Science Learns about Economics

Science, August 31, 2007 page 1145: An editorial by Donald Kennedy –Mix Grill – states, “Something interesting has happened that I didn’t quite realize when last visiting this subject (Science, 27 April 2007, p. 515). A major economic shift has arisen through the fusion of the agriculture and energy sectors by the biofuels craze.” Interesting? Catastrophic would be a better term. Somehow, the giant brains of Science that promoted this option could not visualize, that biofuels would raise the world prices of corn and other food products. The result of this economic pressure would cause a reduction in food production in a world were starvation is already rampant, and an increase in deforestation to provide land on which to grow the biofuels. Duh!

All for a fuel that will do very little to effect climate change. The idea generated in the 70’s, “do something even if it’s wrong” has never worked. These are the people we are following into scientific driven climate changing Armageddon.

Scientist who by definition know a lot about very little should stay out areas, which require broader understanding that their specialty. Practical scientists, sometimes called Engineers, who by definition know a little about many things, should be entrusted to solve problems. Both should have the intelligence to know where their talent exists. Unfortunately, these same scientists are pushing the world into using wind and solar power similarly expensive and ineffectual sources of power.
