WHEAT RUST UPDATE: New Wheat Variety Beats Superbug, Has Higher Yield. I hope people are working on cold-weather/short-season variants, too . . .
UPDATE: Reader Dave Ivers emails that if we’re talking genetically-engineered wheat, we’ll just have to let people starve.
WE BEAT THE GREAT INSTAPUNDIT BY A WEEK AND GAVE OUR READERS FREE BLUNT COMMENTARY AT NO EXTRA CHARGE!
SCIENTISTS DEVELOP SUPER DISEASE RESISTANT WHEAT WHICH ALSO BOOSTS YIELDS 15%!THIS IS WHY JERKS LIKE PAUL EHRLICH AND TOM FRIEDMAN (WHO ARGUE THAT WE'RE DOOMED BECAUSE RESOURCES ARE DWINDLING) ARE JERKS:'Super Varieties' of Wheat Expected to Boost Yields and Block Deadly Threat to Food Security
ScienceDaily (June 9, 2011) — Five years after the launch of a global effort to protect the world's most important food crop from variants of Ug99, a new and deadly form of wheat rust, scientists say they are close to producing super varieties of wheat that will resist the potent pathogen, while boosting yields by as much as 15 percent.
INNOVATION IS WHY THERE ARE MORE AND A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF HUMANS LIVING LON GER BETTER LIVES TODAY THAN AT ANY TIME IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY.
INNOVATION IS INNATE, BUT IT'S ONLY SPURRED WHEN PEOPLE ARE FREE TO INNOVATE - AND ABLE TO BE REWARDED FOR THEIR INNOVATIONS.
IOW: INNOVATION IS A BY-PRODUCT OF LIBERTY AND THE FREE-MARKET.
WHICH IS WHY LEFTIST POLICIES RETARD HUMAN PROSPERITY: LEFTIST POLICIES LIMIT LIBERTY AND THE REWARDS IN THE FREE-MARKET.
WHICH IS WHY I HAVE LONG ARGUED THIS:
IF WE WANT TO MAKE POVERTY HISTORY,
THEN WE HAVE TO MAKE LEFTIST POLICIES HISTORY.WE NEED TO ERADICATE LEFTISM AND CLIMATE CHANGE HYSTERIA IF WE WANT GLOBAL PROSPERITY.
SPREAD THE WORD!
