If you haven't seen the report in the Economist on the need for new technologies to feed the word - then you must. The link is here: http://www.economist.com/node/18200606/print
Long has it been an issue for me that the mainstream media follows the mantra that technologies like GM are bad - not taking the time to really understand what new technologies there are out there and how they might help square the circle of too many mouths, environmental constraints, sustainability etc. This feature is great - the journalist(s) have taken the time to understand, to communicate and to explore the arguments for an against.
Well done The Economist!
