Are we moving in the right direction with our energy planning?

Food Inc posterLast Friday, I went to see Greenrock's first screening of Food, Inc. at BUEI. It's a movie that "lifts the veil" on the American food industry and a must see for anyone that aspires to be an intelligent and ethical consumer. The film makes the point that the way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years, than in the last 10,000 – and that although food has never been so cheap (an arguable benefit), it has also never been so nutrient poor and calorie-rich.
