Climate change is bringing a sharp increase in heat stress-related illness and death among farmworkers. Farmworkers, not any official government agency, have created the most effective program to protect themselves.

“A small fraction of relatively wealthy farmers disproportionately benefits from USDA financial assistance like disaster relief and price loss coverage. We’re grateful to the members of the Equity Commission for their work and dedication to making our food and farm system fairer and more just.”

“What I like about this movement is that it is so positive. I think it’s awfully important to remind people when they feel no hope that there are wonderful solutions that don’t involve deprivation. [Regenerative agriculture] produces food that’s really delicious and much better for you.“

“Accounting gimmicks disguise a poorly run offset scheme as a “magic” carbon-negative climate solution. California needs to phase out credits for “avoided methane pollution,” refocus on transportation, and get to work developing a more suitable regulation for pollution from dairies.”

The crux of the matter:

“The most powerful forces arrayed against natural asset companies were people who wanted land to remain available for uses like coal mining and oil drilling, a fundamental disagreement about what’s good for the world.”

From avant-garde agriculture to avant-garde music…

“At the time, Malone was studying sustainable agriculture and experimenting with barter systems — “I thought I was going to become a farmer” — but a chance meeting scuttled those plans.”

How many years does it take to get a PhD? It depends on the field, but it is ~ 10% of US life expectancy.

When adding 17 y for the typical pre-graduate school educational track, it is ~ ⅓ US life expectancy (data also show that higher educational attainment correlates with greater lifespan.)

“Large farms – which includes mega operations with hundreds of thousands of acres – account for only 4% of the total number of farms, but control two-thirds of US agricultural land. The largest – with sales of $5m or more – accounted for fewer than 1% of all farms but 42% of all sales.”

“The case came down to whether people who appear to be incapable of incorporating evidence into their opinions should still be able to voice those opinions without consequences, even if doing so has consequences for others. In the end, the jury decided they did not.”

“For every woman who manages to defy gender stereotypes and make a career in science, thousands don’t, because they are discouraged by teachers or by parents, lack enough confidence to take the first step, or are denied adequate healthcare and reproductive rights.”

‘While climate researchers were early targets of people rejecting peer-reviewed science, attacks have spread to biomedical scientists, supercharged by the COVID-19 pandemic. Young people, looking at how scientists are attacked are going to say, 'Well, why do I want to go into this profession?’”

Translation: Immigrants do work the native work force won’t deign to do, or is too uneducated to perform.

“Research on the economic impact of immigration fails to find negative effects on employment and wages. Instead, immigrant workers turn out to be complementary to the native-born work force.”

“One of my fave quirks is when you use the Vision Pro in one room and then go to another, open the same app, and you have to find it by looking all around the room; sometimes it’s on the ceiling or the floor. I couldn’t find my text app the other day and turned around to find it was in my bathroom.”
