An Open Letter to the Farmer in Chief

Highly recommended: “Dear Mr. Next Presi­dent,” an excellent review of the need to transition to local and organic ­agriculture, written by Michael Pollan, which ­appeared in the Oct. 12, 2008 issue of the New York Times Magazine.

Pollan’s piece is long but incisive, a well-informed appraisal of climate change and food security challenges. You can find it at:
