Several factors are conspiring to weaken the reliability of our food production systems, warns Christian Westbrook, publisher of the website IceAgeFarmer.com
We’re seeing a shortening of the growing season for important crops due to weather trends and changes in the solar cycle.
Our food production system, which is highly dependent on chemical inputs and fossil fuels, is becoming increasingly brittle.
And we have more vulnerability due to the global nature of modern food supply chains. Crop shortages/failures in one part of the world impact all markets now.
