The oil we eatThis piece by Richard Manning in Harper's Magazine back in 2004 is simply one of the best articles I have ever read. It is the clearest explanation I have seen describing the nexus between cheap energy and the global food supply. Read it and weep. Read it and think. Think hard. In the end it will all boil down to our ability to feed ourselves. If you are under the illusion that food comes from the grocery store you may not get this. The change is coming faster than we think. It is time to get to know your farmer.
