I love infographics. Done well, infographics take overwhelming data and condense it into an easily digestible and beautiful to look at format. While very US focused, I assume much of the principals outlined in eLocal's snazy presentation on the environment, social, and economic impacts of local economies if highly applicable to us here in Canada.
Barry Estabrook of The Atlantic wrote a well reasoned rebuttal to the common argument against the viability of organic agriculture to feed the word. Estabrook does a decent job siting the evidence that shows organics are not just viable, but imperative. In sum:
Given that the current food production system, which is really a 75-year-old experiment, leaves nearly one billion of the world's seven billion humans seriously undernourished today, the onus should be on the advocates of agribusiness to prove their model can feed a future population of nine billion -- not the other way around.
