Borlaug won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 for his contributions to improved farming
and increased food production acrossthe
world. With today's posts about GMOs I thought it appropriate to feature him.
The title "Borlaug the Great" is attributed to someone other than me,
but I can't remember who it was. However the originator noted the world
has dubbed a number of people throughout history with the accolade "The
Great", but they've all been people like Alexander the Great. People who
were responsible for killing a great many people in their quest for power. He
thought it’s about time someone who may have saved a billion people from
starving to death was more deserving. I agree!
