Episode-422- The Damage Done By Agriculture

We rely on our modern agriculture system to feed the planet.  While most people in the modern world seem to believe food comes from a store it most certainly does not.  The bright lights and shiny packaging at the grocery is simply the last step in a long chain of systems.

Join me today as we discuss the following recent news stories about this problem…

Episode-190- Is a Global Food Shortage Inevitable?

My view is yes, sooner or later it is inevitable due to declines in production and resources and expansion of population.  I also think we should not engage in alarmism at this point either.  Much like peak oil this is a real problem that will get worse but over a rather long period of time, not tomorrow morning.

Today we also briefly discuss the defection of Republican Arlen Spector and we do another swine flu (h1n1) update.

Tune in today to hear…
