Given my recent posts on the amount of time people spend eating and Ghent's "Meatless Thursdays," I thought it worthwhile to point out the Michael Pollan was on Democracy Now this morning. My Pollan is the author of, among other books, The Omnivore's Dilemma.
In addition to discussing his book and industrial food production (i.e., industrial pork production and wine flu, pointing out that eating pork is not how the disease is transmitted), he also has some interesting views on the relationships between of free-trade, the environment, and the development of industrial agriculture.
