More Food to Think About

Source:The New York Times

I continue to appreciate the New York Times coverage of the American and world food systems and all their environmental implications. While the Gristmill blogged a few weeks back about the human health concerns associated with eating factory-farmed meat, yesterday The Times reported on the massive energy (read petroleum) inputs required by CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feedlot Operations), and the problems of waste produced by these places. The article is called "Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler" and I would recommend it if you've not already picked up Michael Pollen's The Omnivore's Dilemma (what are you still waiting for?).
