"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.
Article and podcast: Lester Brown giving the 2009 Peter Roberts Memorial Lecture, "How Can We Feed the World and Protect the Environment," sponsored by Compassion in World Farming. Presented in London on October 29, 2009.
