Locavore, organic food, biotech and Vandana Shiva
I thought I would write a little blurb about food given all the hoopla about Michelle Obama and her organic garden. Yes, Monsanto and Dupont are freaking out that the first family is endorsing the locavore and organic food movements. If you are interested in the future of food you have to read Vandana Shiva. She is a scholar, physicist, and eco feminist who has written some amazing books on the subject.
Her books are about biotechnology, bioethics and genetic engineering in relation to agriculture and food. If you think the holy wars are bad, wait until there is no food or water to feed the world. Vandana offers her expertise. A very cool lady. A list of her books, WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND:
STOLEN HARVEST:THE HIJACKING OF THE GLOBAL FOOD SUPPLY
WATER WARS: PRIVATIZATION, POLLUTION AND PROFIT
SOIL NOT OIL: ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE IN AN AGE OF CLIMATE CRISES
EARTH DEMOCRACY: JUSTICE, SUSTAINABILITY, AND PEACE.
