This douchebag from the National Review questions Vandana Shiva's [one of Time's "green heroes"] credibility by suggesting she's fat. The bullshit is flying, and it seems to be getting uglier, as witnessed by the ad hominem irrelvancies on News Hour last night. Why are they so desperate? The Science article he refers to is here. In fact, it demonstrates that organic farming is more efficient per input level (also see here for the problem with yield measurements). Now who's willfully misinterpreting "science"? Funny that they never cite studies like "Pest damage and arthropod community structure in organic vs. conventional tomato production in California," Journal of Applied Ecology�38�(3),�557-570 [Blackwell-Synergy], which demonstrated that pest damage to tomatoes is statistically identical whether grown conventionally or organically -- in other words, pesticides don't even do what they're supposed to do.
