Two views of food supply

My daily observations in this small corner of the planet tell me this article which predicts “increasing food prices, leading to political instability, spreading hunger and, unless governments act, a catastrophic breakdown in food” is 100 per cent bull excrement.

I hope this is  right.

However, I have long worried that the North American food factory could easily break down in which case my daily observations would change quickly.

We tend to forget or ignore things which for us are not an immediate problem.  Agriculture and food are so important we should probably be paying a lot of attention to what is happening on the farm.  It is much too important to leave to those in the industry.
