Earth's Bounty: Is Eating Locally the Best Way to Reduce Greenhouse Gases?

We hear from two experts on the environmental impacts of food purchases, and why the movement to buy local might not be taking into account transportation and other factors. The Allegheny Front's Jennifer Szweda Jordan interviews Brian Snyder, Executive Director of PA Association for Sustainable Agriculture, and Rich Pirog, with the Iowa State University Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture. This extended version of the interview, only available online, features our speakers discussing why low-income people may find sustainable foods affordable, and the challenges in calculating the carbon impact of food.
