I found something interesting in a Google check on books containing the term "permaculture." In the book Organic Lies: Misconceptions of the United States Organic Act in America and the World, the author, Mary Choate, say the the following: Uh... yup. Well, what the lies are is not specified, but if they were, debunking the author's evidence would be fun. What the asserted lack of logic is (i.e. specifically what formal or informal fallacies are inherent to permaculture) is unspecified, but I'll go toe to toe with any person on this planet when it comes to logical debate, so perhaps it's best the author chose not to provide any sort of evidence to back her claims. Reason? Well, thats taken by many to mean logic, but can mean rhetoric. But as there is no explanation or evidence, it need not be addressed. As for an antagonism to science, she apparently has not taken a look at the Manual (or blogs like mine). As for the rest, it is such an affront to English grammar that I cannot comment for fear of making a straw man fallacy. I can say this though: the publishing house might want to hire an editor.
