of their non-profit organization. I've been waiting, since July, for someone at CI to do something about this, but it doesn't appear they will, without a little nudging.
The two so-called "leaders" of ACS need to step down, dissolve their useless and sullied organization, hand over their members to CI, and donate whatever cash they have to CI. Perhaps the money could be used for a legitimate hypothermia-related research project, (and I don't mean one of those crackpot "engineering" projects that go on, at other cryonics organizations). In my opinion, it is Cryonics Institute's obligation, (to their members, potential members, and the cryonics community as a whole), to make this happen, by severing all ties with ACS.
Prior to donating their funds to a legitimate research project, ACS should refund SB's $1,000, and if they do not, CI should, as someone there contributed to the situation.
That's all I have to say...for now.
