Saturday Green Links – 9/4
Lots of food and bike stuff this week. You can tell what I’m thinking about….
- Math Lessons for Locavores – New York Times. Obviously something grown in a local heated greenhouse is responsible for more emissions than something grown in its natural environment and transported. But greenhouses aren’t really the point of locavorism, are they?
- Great Rides in and Around Boston – Boston Biker. I might actually be up to these longish rides now.
- Canning Tomato Salsa – Sense of Home. We tried canning salsa once and it came out vinegary. But now that my landlady has given us another slew of tomatoes we’ll have to try again.
- Cyclist Says Police Officer Pushed Him – Boston Globe. I hatehatehate Critical Mass. More now as a cyclist than I ever did as a driver.
- Cleaning the Henhouse – New York Times. It’s a really good point—bad conditions for the birds equals more salmonella for us.
Canada Bans BPA. Why Haven’t We? – Grist. Good news!
- Why Home Economics Classes Should Be Mandatory – Change.org. I’m convinced that the reason Jason likes cooking and sewing more than me is because he took a home ec class.
- Is There Animal Fat in Your Plastic Bag? – Plastic-Free Vegetarian. Nuh-unh. Really? Maybe Oliver isn’t trying to commit suicide after all.
That’s all, folks. As usual, if you see anything interesting this week, send it along.
