Interesting,...as Paul Harvey use to say, "And here's the rest of the story".

Nomad 's comment, March 14, 2013 11:26 AM
Yes, that the problem with so much pre-packaged, carefully selected news. To be fully informed, I think takes a lot of work and is next to impossible when there's a slant written in to the information.

Oil's average price posts new records and they’re telling us it’s abundant!

Oil's average price posts new records and they’re telling us it’s abundant! | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

It is a slick piece of public relations to convince people to disregard what is right in front of them and believe the opposite.  And yet, that is what the oil industry has achieved with an oh-so obviously coordinated campaign to tell the public and policymakers that there is no need to be concerned about future oil supplies.

With the increasing need to boost food production globally, we must also be asking the hard questions about sustainability and justice of the efforts to produce that food...

Sahm Timon McGinnity's curator insight, April 27, 11:19 PM

Paraguay's economy holds soy as its largest export, but the government is pushing for diversification in the exports.

People who have invested into cattle farming have taken serious deficits in the short run, and this industry will most likely fail without government subsidies in the long run.
