More harbingers of farmland stress
The Associated Press published an interesting book review about "Perilous Bounty" written by Thomas Philpott (https://apnews.com/c1067da270ae3c2dc023788bb2aec858). I confess that I haven't read the book yet but the themes described in the review are familiar to those who follow the issues related to sustainable food and agriculture. For example, the availability of water. In the west water is an increasingly critical issue. According to an article in The Denver Post on August 30th, "Federal data last week placed 93% of Colorado in “severe,” “extreme” or “exceptional” drought ." The article was written about the San Luis Valley and paints a dire picture of their water supply.
