New Resources: Gas Drilling and Livestock, Farming and Democracy, earthopensource, and the ETC group.
Four new resources have been added to the Agriculture resources page. Impacts of Gas Drilling on Human and Animal Health (2012) documents harmful health effects of gas drilling on livestock and humans living near gas wells and suggests multiple risks for healthy food and agriculture. Too Few Farms and These Too Large (2012) argues large scale farming undermines democracy with far reaching consequences for human health and rural communities. The websites earthopensource and the ETC group produce important agriculture-related resources on topics including genetic engineering, food sovereignty, intellectual property rights, and sustainable solutions.
