The biotech progenitor

The Monk is somewhat dismayed that, like most people, he knows the names of doom-mongering Malthusian icon Paul S. Ehrlich, author of the laughably wrong tract The Population Bomb, and Rachel Carson, author of the preposterously false Silent Spring, but The Monk could not answer this question: Who is Norman Borlaug? If the name C.S. Prakash means anything to you, I just gave you a hint.

Read Ron Bailey's column (click the link) and you might share that dismay.
