Peak Phosphorus May Follow Peak Oil | Smart Journalism. Real Solutions. | Miller-McCune Online Magazine.

Recently Mark Edwards and I were interviewed about the peak phosphorus issue by this interesting magazine.  The piece is now out and brings together several perspectives on the emerging P sustainability issue that we have started to pursue with our “Sustainable P Initiative” and the 2011 SOLS Frontiers in Life Sciences (FILS) conference (“Sustainable Phosphorus Summit”) that Jess Corman is leading.

As Douglas Adams wrote (in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe I think):
