Friday Green Links – 5/21
Lots about organic food this week. The farmer’s markets around here restarted this week, and I think everyone has produce on the brain.
- Where Should Your Organic Dollars Go? – Smart Family Tips. The Environmental Working Group updates its Dirty Dozen list of fruits and veggies that retain the most pesticides.
- President’s Cancer Panel Report Links Chemicals & Non-Organic Food To Cancer – The Good Human. Speaking of buying organic food….
- What Are the Arguments Against Genetically Modified Crops? – Slate. This pretty much exactly reflects my opinions on the subject.
- Chill Wind – Boston Globe. I think I want to read this guy’s book: Losing Our Cool: Uncomfortable Truths About Our Air-Conditioned World (and Finding New Ways to Get Through the Summer).
- How Green Are the Childless by Choice? – Grist. I really like this series in Grist; it’s nice to be reminded that I’m not the only person in the world who doesn’t want kids.
- New Report Shows Forest Cover Declining in New England – The Green Blog. Big surprise, huh?
- How I Learned to Love My Electric Bicycle – Slate. Too expensive for me, but it seems like a good idea to get more people on bikes.
- Renovation Turns Old House into Green Healthy House with Near Zero Heating Bills – Treehugger. A really in-depth look into the sort of thing that the Cambridge Home Energy Efficiency Team does.
That’s all for now. As always, if you find something interesting, send it my way.
