In this interview, I speak with Mark Schapiro, author of Seeds of Resistance: The Fight to Save Our Food Supply.
SEEDS OF RESISTANCE is an expose of the high-stakes battle underway for control of the world’s seeds as climate volatility threatens the security of our food supply. Three-quarters of the seed varieties on earth in 1900 are now extinct. I investigate what it means that more than half of the commercial seeds which remain are owned by three agri-chemical companies. And I tell colorful and surprising stories from the global movement that is defying the companies and offering alternatives capable of surviving the accelerating climatic changes.
