>But the article is on target, not because of "terrorism" but because the cost of fuel and food will keep rising. Since 90% of the cost of supermarket food is in fossil fuel costs, locally grown, naturally grown foods will soon become the only affordable food around. I think some on this list are well aware of the fertilizer and pesticide prices these days, not to mention gas for machinery and transport. All fossil fuel.
Right. I agree.
Also, foot-and-mouth disease, for instance, does not require
terrorism. There are other possible major disruptions of
our food supply that do not require terrorism.
