If you were cryogenically frozen in the early 1970s, like Woody Allen was in Sleeper, and brought back to life today, you would obviously find much changed about the world.

Just my casual observation, but it seems to me the author is in deep denial & afraid someone will take away his toys.

Interesting Kathy, as I thought the author was intentionally trying to show us that while we sleep, the world is dying.

Well Kit, maybe it's just my anti-GMO, anti-nuke power bias rearing it's ugly head :)

Ah, I doubt that, Kathy and I think it lies in reading the many internal links to really open this article to better scrutiny.

This has been a growing problem for 30+ years. Many forget about the theft of private farms during the 80's and early 90's. Just like the so-called collapse of the housing market now. Suddenly, family farms were an open target for all outstanding loans. Farmers lived on loans that got through one season to the next, they were rarely wealthy. What I find most interesting is the great desire to forget that organic farmers are not really all that organic, as the use of pesticides and fertilizers still ruins the environment.

I don't necessarily support nor condemn the views of this article but found it to offer a lot of research information. GMOs it tells us are not feeding the world any better then single family farms.

"“The rapidly warming Earth and the collapse of ecosystem services show that economic “degrowth” in overdeveloped countries is essential and urgent. Degrowth is the intentional contraction of overly inflated economies and the dispelling of the myth that perpetual pursuit of growth is good for economies or the societies of which they are a part.”
