The Future of Food


Wired magazine has a great series of nine infographics from the November issue about the world's food supply problems.
Forty years ago, advances in fertilizers and pesticides boosted crop yield and fed a growing planet. Today, demand for food fueled by rises in worldwide consumption of meat and protein is again outpacing farmers ability to keep up. It's time for the next Green Revolution.
Thanks for the link Ethel!  Here are a few more.  Check them all out on Wired.com.

One of my favorite documentaries in recent years is"The Future of Food"-an in-depth look at what actually goes into making the food that ends up in your local grocery store.If you want to learn about genetically modified crops,patented pesticide-resistant seeds and the fall of the small-time farmer,you should check out this documentary.Luckily, a company called SnagFilms has made it available onlineā€¦for free.
