U-Minn dean: Troubled Waters 'vilifies agriculture'

MPR’s Stephanie Hemphill has an update on the University of Minnesota’s yanking of the “Troubled Waters” environmental documentary:

The Dean of the University of Minnesota School of Agriculture says the premiere of a film about pollution in the Mississippi River was postponed because it “vilifies agriculture.” …

Dean Al Levine said the film opens with a lot of drama, and spends too much time discussing agricultural pollution before considering any other sources of water pollution. …

Levine says the film isn’t inaccurate, but it’s unbalanced. He said it should have included scientists who are trying to figure out how to feed 9 billion people by 2050.
