I am a December 1980 grad of the school of Natural Resources who has worked for the last 31 years as a CPA. I am currently a director of a private trust company in North Carolina, and would love to have ET as our first alien client!! It is too late for me to return to my Natural Resources roots, but my middle son is attending NC State School of Natural Resources this fall (I would have preferred Michigan's, but I take what I can get).
The chances of finding extraterrestrial life via S@H is slim, but we are showing how millions of people can work towards a common goal by volunteering time and energy. If we can harness this energy on SETI, think of what can be done towards peace, environmental problems, energy etc.
