96 food production plants destroyed in the last 18 months
Think Americana has a list of 96 food production plants destroyed in the last 18 months, not counting the fire in the pizza production plant this week. Fortunately the American food production industry is quite decentralized with some 30,000 plants scattered all over the country.
Of particular interest is #96, seems to confirm that this winter’s snow melt from the Sierras was dumped into the sea.
