Michael Pollan
June 8, 2007
Even if you're not a farmer, journalist Michael Pollan says you should still pay attention to what is in the farm bill, which is up for renewal this year in Congress. Pollan, author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma," argues agricultural policy affects everything from the obesity epidemic to global warming to national security. Pollan made the case for a more "sustainable" food production system in an April 19 speech at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
