Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A ‘habitual offender’unleashes nearly half a billion salmonella-tainted eggs
Grist - 8/19/2010.
By Tom Philpott – As a jaded observer of the livestock industry, I just sighed when I learned the scale of the current salmonella-tainted egg recall: 380 million eggs, distributed under 10 different brands in 17 different states, all from a single producer – Iowa-based Wright County Farms. Another day, another industrial-ag gaffe imperiling the health of millions. But then William Neuman's New York Times piece hipped me to the name of the owner of Wright County Farms: one Austin "Jack" DeCoster. That's when my sigh became a gasp.
Three pillars of a food revolution
Grist - 8/19/2010.
Anna Lappe – A few years ago, I stumbled on a United Nations study that transformed how I think about the climate crisis. In the report, researchers pegged greenhouse gases from the livestock sector at 18 percent of total global emissions. Combine this with other aspects of our food chain – from agricultural chemical production to agribusiness driven deforestation to food waste rotting in landfills – and food and agriculture sector is responsible for nearly one third of the planet's manmade emissions.
Plant growth declining in warming world, despite predictions
SolveClimate.com - 8/19/2010.
By Matthew Berger – When Steve Running co-authored a 2003 paper that found warmer temperatures had led to increased plant growth over the preceding two decades, he expected that terrestrial net plant productivity – "which is really just plant growth" – would continue to rise with temperatures. The warmer temperatures did continue, making 2000 to 2009 the warmest decade on record, but plant growth actually declined.
Amish silo team
Kennebec Journal - 8/18/2010.
Amish men carry some of the 1,100 concrete blocks Tuesday that they removed from a silo at the Fuller Farm, owned by Cindy and Bob Phillips, in Wayne. The eight men, from Aroostook County, are razing four silos at farms in Kennebec and Androscoggin counties this week with the intent of rebuilding them at dairy spreads in Fort Fairfield and Easton.
