Tonight on SCN

I just got word of these programs which will be on SCN tonight.  In particular the first one should be interesting as it takes on the idea of local food systems.

Food Miles

Air Date: March 8, 2010 8:00pm

Details: In the 21st century global food economy, by the time it’s been grown, processed, and distributed, most foods have traveled an average of 1,500 miles before reaching the plate. As renowned author Michael Pollan elaborates, the impacts of this fossil fuel-driven system are detrimental to the environment, but also to our health and social well-being. Writer Michael Shuman argues that investing in local food systems lessens the geographic and psychological distance between who we are and what we eat.

Revolution Green

Air Date: March 8, 2010 9:00pm

Details: Revolution Green is as much about the choices we face in the world today as it is about the future of one man’s idea, or one truckers dream to find his favorite fuel. In the end, history will remember the crossroads we find ourselves at as America stands on the brink of a new industrial revolution.
