An open letter to the next farmer in chief

Michael Pollan outlines what the next president can and should do to remake the way we grow and eat our food.

There are many moving parts to the new food agenda I’m urging you to adopt, but the core idea could not be simpler: we need to wean the American food system off its heavy 20th-century diet of fossil fuel and put it back on a diet of contemporary sunshine.

Required reading as far as I’m concerned (like most of Pollan’s stuff).
