Which States have the Most Electric Cars?

Positive Future #332 (Feature photo – U.S. Army Neighborhood Electric Vehicles – Public Domain) It is not hard to guess that it is California. However, there are roughly 2.21 plug-in cars per 1,000 people in the U.S. That equates to roughly 720,000 plug-in cars nationwide. That number is set to grow quickly as plug-in sales in the U.S. in 2018 are estimated to exceed 350,000. InsideEVs provides the full story on all of the highest states. You can read the full story here: https://insideevs.com/state-plug-in-electric-cars-per-1000-residents/ Elsewhere in the world, China is moving ahead of every other nation in terms of its plug-in car sales. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgvWh_VbTW8 Want More? – Sign up below…

Touch the Soil News #1198 (Feature photo – Farmland – Public Domain) Should civilization strive to balance the size of the population via education and good stewardship with Earth’s finite resources? While the ethical, moral and religious debates can go on forever, there is one sector in our modern civilization that is certain that a collision of some sort is coming – the investment community.

Touch the Soil News #1196 (Feature photo – New York City – CCA 4.0 International) Someone once said that asking the right question is one of the most powerful game-changers.

Is PepsiCo on the Hunt for Nutritious Products?

Touch the Soil News #1195 (Feature photo – Pepsi – CCA 3.0 Unported) It is doubtful that PepsiCo will give up its sugary drinks anytime soon. However, perhaps what we are against is not as important as what we are for. A year ago, PepsiCo launched what it calls Nutrition Greenhouse. The plan is to find emerging brands that offer premium yet functional products that have health and nutrition benefits. What is surprising is the 10 companies that made the finalist list. Reading through the list makes one wonder if the world is – in some basic way – making progress.

Is Harvard University’s Land Grabbing Socially Responsible?

Touch the Soil News #1194 (Feature photo – Cuyama Valley, California – CCA SA 3.0 Unported) In a rather shocking revelation, the Wall Street Journal reports that Harvard University is quietly buying California farmland and water rights.

Owning the land and water allows an investor to hold a hungry humanity hostage to their prices. Harvard is paying prices for land that farmers cannot compete with in the Cuyama Valley in southern California.
