Interesting blog on Adam D.!

Interesting blog on Adam D.! I think he's dead-on correct with his effort to link poetry and science. It just makes sense, from fourteen directions. A letter-to-the-Editor in the most recent issue of Ecotoxicology (Springer) makes this point to hard-core scientists, too. (see http://www.springerlink.com/content/c47111v165310337/).

Vancouver Opera took this

Vancouver Opera took this very idea and created an opera for kids called (coincidental to your comment) Jack Pine. It taught kids to see the world in both scientific and poetic ways. It was a big hit all across British Columbia just this last school year.
