Dean’s blog: History shows: Innovation requires a recipe

Even before the science of combustion was fully understood, the earliest engineers empirically learned how to control fire. This innovation, some 500,000 years ago, became an essential basis for human advancement, but today it is also the culprit for global climate change. Innovation brings disruptive change, which brings good and bad.
