I’m probably one of, I don’t know, 16 million people linking to this article by Michael Pollan in the NY Times Magazine. In it, he covers why we should bother trying to do things to improve the earth. And the majority of his point is spent covering why it should be more than switching our evil, energy consuming lightbulbs into less evil, less energy consuming lightbulbs. Plant a garden says Mr. Pollan.
The general scientific consenus is that the climate is changing and that man has had an impact. For many, this still feels unsettled, but… it’s settled.
Pollan’s comments on growing gardens (with a lot of history included) is fun to read as is always the case with him. Check it out. Feel good about your gardens.
In fact, feel smug.
