Here's a new guest post at Whatsupwiththat covering some of my favorite complaints about green junk science ranging from the (possibly) biggest mass murderer of the 20th century, Rachel Carson, to 3rd world starvation due to a lack of exported corn.
That second item might be open to debate. Exporting mass quantities of food to the 3rd world will keep some number of people alive at the expense of undercutting local agriculture that can't compete with cheap or even free imported food from the U.S. When the spigot is turned off, the tattered remains of the local agriculture is unable to feed even a small fraction of the native population.
Harsh as this may be, in the long run it is better for the population involved as it highlights the shortcomings of the national agricultural policy and encourages much needed reforms.
