Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The climate change era is already upon us
The Daily Climate - 10/28/2013.
By Jane Lubchenco and Thomas E. Lovejoy - A sophisticated analysis, published in the premier scientific journal Nature by a team of young scientists at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, shows that impacts of climate change are already dramatic, with much more to come. While policymakers posture, dither and deny, the unraveling has already begun.
GM Crops Causing a Stir in Washington State, Mexico, and Hawaii
Worldwatch Institute - 10/28/2013.
By Sophie Wenzlau - In Washington state, voters are beginning to cast ballots in favor of or opposing Initiative 522, which would mandate that all GM food products, seeds, and seed stocks carry labels in the state. According to the initiative, polls consistently show that the vast majority of the public, typically more than 90 percent, would like to know whether or not the food they buy has been produced using genetic modification.

San Francisco Chronicle - 10/28/2013.
By Stephanie M. Lee - As consumers nationwide have become more aware of the toxic chemicals in their over-the-counter products, they have pushed manufacturers and retailers to make changes.

Huffington Post - 10/28/2013.
By Lynne Peeples - Bisphenol A has gotten a much higher profile in recent years, as the "BPA-free" label adorns an increasing number of water bottles and baby products. News headlines regularly hint at possible connections between BPA and a lengthening list of health problems. But the ingredient is still common in plastics, food can liners – and in our bodies. The chemical can be found in 93 percent of Americans, according to a guide released Monday by the nonprofit Environmental Working Group and the Keep-A-Breast Foundation.
