Food & Climate Change

What is simultaneously one of the greatest contributors to
climate change and one of its greatest potential solutions?
Believe it or not, it’s how we farm and eat.

~Why Hunger
Climate Change & the Food System, Introduction

Today on the Slow Food USA blog I watched a short video by WHY Hunger called "The Food and Climate Connection: From Heating The Planet To Healing It." It gives an overview of the global food system's impact on the climate and how a community-based food movement around the world is bringing to life a way of farming and eating that’s better for our bodies and the planet. The video was done in collaboration with Anna Lappe, author of the recently released “Diet for a Hot Planet."

Watch the video, then check out the website for more information and resources. I especially liked the Take Action section. I'm working on a lot of the suggestions, but know I can do more. How about you?
