Great book about the evolution of nitrogen fertilizer. Will it wind up a savior in providing food for the over abundance of our population or will it just forestall the inevitable? With parts of our oceans dying off because of lack of oxygen caused by algae bloom, it may be partly due to nitrogen fertilizers.
