Food for 9 Billion: Eating with climate change in mind

In the December holiday hubbub, I missed 2012’s final installment in the great yearlong public media project, Food for 9 Billion. It’s a deceptively simple piece that manages to encapsulate many of the complexities in being a conscientious eater in the modern world. Jon Miller, executive director of Homeland Productions, goes shopping with (the awesomely named) chef Spike Gjerde and Roni Neff, an expert on the connections between climate change and our food systems.

Find the Marketplace audio story here (or transcript here), and then check out Neff’s four steps toward a climate-friendly diet.
