Two recent articles in the Seattle Times might raise some concern if you connect the dots. The first was a article about how big investors are buying up farm land. This has driven up the value in some areas, more than threefold in the last ten years. When big money interests, that have control of both the price of commodities (wall street) and the production of those same commodities (farms), the price of food will skyrocket. No good will come from this. Add into this a completely separate story on over fishing and some species of fish may already be depleted beyond a point of recovery. Fishing catches may start a steep decline. Both stories tie together very nicely, but on in a good way. Have we already passed the total number of people that this planet can support????
