The Danish minister for climate and energy on a 13 km cycle through Copenhagen drumming up support for the 2009 Climate Conference in Copenhagen. Wishing our Climate Minister would take such a profile.

a fantastic story in the NYT about new laws in Sweden which list on food labels carbon emissions generated in the production of packaged foods and new dietary recommendations there which account for carbon as well as health "eat carrots not tomatoes" "eat beans or chicken not beef". Amazing. progressive or too prescriptive? Thanks Annuska for the link. And while youre there check out this essay by novelist Johnathan Safran-Foer.

I'd read the article by Jonathan Safran-Foer and thought it was terrific. It was the first I'd heard of him and apparently he's written a couple of books. Novels? And then I saw he's on a panel with our current food hero, Novella Carpentar, in Texas next month. Funny how once you notice someone they start popping up in different places. I love the Barbie foosball too. Way cool.
