The High Cost of Convenience

Plastic pollution is an environmental catastrophe that we can all take responsibility for creating. The choices we make as consumers are literally choking the life out of our global ecosystem. A new documentary, Inside the Garbage of the World, says its so bad, we may not be able to recover. The images are disturbing. But perhaps we need to see exactly what we are causing by accepting yet another plastic bag for our groceries, or purchasing another plastic bottle full of water or buying another throw away plastic toy made from questionable materials.

New Pesticide Rules for California Strawberries

California is the leading producer of strawberries in the U.S. In 2013, more than 2.3 billion pounds of strawberries were harvested annually. Of the 16.3 percent exported, Canada imports the majority of California’s fresh and frozen strawberry produce. So do California's new pesticide rulings make these treasured sweet berries safe to eat? Unfortunately not.

The Black Swan

"I am compelled to fear that science will be used to promote the power of dominant groups rather than to make men happy."
Bertrand Russell, Icarus, the Future of Science, 1925

The term black swan originated from an old belief that all swans were white. In that context, a black swan became a metaphor for something that could not exist. But when black swans were discovered in Australia in the 17th century, the saying took on a new meaning. In the case of genetically engineered industrial agriculture, the black swan became a perceived impossibility that actually has come to pass bringing with it a large impact.
