live from the GreenThumb NYC Conference

Scott Stringer is speaking at the moment.  LOUDLY!!  

Anna Lappe just finished.  She was terrific, focusing on the relationship between Industry and Climate change.  Some highlights:

* Industrial food is responsible for 1/3rd of greenhouse gas emissions. 
* Livestock = 18% of those emissions.
* More people in America are in prison then are farming.
* Today there are 4000+ farmer’s markets in the country.  30 years ago there were less then 700.

the mad hot ballroom kids are coming on...

Be Well.
