Rising food prices and land use
Interesting column by Ross Clark at Timesonline.co.uk this morning -- We Can Feed the Word: Just Look at All the Space. Clark suggests using Google Earth to get a sense of how much space there is and how little of it is being used for agriculture.
Globally, less food is being produced on even less land than was the case in the early 1990s.
Ross Clark is the author of How to Label a Goat: the Silly Rules and Regulations that are Strangling Britain
