Peak Food? Peak Water?
From the folks Down Under, who are currently dealing with drought and water issues, comes a commentary on the future of food production. The Peak Oilers know about this, there are those at The Oil Drum who have commented on the impact of fossil fuels on food production (NG for some fertilizers, oil for liquid transport fuel). The Aussies are having a tough go, especially in the Melbourne area. I would still like to visit, but not sure I would want to live there. Folks in San Francisco, who recall bricks in the toilet tank to reduce the amount of water per flush, would likely understand the pain.
