#1 Environmental Issue This Earth Day — Can You Guess It?

#1 Environmental Issue This Earth Day — Can You Guess It?

Today, the #1 cause of numerous environmental problems, including our #1 problem of global warming (perhaps the biggest threat humanity has ever faced), is related to our food choices. I could probably write a book on it, but a great post someone shared with me yesterday and a great video someone else shared with me yesterday tackle this issue very well, so I think that for now I’ll just leave you with those. First is the video, a TEDxTC video of Jonathan Foley talking about “the largest driver of climate change , biodiversity loss and environmental destruction” and solutions to our dilemma (this is a very eye-opening video). Following that is a full repost from Robert Goodland via Chopping Climate Change!
