Description
Food is the new oil, says Lester Brown; and land is the new gold. The author of the Plan B series of books, the president of the Earth Policy Institute, and "one of the pioneers and heroes of global environmentalism" (E.O. Wilson), Brown argues that, with food scarcity driven by falling water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures, control of arable land is moving to the center of the world's pressing concerns. "The ability to grow food is fast becoming a new form of geopolitical leverage," he writes. With wisdom accumulated over decades of tracking agricultural issues, he outlines the implications of land acquisitions by grain-importing countries in Africa and elsewhere, as well as the world's shrinking buffers against poor harvests, illuminating the increasingly volatile food situation the world is facing.
