October 16 was World Food Day.
It was also a day when millions of people are cleaning up after yet another weather-related disaster, this time in Florida. And millions more around the globe are experiencing devastating droughts and crippling storms that are leaving them unable to grow food and feed their families.
We often think that we, as individuals, have little or no power to solve problems as complex and overwhelming as global warming and world hunger.
And yet, we do. The personal choices we make when it comes to our food, and the demands we make of our local, state and federal politicians to adopt climate change-reversing food, farming and land-use policies give us the power to do something, everyday, to reverse our dangerous course.
