    Complexity of the food chain in CONUS

    A new article at the Survivalblog links to a study analyzing the food chain from field to table in every county in CONUS. Its pretty complicated, and not easy reading, but if you persevere it provides interesting information on choke points and major distribution centers nationwide. See the original article here (https://iopscience.iop.org/article/1...48-9326/ab29ae), and a commentary at Fast Company here (https://www.fastcompany.com/90422553...-mind-boggling),

    If you're concerned about food security (see the Woodpile Report at http://www.woodpilereport.com/html/index-600.htm) than this should concern you because its a very useful targeting document for enemies intent on using food as a weapon.

    Just one more thing to keep in mind if you're preparing for hard times.

    Working at a grocery store as a youth, I figured that any city has only a few days' worth of food in it.

    Fortunately, Hurricane Harvey didn't cause major disruption, or millions would have gone hungry.
