A Map Of Where Your Food Originated May Surprise You
National Public Radio - 6/13/2016.
By Jeremy Cherfas - Some people may be dimly aware that Thailand's chilies and Italy's tomatoes – despite being central to their respective local cuisines – originated in South America. Now, for the first time, a new study reveals the full extent of globalization in our food supply. More than two-thirds of the crops that underpin national diets originally came from somewhere else – often far away. And that trend has accelerated over the past 50 years.
The Infuriating Reason Why Toxic Chemicals Lurk in Household Products
Mother Jones - 6/13/2016.
By Erica Langston - If a divided Congress uniting behind progressive public health legislation sounds too good to be true, that's because it likely is. Last Tuesday, the Senate approved a bill that amends the Toxic Substances Control Act, a decades-old law intended to keep dangerous chemicals out of household and industrial products. The amendment is the first substantial update to chemical oversight since the TSCA was passed 40 years ago, and President Barack Obama is expected to sign it as early as this week. The much-needed update will tighten federal testing and rope in tens of thousands of industrial compounds that were previously unregulated.
The atmosphere has hit a grim milestone – and scientists say we’ll never go back ‘within our lifetimes’
The Washington Post - 6/13/2016.
By Chris Mooney - Scientists who measure and forecast the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere said Monday that we may have passed a key turning point. Humans walking the Earth today will probably never live to see carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere once again fall below a level of 400 parts per million (ppm), at least when measured at the iconic Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, where the longest global record of Co2 has been compiled.
Dresden's Fluid Farms Wins $50,000 Prize
The Lincoln County News - 6/10/2016.
By J.W. Oliver - The company behind a first-in-Maine aquaponics startup in Dresden received the $50,000 grand prize in a live business-pitch competition in Portland on Tuesday, June 7. Fluid Farms LLC received the prize in Gorham Savings Bank's fourth annual LaunchPad competition, according to the Portland Press Herald. The 4-year-old company was one of 179 applicants and five finalists in the competition.
