Tony Weis

Tony Weis is Professor at the Department of Geography at Western University. His research is broadly located in the field of political ecology, with a focus on the power, inequalities, and biophysical instabilities associated with globalized agriculture and food systems, including the explicit and implicit (environmental externalities) subsidies that brace the competitiveness of industrial production. Over the past decade this work has centered most of all on the transformations associated with the industrial grain-oilseed-livestock complex and the soaring scale of animal consumption, and the momentous implications for the environment, food security, and inter-species relations this entails.
