Runaway Food System

January 15, 2009

“Experts are increasingly concerned about what they call our runaway food system. The way we produce food today has radically changed, and now has the power to alter life as we know it almost by accident. Farming chemicals like pesticides and weed killer are permanently altering our soil and water. Genetic engineering is changing the nature of the plants and animals we eat. And mile-long fishing nets are dragging the ocean floor and altering ecosystems. America needs to take control of this runaway food system before it does more damage to the foundations we depend on.” http://www.hollyworks.com/frameworks/course/
