Wikistrat's "The World According to Tom Barnett" 2011 brief, Part 5 (Flow of Food)

In this section of the brief I explore water and how it connects to grain-production centers of gravity, how climate change will impact the flow of food, how that flow will surpass the flow of energy in global importance in the future, and how the Western Hemisphere evolves as a result of its incredible water advantage.

This type of analysis reminds me of Anthony Kennedy's history -- it's all about calories. Don't even call it food.

I have been to Canada many times. Some beautiful and rugged country. We may eventually develop trade agreements that make Canada a "virtual" 51st state but actual statehood...very doubtful. National pride will not allow it. Our neighbors up north are good friends but they don't think much of the gang in Washington D.C. I was on a plane once coming back from France. The pilot announced that we were over Canada. A group of Canadian college kids on the flight began to sing their national anthem. I looked out the window and could only see stark wilderness. I thought well, they love it even though it doesn't look like much to me.

Oops, I meant Paul Kennedy's history (as the history of calorie production), not Anthony Kennedy.
