Why our agricultural empire will fall - Sustainable food - Salon.com
A review of "Empires of Food - Feast, Famine, and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations" by Evan Fraser and Andrew Rimas.
"There is a really interesting tension at play here. In order for us to produce food locally or use fewer fertilizers or pay better wages, we need people to be more interested in what they're eating and where it's coming from. But in the West, this has turned food into a fashion item. Instead, we need them to be invested in food without trivializing it or turning it into a trend. We need to think about unsexy but ultimately more practical solutions, like food storage and maintaining food capacity, if we want to protect ourselves for the future." Riddhi Shaw
