I really look forward to the Odd Lots podcast every week. They always manage to find interesting topics and let their guests do the talking. This week they interviewed an alfalfa farmer in Arizona, and it didn’t seem so crazy, despite all the doom and gloom about water and heat in the news. What struck me as a bit crazy was not that this very well spoken owner of a family farm was doing it in Arizona, but that all his crop was going to feed cows. There is a market for this because we eat too much meat. The era of cheap meat likely needs to end if we’re going to take a successful multi-pronged approach to blunting climate change.
