OK, Harmon, at least you've posted
what you're talking about.
The following excerpt from David Blume
is a good indicator of hype:
"Dr. Pimentel is an entomologist, a studier
of bugs, and Dr. Patzek is a physicist and
engineer. Neither of them is trained in ecology.
So they are straying far afield."
Ecology is embedded in entomological studies
in the first place, but if you or Blume would
actually dig into Pimentel's research
you'd find plenty of reseach that supports
organic farming, sustainable agriculture,
and ecological systems.
It's more hype from Blume to suggest that
a scientist who has published over 400 journals
accomplished this work *because* it was funded
I'll grant Blume credit for his detailed
analysis of Pimentel's numbers on energy
