Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Building up the ‘grain chain’
Energy Bulletin - 12/23/2010.
By Colleen Kimmet – At 90 years old, Clipper is still as active as ever. She's had a few parts replaced, tuned and added, but she is still the same machine she was nearly a century ago. After sitting idle for several decades, she was on her way to the Chilliwack dump last year when Jim Grieshaber-Otto rescued and refurbished her to use at Cedar Isle, his 94-acre farm in Agassiz.
EIA projects climate catastrophe
Grist - 12/21/2010.
By Brad Johnson – The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has projected that the United States will lead the world into catastrophic global warming over the next twenty five years. In its 2011 Annual Energy Outlook, the EIA predicts that energy-related CO2 emissions will "grow by 16 percent from 2009 to 2035," reaching 6.3 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (or 1.7 GtC).
Springing to life, food safety bill charts a course to the president’s desk
Grist - 12/20/2010.
By Tom Philpott – I don't feel like getting into the details of a saga with more plots twists than a telenovela; or pontificating at length on a bill that's already had more analysis than Woody Allen's neuroses. Suffice to say that the Food Safety Modernization Act passed the Senate in a surprise Sunday vote and is headed back to the House, where it is widely expected to pass.
CAFO Farms Boost Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria, Study Says
Treehugger - 12/20/2010.
By Jeff Kart – CAFOS, aka concentrated animal feeding operations and factory or mega farms, are known for water pollution. What that pollution does, beyond being disgusting, is still being studied. The latest finding shows multi-drug resistance is more than three times greater near CAFOs than in agricultural streams not impacted by the farms.
