An excellent little video on transitioning from Globalization to Eco-Localism. Lots of food for thought.

I doubt the narrator of this video would recognize roboticists as allies, and also expect that many roboticists won’t immediately see a connection. That connection is encapsulated in the word "attention".  In a world in which farmers are hard-pressed to find enough help at a wage they can afford, there isn’t enough attention to go around, With the result that crops not requiring so much attention are substituted for those requiring more, and, where no subsidies exist, concern for environmental issues go wanting. Robotics can supply the needed attention, in the most basic sense for now, but eventually in all senses of the word.
