"Attention has focused on oil insecurity, and rightly so, but it is not the same as food insecurity. An empty gas tank is one thing, an empty stomach another. And while there are substitutes for oil, there are none for food." –Lester R. Brown, Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization.
Lester Brown interviewed on long-term food trends in Steven Mufson's article 'A Global Effort to Keep Food Prices from Soaring Higher' for the The Washington Post. Posted January 14, 2011.
