Controversy rages over the extent of these changes and the causes. But, whether the changes are alarmist large or simply modest shifts, we can all do things that ease the strain on our environment and on the planet. And, for sure, we see substantial population gains that stress our planet, beginning with the need to supply more and more food. What can we do, as individuals, to help our planet, our environment and our society? We find thirty answers in 30 Ways to Join the Food Revolution." —COOKING BY THE BOOK
