Here's What Daily Sprawl is reading these days...
The Omnivore's Dilemma.
While the title may not sound sprawl-related, it actually ties into the issues of food production and how fossil fuels have changed the way we eat.
In doing so, it asks several interesting questions. For instance, is "organic" really a sustainable option if those organic bananas arrived at your grocer via plane from Chile?
Very thought-provoking. So much so that, after finding the book at a clearance sale at this wonderful little bookstore/coffee shop, Daily Sprawl has been fascinated by The Omnivore's Dilemma.
