"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Gary Paul Nabhan is hot on the trail of climate change
The Boston Globe - 6/30/2011.
By Aaron Kagan – Patagonia, Arizona: A lesser known symbol of climate change is the chili pepper. In a new book “Chasing Chiles: Hot Spots Along the Pepper Trail,’’ Gary Paul Nabhan examines the relationship between food production and global warming through the chili pepper.

The promise of high profits, and a perverse federal commodity subsidy system that rewards intensive mono-cropping, is just too good to resist.
Time to end the chemical war against superweeds
Greenpeace International - 6/30/2011.
