“Industrial agriculture receives government subsidies on a huge scale that makes it cost-effective for farmers to burn the equivalent of 400 gallons of oil a year for every person fed – so that simply feeding America expends 120 billion gallons of oil a year, more than most countries consume for all purposes.”
-Edward Humes, Eco Barons

I know, I know, the whole eco[insert word] thing is getting really old. But, man, we're all so damn overfed. It's shameful.
