Food Miles - A Primer

The BBC, in their estimable food section, have produced what might be characterised as a primer on food miles, or, more broadly, the environmental impact of what we eat - especially where it is grown and how it comes to us. It is a helpful and balanced presentation of the facts, including the importance of taking our carbon footprint into account as well as a sober look at all the sources of emissions related to our food (not just air miles). Check it out!
