Response from Dr. Thomas Scott, Dean College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences at Clemson University to the January 19, 2012 Yahoo! Education Post: “College Majors that are Useless” http://www.clemson.edu/cafls/news_research/news/agricultural_science_majors_hardly_a_useless_pursuit.html
YAHOO HAS WRITTEN ANOTHER ARTICLE ATTACKING THE AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY. So if you are reading this today, I challenge you to do 2 things: 1. Share this information - if we don’t influence their thinking, will be influenced by the data that inaccurately paints a negative portrayal of our industry 2. If you work in agriculture, talk about your career, what you do and how it relates back to the production of food, fuel & fiber our planet survives on.
