More doom and gloom about world food prices
Everyone seems to be worried about world food prices these days, apparently for good reason.
The USDA is projecting equally bad news for the prices of agricultural commodities. These are expected to reach record levels through 2020.
Time Magazine says biofuels are a big factor in rising food prices.
And the United Nations is warning that climate change is the ultimate driver of this problem as well as other causes of world instability.
The good news is that all of this leaves plenty of things for food advocates to work on. Get busy!
