Climate, Food and a Side of Hope

We’ve adopted the Climate Action Plan to reduce our city-wide carbon foot print 80 percent by 2050. We know that food system reform plays a key role in mitigating the climate crisis. We’ve said this before, and no doubt we’ll talk about it again, but for now, images speak louder than words.

Invest nine minutes and fifty-two seconds to watch this beautifully composed short film by WhyHunger below. It presents a global overview of climate change’s connection with agriculture and the industrial food system, while bringing hope in the shape of a united climate justice and food movement. In this case, a picture’s worth a thousand tons of greenhouse gas.
