Shipping Container + LED Light = Agricultural Revolution

This train is pulling hundreds of shipping containers in a "double stack" configuration. Hold that thought.

Throughout my life, I have been amazed by all of the progress in agriculture. Part of it due to global warming (longer growing seasons) and part of it due to the green revolution. Now, another revolution may be upon us. Farming in Shipping Containers! The Wall Street Journal has a fascinating article on the subject. 

While the shipping container produce is more expensive than produce grown conventionally, the cost will likely go down. Plus, fresh produce -- grown anywhere, anytime -- may be worth the price in parts of the world off major shipping lanes.

Of course, the global warming clique will be upset because this makes their (overly) gloom and doom contentions much less gloomy.
