Dark Green Day

A man who truly and radically and wonderfully ‘made a difference’ – Norman Borlaug – has died.  This father of the Green Revolution directly enabled millions of persons to live healthier, longer lives — indeed, millions to be born who otherwise would never have lived.

I blogged on Mr. Borlaug back in May 2004.

It’s distressing, I can’t help adding, that dead politicians are often canonized in the popular press while most of humanity will go to their graves never hearing the names of, or learning of the contributions of, genuine heroes of humanity such as Norman Borlaug.
