The average citizen, regardless of country, is unaware of the looming world-wide food crisis which grows as we speak. Despite the sting of higher food prices over the last year, this problem will soon affect every single one our lives.
This is a significant national security problem. It is a multi-faceted and complex issue. The good news is if we can get our fellow citizens and leaders to pay attention to the problem, we can avoid a future problem that may make the current economical issues seem like a walk in the park.
The New York Times has published an article titled FARMER IN CHIEF.
If you eat food, this article is important to you. It is an easy read and not that long given the wide range of information relayed. The most liberating thing any of us can do is become educated on the topics that directly affect us, our loved ones, and the environment. This article does that. I hope everyone will take the time to read it so we can understand the problems, the solutions, and have the information necessary to inform others. The public has to become educated on this topic.
