fighting climate change through food

In link on October 24, 2009 at 3:35 pm

in the not-too-distant future, americans may have to get used to seeing calorie counts and nutritional information on menus at fast food chains. but are they ready to learn about the environmental impact of their food, too?

according to this article, a pilot project in sweden is adding labels to food that list “the carbon dioxide emissions associated with the production of foods, from whole wheat pasta to fast food burgers.”

what do you think? would having this information change your eating habits?
