The principal goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered.
-Jean Piaget, psychologist (9 Aug 1896-1980)

Here’s a link to one that shows nitrogen (fertilizer) practices in the U.S. It looks like the southern plains area does the best at managing nitrogen runoff, and that the northeast does the worst. However, these aren’t very important because it’s the corn belt and northern plains we need to worry about!
I guess California’s off the hook – we must not grow any reasonable amount of corn here. Why?
