If Only American Kids Could Eat School Lunches Like They Do in France

If Only American Kids Could Eat School Lunches Like They Do in France | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

"The standard school lunch for an American child often contains dishes brimming with preservatives and sodium. While some schools have completelyoverhauled their school menus to contain fresh vegetables and grains, others stillstruggle with meeting nutritional guidelines. But for students in France, it appears that school lunches are the least of their concerns."

This Twenty-Something Hopes to Unleash the Next Green Revolution

This Twenty-Something Hopes to Unleash the Next Green Revolution | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

"Kempf eschews the phrase “sustainable” because that would imply there’s much worth sustaining about the current state of farming. Instead, he calls his approach “regenerative agriculture.” He occupies a curious niche, advocating that farmers ditch pesticides while simultaneously critiquing organic farming. Mainstream organic agriculture, says Kempf, is all about “negative certification” and is preoccupied with what farmers aren’t allowed to do – no GMOs, no chemical pesticides, no this, no that, etc. While that ensures that organic products are largely free of pesticides, it provides no assurance that crops in an organic farmer’s field are thriving, or that organic produce is healthier than its conventional counterparts, according to Kempf."

"God of Crude Oil Trading" Goes All In On Crude At $150 Bet | Zero Hedge

"God of Crude Oil Trading" Goes All In On Crude At $150 Bet | Zero Hedge | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
Andy Hall - known as the God of Crude Oil Trading to some of his peers - has, according to Bloomberg, built his success on a simple creed: Everyone who disagrees with him is wrong. He was one of the few traders who anticipated both the run-up in and the eventual crash of oil prices in 2008. Hall has made billions for the companies for which he’s traded by placing one aggressive bet after another; and now, he is all-in again. Hall is going all in on a bet that the shale-oil boom will play out far sooner than many analysts expect, resulting in a steady increase in prices to as much as $150 a barrel in five years or less. As one industry CEO warned, "anybody who bets against Andy Hall might be making a poor bet."

This Is What A More Sustainable American Food System Looks Like

This Is What A More Sustainable American Food System Looks Like | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

Let’s be real: The American food system today has some pretty daunting issues. We’re saddled with a farming system that, on the whole, releases a massive amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere (675 million metric tons annually at the most recent tally, to be exact), sucks nutrients from the soil, and leaches chemicals into the water table. And in regions with some of the richest farmland, historically speaking, you can’t buy a fresh vegetable for love or money — but you can get a two-liter bottle of potable sugar and an endless variety of nutritionally vacant foodstuff approximations at any corner store. To that end, we find ourselves in the midst of a dietary and environmental crisis. We could ask, “How did we get here?”, but I’m not trying to answer that question. There are many possible culprits at whom we could point fingers, but what’s much, much more important is how we get ourselves out of this mess.
