Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Antique heaters still draw followers
Kennebec Journal - 12/5/2011.
By Tux Turkel – Thorndike: Trimmed in shiny nickel for looks, faced with clear, mica windows for viewing the fire, the Riverside coal stove is a beauty. It's relatively efficient, too, with a "base burner" design featuring a hopper that can gravity-feed 100 pounds of fuel into the firebox. This was cutting-edge technology when the stove was built – in the mid-1800s.
A Maine farmer speaks to Wall Street
The New York Times - 12/5/2011.
By Julia Moskin – Jim Gerritsen lives a far piece from New York City, in a remote part of northern Maine that what was once known as the Potato Empire. But there he was on Sunday – at age 56 making his first trip to the city – to speak at the Farmers March on Wall Street.
Carbon dioxide emissions break growth records
CBC News - 12/5/2011.
Global carbon dioxide emissions hit a record 9.1 billion tonnes in 2010, after a year of the highest growth ever, a new study has found. "This is the highest total annual growth recorded, and the highest annual growth rate since 2003," reported an analysis by the Global Carbon Project published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Organic can feed the world
The Atlantic - 12/5/2011.
By Barry Estabrook – As a journalist who takes issues surrounding food production seriously, it drives me crazy that agribusiness advocates such as Steve Kopperud (and, more recently, Steve Sexton of Freakonomics) dismiss well-thought-out concerns about today's dysfunctional food production system with the old saw that organic farming can't save the world. They persist in repeating this as an irrefutable fact, even as one scientific study after another concludes the exact opposite: not only that organic can indeed feed nine billion human beings but that it is the only hope we have of doing so.
