Company sued for potentially ending the world

An NPR story on a Hawaiian botanist's lawsuit against CERN to try to prevent the Large Hadron Collider from being turned on for fear that it will destroy the earth. This is worth listening to in order to hear Rudy Rucker read from one of his novels, Spaceland.

There's a James Hogan (spit) novel uses the same idea (only in that case it was a pulsed-implosion fusion reactor).
