Food! Glorious Food!

Professor Tim Lang has been quoted in this BBC report as saying: "There is a real, fundamental problem emerging in food policy that, frankly, has been under-recognised."

This response was prompted by the Government's new chief science adviser Professor John Beddington saying today: "A world food crisis can be expected in the coming decades as our demand for food outstrips our ability to produce it. The crisis could be as serious as climate change and may hit sooner."

Well, I don't want to say "I told you so" but last September I did just that.
