Earth Policy Institute: Podcast

Podcast of Lester Brown discussing the trends in China’s agriculture sector, including expanding deserts, the overpumping of aquifers, and the paving over of farmland for a rapidly growing automobile fleet, that are undermining the country’s ability to meet its food needs with its own harvest. Together with rising oil prices—now linked to the price of grain through biofuels, namely ethanol—such trends could set world food prices soaring to new highs. Posted Thursday, March 24, 2011.
