This link was sent to me by a friend. It's interesting - the Fifers have discovered many of the same things we did. Their perspective is that a local diet is preparation for the future, this is interesting as it suggests people are wanting to prepare for times ahead in which food supplies are cut off and international trade is reduced. Is this a possibility? I think so.

Hey the River Cottage folk liked my amethyst deceivers,
check it out (scroll down a bit, my pics are near the bottom of the page).
If they are super nice to me I might let them have my squirrel stew recipe. Or maybe they can just read it on the page below...
This article is really good, it busts a few myths about how to save the world.
the thing is, everyone likes recycling because it doesnt mean much change. The article points out that it would be better to stay in UK for your holiday and do no recycling at all, than to recycle carefully but still have nice two weeks in the sun. the list goes on, and people stay dumb.
Of course it also means local meat is much more carbon heavy than air-freight veg
The simple list of what to do is:
1. Go vegan
2. Don't buy anything. But especially not big TVs and gagdets and computer games etc
3. Eat up your food and dont chuck it out/
4. Insulate your house.
If you did that it would far outweigh a few plastic pots being recycled.
But its sexier to instal solar and drive a hybrid and think that that is enough/
This is an emergency people!
