Saving The World Is Hard – Don’t Waste Food

According to a recent New York Times piece about one-third of all food produced and packaged for human consumption is wasted. That amounts to 1.3 billion tons per year or $680 billion. With about 10% of the world’s population chronically undernourished, that is shameful. Another way of looking at it is that the wasted food accounts for about 10% of green house gases.

I Gotta Learn How To Be A Duck

Going forward, that’s how I am determined to stay up with this important political season. Just let the political ugliness run off my back and not even notice it.
