Mother Jones has a long piece on alternative forms of agriculture. I won’t try and summarize the article, but it hits a lot of pet obsessions of mine: the limits of organic and local food and the existence of environmentally friendly alternatives to organic food, written from a perspective that’s sympathetic to the broad goals of the organic movement. (Side note: I didn’t really find the associated Michael Pollan interview to be that great. He’s probably overextended).
Apologies that this and the last post were glorified link posts. I’ve mostly tried to stop doing that, unless the link is too good, or I have something to add. Otherwise, I’ve been sticking links I want to share in the sidebar. For those who have the privilege of reading what I share on google reader, the lists partially overlap, but are non-identical.
