Mayor Sam Adams and Portland's new Climate Action Plan

Locus Focus

Tue, 06/09/2009

While Portland may be ahead of the curve in taking on the challenge of climate change, there's still a lot of work to be done.

Portland was one of the first American cities to take climate change seriously. In 2007, Portland was the only large metro area in the U.S. that actually reduced its carbon emissions below 1990 levels. But that doesn't mean we can just rest on our laurels. If this region is to succeed in radically reducing our carbon footprint, there’s a lot more work to be done. This morning Portland Mayor  Sam Adams joins Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein to unveil Portland's new Climate Action Plan.

Paul Roberts - Food System in Danger (lecture)
Paul Roberts is a journalist and author. His articles appear in major newspapers and magazines. He's the author of The End of Oil. His latest book is The End of Food.

Parts of our food chain are toxic and dangerous. With increasing frequency in recent years outbreaks of food-borne bacteria have resulted in deaths and the sickening of many thousands. Pathogens appear in our beef, chicken, lettuce, peppers, spinach, tomatoes, pistachios and peanuts. What's next? The industrialized agribusiness model is fraying and is posing more and more health threats to the general population. Consumer confidence in the safety of our food
supply is waning. In addition to hygienic issues, food corporations make wild unsubstantiated claims about their products. For example, General Mills, the maker of Cheerios says the cereal is "clinically proven to help lower cholesterol." In response to the worsening situation, many citizens are turning to locally-based organic farmers
to provide them with nutritious food without pesticides and additives. Farmers markets are springing up everywhere.
