Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Unspinning the web of spider-goat
Institute for Science in Society - 2/20/2012.
By Dr. Mae-Wan Ho – Within the past two years, a concerted media campaign has been launched to promote the ‘spider-goat’, a goat genetically engineered to produce spider silk proteins in its milk.
The Nonsense of Biofuels
Angewandte Chemie International Edition - 2/20/2012.
By Hartmut Michel – Fossil fuels, like mineral oil, coal, and natural gas, are derived from the biomass of ancient times. As such, they are indirect products of photosynthesis. It is therefore appropriate to ask whether we can use currently available biomass and convert it into biofuels like biodiesel and biogas.
When the hop fields come to town
Transition Culture - 2/20/2012.
By Rob Hopkins – The idea is a simple one: rather than breweries in London buying their hops from wherever they can source them (sometimes as far afield as New Zealand), people across London grow hops in their back gardens, on their patios and balconies, allotments and community gardens, which are then used by local brewers.
They might be giants
Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/19/2012.
By Ray Routhier – To the casual giant pumpkin fan – those of us who gawk open-mouthed at 700-pound specimens on display at Maine fairs each fall – the appeal would seem to be simply the size. "Wow, that's a big pumpkin," folks say approvingly to each other when they see the fair's prize-winning behemoths.
