Natural resources of minerals and food

a missing link in agency

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution

Abstract

Life in all its forms depends everywhere on the products of the earth. At a human level, food must be wrung from the soil and the artifacts of civilization from the oil and minerals that are found within it. At the level of politics and public policy, these two broad necessities are increasingly seen to conflict, as when mining explorations encroach on farming land or when biofuels supplant production for food.
