I came across this great article by Tamar Haspel in the Washington Post who depicts beautifully the dogmatic debate on food and agriculture and why it’s necessary to move away from it. Haspel analyzes the effects of modern conventional agriculture, locally grown food and anti-GMO, or organic farming. Farming and the world’s agricultural landscape is not a black and white topic. There are many factors which lead in to safe and sustainable farming.
Haspel discusses our current options, and how feeding people and protecting the planet is a topic that is “irredeemably gray”. With such balance and so eloquently presented, one must read this article and wonder – is there a single way to solve our sustainable agricultural problems?
