I am very happy that PBS is begginning to adress the issues surrounding our food production and consumption. I see this documentary as an extremey good start to a very serious and complex issue. Until recently I had become quite frustrated with all the bad news on how our food production system adversely affects the environment, as well as our health. There are solutions, however, and I encourage people to be hopeful and innovative, as these problems will not go away on their own....but they will go away if we, as the most powerful source for change, the collective market, demand change through our own behavior.
Please start by visiting www.hometownfarms.com
You will find a very smart and easy solution to all of these problems...it has been an inspiration and a source for focus to do something about putting sustainable, healthy, affordable food on the table for everyone.
Also, the Natural History Museum has had one lecture about the cost of food production, and will be having several lectures in the future about all of these interrelated topics.
