Biofuels, land and fire

The 11 July 08 issue of Science has a letter titled "Biofuels: Effects on Land and Fire" authored by Keith I. Kline and Virginia H. Dale, of the Environmental Sciences Division of Oak Ridge National Lab. [321 Science 199].

There is also a letter by Tom Wassenaar and Simon Kay titled "Biofuels: one of many claims to resources." [321 Science 201]

To read these "letters to the editor," one must belong to AAAS or pay for them. One might keep the policy of Science concerning its intellectual property in mind when reading the ramblings of Eli Kintisch on intellectual property which are published in Science. Self-consistent? Not really. It follows the third grade logic: my IP is good and yours is bad, logic already employed by CIRM against WARF.
