This page was hijacked by disruptive editors including User:Sadi Carnot (see the discussion at Talk:Biological thermodynamics). "Sadi Carnot" has been systematically adding disruptive edits to Wikipedia over a long period of time. User:Sadi Carnot created bogus articles containing original research and many links to the editor's personal website and self-published work on pseudoscientific theories. Starting with pages such as Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Human chemistry, the bogus editing is in the process of being fully discovered and removed from Wikipedia. "Sadi Carnot" also had another account: User:Wavesmikey. Scientific bioenergetics as described in the original and current versions of the article is the subject of tens of thousands of peer-reviewed articles in the biomedical literature. Bioenergetic analysis is a fringe subject without support from reliable sources. --JWSchmidt 04:54, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
What Kind of Energy?
This article, and Wikipedia in general, is as shy as to naming the particular kind of energy, as a channelled new-age grand master. Vague mentions of "fire," calorimetric bomb, and oxidation remind me of the 1890's books I've read. Can someone knowledgeable, and hopefully not too strongly associated with the pinheaded mainstream, provide an answer? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:36, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
This "Bioenergetics" page needs a rewrite
As it now stands, anyone reading the "Bioenergetics" page without previous knowledge of the topic will only be confused. (See previous talker's frustration.) A few weeks ago I began adding a new section, "Gibbs Free Energy." But it got bogged down. Then I realized the whole Wiki article needed to be rewritten. Unfortunately, I lack the time (and energy ;) so today I removed my section since, without a total rewrite, my contribution just added to the confusion. Aside from a few minor changes, I've left the page in all its orginal glory.
