You may just want to check out where your rice is coming from.

I’m old enough to remember the shock and awe at the sci-fi flik “Soylent Green” where good ‘ol Chas Heston discovered that the food solution for the over-crowded, polluted and no longer productive earth was to re-process the dead and dying into “Soylent Green” chips – food from the bodies of the dead.

It was truly a “camp” film and it quickly became¬† (and still is) a kind of classic symbol of our over-crowded earth, the stretching of our limited resources by rampant, unthinking over-population. The thing is – back in the 1970’s it was still campy sci-fi.¬† The world population was just clicking over 3 billion and although for those who were paying attention, the red flags were starting to pop up regarding over-population, underproduction of food, crop failures and starvation, most people were complacent and happily ignorant.
