"'Silencing the Lambs: scientists target sheep belching to cut methane' (Feb. 26) illustrates the wastefulness of the global-warming agenda. Signifigant resources of time, talent, and treasure are employed to do the impossible (alter the digestive workings of sheep) in an attempt to solve a problem (so-called man-made global warming) which doesn't exist.
<b>Imagine the benefits to society that would accrue if these resources were instead employed in a productive manner. </b>"
ok, ignoring anything about your assumptions on agendas, politics, and science, as a creative, brilliant, technical person, I would like to express my offence at the audacity to think that someone else's talent is yours to direct. If you have resources including intellect, then do what you would want with them. But you cannot dictate what others choose to think about.
it may be thought experiments that got published, or it may be real expense but thinkers need to play with their minds just like regular folks need to sleep and dream.
Might I recommend the title 'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand as a story of an exaggeration of what could happen when thought and motivation becomes regulated and dictated by overly socialistic ideals such as yours.
