Doubling food production by 2050
La Vida Locavore - 3/3/2011.
By Jill Richardson – Have you heard that we need to double food production by 2050 in order to feed a population of 9 billion people? I have. I've heard it ad nauseum. Today, I was reading through some transcripts from the 2009 Borlaug Dialogues, and nearly every speaker noted that we need to double food production by 2050 but no one cited their source. I started Googling and ended up emailing colleagues for the original source of this figure. And, to the best of my knowledge, THERE ISN'T ONE. That's right. No source.
He keeps ancient apples fresh and crisp
The New York Times - 3/3/2011.
By Anne Raver – On a cold sunny morning last month, Creighton Lee Calhoun Jr. stood in his orchard, surrounded by 300 heirloom apple trees, and took some cuttings, or scions, to graft onto rootstock for new trees.
The good, the bad, the ugly from the food world
Portland Press Herald - 3/3/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – With its vibrant health food scene, robust organic farming sector and tradition of self-sufficiency, Maine can easily be viewed as an oasis of natural eats. However, the wider world does creep into our local affairs, meaning it never hurts to occasionally take a peek at the latest national and international food happenings.
Scientists Discover New Route for GM-gene 'Escape'
Institute for Science in Society - 3/3/2011.
By Dr. Mae-Wan Ho – Scientists at Bristol University in the UK announced the discovery of [1] “a previously unknown route” whereby “GM genes may escape into the natural environment.” “Escape” is a misnomer. There is no need for the GM (genetically modified) genes to “escape”, when genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been released in great abundance and with gay abandon into the environment over the past 17 years. At issue is how fast and how widely the GM genes can spread, and what dire consequences could arise.
