Eating better

From Jill Richardson at La Vida Locavore:
Call it official: I am officially a David Pimentel fan. Pimentel, a professor at Cornell, has been doing research for years about the link between food production and oil. In a new study, he describes how food production energy needs could be cut in half. And, since about 19% of fossil fuels go to our food (about the same amount used for cars), a 50% savings would be significant!
Here are the press release and links from the publisher of Human Ecology, where the article by Pimentel and student coauthors appeared last year.
