In fairness to Sci Am I should mention that the article was a fairly
evenhanded depiction of Rifkin, that didn't explicitly, or implicitly
as far as I could tell,
endorse his views. Anyone interested in science needs to be aware of
those who oppose it. I found it a useful article b/c I know
very little about Rifkin, though I don't think the article in question
presented the whole picture.
