A couple of days ago I posted a blog about the The Vertical Farm Project from Columbia University. In the last few days, the idea has recieved considerable press coverage. There was a good Op-Ed in the New York Times which talked about this idea. Also an article in the Seattle Times. And here is an interesting piece in Next American City. A New York Times Article from 2008 covered the issue as well. For more in depth information, check out Dickson Despommier’s essays on vertical farming: Reducing the Impact of Agriculture on Ecosystem Functions and Services: PART ONE and PART TWO. You can also check out an interesting Video From Newsy.com (which analyzes news coverage of important issues from multiple sources).
