Resolution No. 2049

We've been inundated recently with news about the green movement. Nadia Johnson of Just Food, a NYC based non-profit organization that works to develop a just and sustainable food system in the New York City region, wrote in a recent newsletter:

"Resolution 2049 is the first ever to address climate change exclusively through our food system and proposes "FoodprintNYC," a citywide initiative designed to lessen the impact the City's food choices and production systems have on climate change through the launch of a public awareness campaign, greater access to local, fresh, healthy food, and the mobilization of the financial and technical support needed to sustain these efforts, especially in low-income communities as well as city-run institutions."

This initiative is important because it's easy to take our current, unstable food system for granted when it's actually on a path to self-destruction. What are your takes on this issue?
