“We are going to have to produce as much food in the next 50 years as was produced over the past 5,000 years. Nothing less will do.”

Finally, people are getting it and some work is being done to address this vital issue.

Sad that our government has sent a huge contingent to the “non-event” regarding climate change and not one word has been “wasted” by the government on dry land salinity or pesticide use or GM crop use or oil dependent intensive farming or a dozen other topics regarding our long term food security, but then what do you expect from our dim-bulb government? 

It’s troubling that overseas hedge funds are buying cattle stations in Oz (according to today’s AFR) and the government doesn’t care.  I would have thought food security would be part of the national interest test.

Perhaps not.
