A Sensible Food Policy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Matthew Schmitz @ 1:21 am

Rod Dreher has an interesting interview with James McWilliams about what food choices promote both high yields and a high level of sustainability:

The only way I see this happening is if we stop polarizing our discussions of food into big industrial and small organic, and start seeking common ground over compromises that split differences. We’ll have to eat much less meat, many more whole grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes; tolerate the judicious use of chemicals in the production of our food; keep an open mind to the potential benefits of biotechnology; and worry less about the distance our food traveled than the overall energy it took to produce it.
