Thought of the Week

Everything else – culture, art and science – depends upon adequate agricultural production.
Obscured in prosperous time, such connections become starkly apparent when agriculture falters.

Although usually portrayed as natural disasters,
crop failures and famines often owe as much to land abuse
as to natural calamities.
