When cracking down on food safety in China, authorities came across a most disturbing shipment being smuggled from the Hunan province –  100,000 tons of meat from the 1970s! The meat, including beef, chicken feet and duck necks, was said to be frozen and refrozen over the past 40 years, and unbelievably put back on the market with the intention of selling to consumers. Chinese authorities are investigating 21 gangs potentially involved in the smuggling and sale of the $438 million shipment of disco-era meat.

As they rightly pointed out, many “conventional” desserts are vegan by default—my intention had simply been to point out that cream- and egg-laden desserts are often one of the hardest things for us non-vegans to imagine giving up. But perhaps even more troublesome for many (myself included) is… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Organic Farming Would Be Better In Terms of Climate Change Impact. Right?

I’m probably going to irritate some people with this post.  I apologize in advance because that is not at all my intention.  For those readers that don’t think climate change is a real problem, I respect the fact that there is uncertainty in that science, but if the majority position of climate scientists is true, the stakes in terms of human suffering among the poor are too high not to act.

Comments Off on EcoBoost: Ford’s Near-term Answer to Lowering Emissions Without Forfeiting Performance

Editor’s Note: Corey Weaver is a Ford Technical Expert and EcoBoost’s project leader. One of the great challenges for automakers today is determining which technology or group of technologies will be the most effective in increasing fuel-efficiency and lowering greenhouse emissions – while still meeting the performance, quality and price car-buyers expect. The array of choices available and under development is significant, ranging from turbo charging, direct injection, six speed transmissions, electric power assist steering, weight reductions, electrification, bio fuels and hydrogen fuel cells

The Wave at Stop Climate Chaos Coalition This is a relatively benign stunt by the standards of the Stop Climate Change Coalition, which has stirred up excitement with a nude climate change calander and in the context of Copenhagen, where one group plans to get 10000 people arrested in a climate change protest .

Photo via NY Daily News Some 63% of the world thinks so. A survey by HSBC questioned consumers from countries as disparate as the US, Brazil, Malaysia, Germany, and India about the importance of tackling climate change in relation to other pressing social issues–and the results are fascinating.
