Fall 2009: Climate Change & Agriculture
In this issue of the PAN Magazine you’ll find science, analysis and stories at the nexus of agriculture, pesticides and climate change. We detail the links between farming systems and climate, and the impacts climate change will have on global toxics. The good news is that ecological agriculture and food sovereignty—solutions PAN and our partners have been promoting for decades as the antidote to pesticide and corporate dependence—can both feed the world and cool the planet. The bad news is that the same agrichemical corporations that brought us toxic pesticides and industrial food are offering technological fixes that, as we’ve seen already, will fail to deliver, leaving communities and our planet in debt.
