We need to produce 70% more food in next 40 years
Treehugger - 10/14/2009.
By Kristin Underwood – And the estimates of what it would take to get such a volume of food produced don't get any better.

Farm Workers and Allies Ask Gov't to Protect Kids From Toxic Pesticide Drift
Common Dreams - 10/14/2009.
The public interest law firms Earthjustice and Farmworker Justice filed a petition today (PDF) asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set safety standards protecting children who grow up near farms from the harmful effects of pesticide ‘drift' - the toxic spray or vapor that travels from treated fields. The groups are also asking the agency to immediately adopt no-spray buffer zones around homes, schools, parks and daycare centers for the most dangerous and drift-prone pesticides.

Bangor Daily News - 10/13/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Camden: Next Saturday, people all over the world will gather at places such as the Taj Mahal and the Great Barrier Reef to encourage government leaders to take action to fight climate change.

These and more than 25 other locations in Maine will hold events as part of the global 350.org climate change campaign, which was started by Vermont-based environmentalist and writer Bill McKibben.

Hundreds of people crowded along the shoreline for the pumpkin boat races, the pinnacle of Damariscotta's annual Pumpkin Fest.
