Thank you Business Lit for floating me this story.
Every time I start believing that I can write effectively, think critically, and get an audience for my work, I read something like this speech given by Michael Crichton. Then I curl up in the fetal position for a while and create a post like this. With extremely clarity and vision and without politics, Crichton delivers an eloquent look at Fear, Complexity,
& Environmental Management in the 21st Century
After reading this, I’m just not sure how the "panic media" or "activists" or "immediate action or else" crowd actually functions or reasons I’d love to see one of those types do a step by step attempt at rebuttal of the logic presented in this piece. I’m willing to listen.
