Monsanto in the Whole Earth Catalog?

No, not really - but Stewart Brand (of the Whole Earth Catalog) is now advocating genetic engineering and nuclear energy as tools for environmentalists.

I've requested his new book from my local library. I'll let you know what I think!

  1. This is terrible, but I'm glad there's an audio version of the book which makes it much more likely for me to "read" since I'll go through 7-10 audio books on a round trip to Tennessee. Thanks for this! It sounds interesting.

  2. That's a great idea! I never take a long trip without a good backlog of This American Life - I should look into audio books too.

    At any rate, it should be a good read. I was impressed by the author's amiable rationality and his refusal to comment on topics that were beyond his expertise.
