"Feeding Ten Billion : The world just got its seven billionth citizen, and the population explosion shows no signs of stopping. In a Saskatoon lecture, writer and activist Raj Patel argues that the only way to feed everyone is to completely rethink agriculture."

I just finished listening to this Excellent podcast . its great to hear some of the stuff we talk about here make it out into the mainstream media!

who said it was desirable? I think what Patel is arguing is if we don't totally rethink how we feed ourselves we won't even be able to feed the current 7 billion.
