A variety of interesting posts that accumulated over the long weekend.
First, more horrors in the world of the international food supply. It seems things are getting worse more quickly, and that the 2008 food crisis was not a blip but a portent.
A long (too long, and too, well, British) but well-assembled BBC radio story that links peak oil and cows.
An interview with Lester Brown about natural disasters and their effect on food prices.
Plus: How do soldiers from different countries eat in the field? A photo essay from the Times’s Week in Review.
Finally, Paul Greenberg’s Week in Review piece responding to the “good” news that there have been strides in raising bluefin tuna in captivity. (Hint: It’s not as simple as all that.)
