Applying science to society

In academia there's always the purists (or theorists) versus the applied people. The former deals with concepts and often intangibles and some might even say untestables. The latter (and I fall very much into this group) is concerned with applying knowledge to the real world.

I was really pleased to find this site: http://www.i-sis.org.uk/susag.php

Basically it's scientists helping us to understand and argue for/against different applications of science.

There are articles about organic cotton and organic farming:
