#poptech Eating to reduce your carbon footprint

In a great presentation Michael Pollan ( gave some great tips to help reduce the carbon footprint:

- Eat locally grown produce, organic produce shipped across the country has a larger carbon footprint
- Grow vegetables at home
- Cook at home and eat less outside
- Have family meal times and eat at the table together with the family.
- A vegan in a Hummer has a lighter carbon footprint than a meat eater in a Prius
- A burger takes 26 oz of oil and 13 lbs of fuel to make
- change the food bills in the US legislature not to focus so much on corn
