American Diet Needs a Break from Meat, Dairy 2.10.2014 Green on
Remember the food pyramid? That was the government's triangle-shaped guidance for dividing up our diet between food groups like grains, meat, dairy and vegetables. Well, the federal government scrapped the pyramid several years back and is now in the midst of revising its latest set of guidelines for the American diet. I'm happy to see that sustainability is, for the first time, part of the conversation for the 2015 Dietary Guidelines but here's the thing: If we're going to have healthy people and a healthy planet, we've got to reduce the amount of meat and dairy we're consuming. Think about this: Even if every industry on the planet except for food production became climate-neutral tomorrow, we'd still blow past global targets for total greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The culprit isn't just the world's growing population, but its growing affinity for the meat-heavy American diet. Meat production is a major source of global greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation, methane released by livestock ...

"We cannot call development sustainable while hunger still robs over 800 million people of the opportunity to lead a decent life," he said in a reference to the latest U.N. report on world hunger, The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2014.

London Phone Booth Converted To Solar-Powered Mobile Charging Station 1.10.2014 Green on
LONDON, Oct 1 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Some of London's famous red telephone boxes are going green, transformed into free, solar-powered mobile chargers to provide a carbon-neutral source of energy in the city. The "solarbox," unveiled on Wednesday, was invented by two graduates from the London School of Economics (LSE) and can be used to charge phones, tablets, cameras and other devices. The first pilot "solarbox" was opened for public use in Tottenham Court Road in London's main central shopping district on Wednesday, equipped with a solar panel which provides a clean, carbon-neutral source of energy. A second solarbox is expected to be opened in January while more will follow. Organizers did not put a number on how many of London's red phone boxes, which are increasingly unused, will be converted into solarboxes. Costs for the green box that can be used free of charge are covered through in-kiosk advertising. The brains behind the solarbox, Kirsty Kenney and Harold Craston, won ...
