Food bubble economy. Citat av Bill McKibben

"We have created a food bubble economy. Just as we have built our industrial economy on cheap oil, so have we managed to artificially inflate food production by an unsustainable reliance on underground water. The pumping of groundwater has generated tremendous crop yields....but when the water starts to run dry, that free ride is over and farmers will have to return to growing what they can with the water that falls on their regions."
