Reality Report: Michael Bomford Interview

What does a modern, productive food system without fossil fuels look like and how might we get there? In this episode of The Reality Report, host Jason Bradford speaks with Michael Bomford of Kentucky State University. Mike discusses his research on the energy and labor inputs of different farming methods and covers much of the information contained in the booklet “The Food and Farming Transition" co-authored with Richard Heinberg.

You can also follow Mike Bomford at his blog, where he updates his research results and comments on news and academic papers related to energy and the food system.
