“Lord, we aren’t going to have any bacon this Saturday for breakfast.”
Every Saturday morning, Neil and I make a special breakfast for the boys: pancakes and bacon (eggs with cheese for me). 1,526 more words
argylesock says... I like the way James C. Scott explains food sovereignty and food security in this lecture. He remarks on how we humans rely, mostly, on only three food sources: maize (corn, Zea mays), rice (Oryza sativa) and wheat (Triticum spp.) which lend themselves to large-scale growing and transport. He says that we (Homo sapiens) are the most invasive of all species. However, I don't like the way he says human population is 'spiralling.' That's a myth as I've stated on this blog several times. Globally, the human population is expected to peak at around 9 billion around the middle of this century. Then it's expected to fall slightly. [Edit] I listened again and found that Prof Scott doesn't in fact use the word 'spiralling' in this lecture.
