High Energy Prices → Recession & ↑ Food Prices
High energy costs threaten the global economy & drive up food prices
J. Sachs (economics professor, Columbia University), 08 Jeffrey D. Sachs [Professor of Economics & Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University; Special Adviser to UN Secretary-General on the Millennium Development Goals], “Reinventing Energy,” Project Syndicate, 21 April, 2008, (web, project-syndicate.org, 12/21/09)
“Without plentiful and low-cost energy, every aspect of the global economy is threatened. For example, food prices are increasing alongside soaring oil prices, partly because of increased production costs, but also because farmland in the United States and elsewhere is being converted from food production to bio-fuel production.”

Scotty Phillips, Debate Coach at The Potomac School in McLean, VA, Roy Levkovitz Director of Debate at Woodward Academy in Atlanta, & Bill Batterman, Director of Debate at Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, jointly started a blog on debate earlier this year. While it tends to be geared towards NFL style debating, the strategy, research, & theory articles on the blog will be useful to any debater who wants to improve. Todays article on basic search terms is a prime example.
