Nobel Prize winner Norman Borlaug dies at 95 - Yahoo! News
One of the greatest human beings to ever live passed away today...and most people have never even heard of him. I hope he is remembered more in death than he was during his life. RIP Mr. Borlaug.The Nobel committee honored Borlaug in 1970 for his contributions to high-yield crop varieties and bringing other agricultural innovations to the developing world. Many experts credit the green revolution with averting global famine during the second half of the 20th century and saving perhaps 1 billion lives.
