The Societal Ramifications & Consequences of the Making and Taking of Food

This site dedicated to the matters of food above and beyond the mere satiation of flavors on one's palette; but rather the ramifications to society from the consequences of how its' production, distribution, and nutrition affect living systems. How we sow, reap, harvest, legislate and base our economic systems on food is key to how we ultimately treat each other and the Earth.

Republican Party Messenger Affirms Change in Position on Global Warming at Venue with former San Franciscan Mayor Willie Brown for Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson

Frank Luntz, message orignator for the Republican Party announced he was changing his position on global warming today. This was originally released in The Daily Beast in an interview to reporter Michael Smerconish. Mr. Smerconish asked Luntz whether believed in the concept of man-made global warming.

To this, Frank replied, "It doesn't matter whether it exists or not," he
answered, adding, a moment later: "What my position is on that issue and what anyone's position is actually doesn't matter when it comes to legislation. "Hy not? Because "gettiing hung up" on the questions regarding the underlying science, Luntz expounded, wasn't as productive for climate legislation supporters as focusing on "the economic benefits, the health benefits, the national security benefits, in addition to the environmental benefits."

Mr. Luntz actually appeared in Sacramento, CA today at the Crest Theatre to debate the infamous San Franciscan Mayor Willy Brown. Both came to support Mayor Kevin Johnson's Strong Mayor Initiative. Mr. Nelson says he was able to accomplish much of what San Francisco is known for because of such power. The video of the debate should be up on you tube in a few days.
