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.
