Food Rules: Michael Pollan on the Problems of Using Industrial Agriculture for Fuel – an RSA Animated Lecture

 

One of the most inspiring and brilliant minds of our time, Michael Pollan speaks with a sense of truth not commonly found in our era of dis-information and corporate high-jacked  press. In Food Rules — an amazing animated short and book — Pollan speaks about the challenges of a world that has enough land to feed everybody, and the ways in which industrial agriculture is corrupting our future, polluting our fertile soil, and  manifesting  world hunger for the sake of cheap fuel.

This animated video was the winner of the 2012 short film competition sponsored by the organization RSA/Nominet Trust film. Michael Pollan is a modern thinker on agriculture and the fate of our world, as well as the author of several thought-provoking books on the politics of food and botany. His work includes: Food Rules: An Eaters Manual (2010), The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (2006), and The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World (2001).
