WATCH: Rebecca Hosking: Post-Peak Farming

Posted By dpacheco On March 31, 2009 @ 4:55 am In Garden & Agriculture | No Comments

This really fascinating film by farmer Rebecca Hosking is a must-watch for anyone concerned about the future of farming in a post peak oil world. Rebecca, a nature photographer and filmmaker, returns to her small childhood farm, where she becomes aware of the looming oil crisis and how it will affect not just her farm, but all farms, and indeed the world’s food supply. To paraphrase one farmer, we’re approaching not just another energy crisis, but a full-blown energy famine. It’s time to look at our options.

RH: Basically, this sandwich, like most of the food that we’re eating today, is absolutely dripping in oil. And the way that our food production is today, if we didn’t have places like this [points to a fuel processing plant], then in this country we’d pretty much starve.
