Food to Fight Global Warming

With over half of the world population living in cities, we are much further from our food sources than a century ago. For many people, raw food preparation has given way to fast food, frozen food, and packaged food. The environmental result of these actions are contributing to global warming. A low carbon diet is intended to reject the fast food and value eating fresh, local food.
