Green Heresies

I rather like this series of mini articles on There are quite a few environmentalists who seem to think that they are somehow helping the environment by buying organic food, opposing nuclear power, and opposing genetically modified crops among other things. They are not. There is good reason to make us as efficient as possible in most of what we do. Wasting land on crops with lower yields, or ignoring the one low carbon electricity source that we could scale up the easiest while waiting for a solar utopia are pretty silly.
