Eat With Your Head

Food. Energy. Shrimp.

It has been way too long since I last blogged. But the good news is I started a new job that involves animals and global warming — both of which, of course, are intimately connected to food issues.

When things are messed up the way they are now, when we’re stuck down a path that seems terribly wrong, it’s time to think of some alternatives. Here’s a story of a former shrimp farmer who decided to switch his business from harvesting marine life to generating biofuels through algae.

While so far algae-based biofuel has not faced the same political scrutiny as food crop fuels, Wood’s decision presents an interesting situation where he’s choosing to produce algae instead of shrimp.

Nothing dirty or fossil-like about these
Maybe algae fuel will pose problems similar to the ethanol dilemna. But at least this farmer saw something that wasn’t working, and decided to create an alternative instead. So just a thought that we need to take solutions seriously to start building a future with cleaner air and better food (just read the article to find out what other countries do with their shrimp.)
