Jeremy Rifkin: Still Crazy After All These Years

From over at Tech Central Station, Henry I. Miller, MD, reviews the latest silliness from the Nutty Professor:

Professional worrier Jeremy Rifkin's pronouncements always remind me of the
characterization by one-time Speaker of the House of Representatives Thomas B. Reed of his political opponents, "They never open their mouths
without subtracting from the sum of human knowledge."

Rifkin's assertion that Americans' consumption of beef causes domestic violence were absurd. So were his claims that biotechnology threatens "a form of annihilation every bit as deadly as nuclear holocaust," and that a small-scale field trial of a
gene-spliced soil bacterium could change weather patterns and disrupt air-traffic control.
