and if you teach a bunch of Journalism students about depleted stocks of food fish and the dangers of badly farmed fish, maybe they will think more about their food.
Last night I was invited by Andrew Galarneau of The Buffalo News and One Big Kitchen to speak to his class. The idea was to challenge the class with a thesis, defend it and answer questions. The class will then write an article based on the presentation. My actual thesis was that higher food prices might be a good thing. for our personal health and the health and environment of our Country. Yep - Michael Pollan, Eric Schlosser, Morgan Spurlock and the like.
It was a hoot!
