The Omnivore's Dilemma Part 2 (for those of you that couldn't make it last time)

The production of food, a subject few of us think of on a daily basis, seems to be a topic that repeatedly catches my interest. This time, let's get together to discuss Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma." It seems appropriate considering that our last book discussion touched on the idea of biotechnology and genetic engineering as a means to reduce humanity's carbon foot print when it comes to food production. Michael Pollan makes a compelling counter argument against the mono-cultures that such genetic engineering strategies can lead to. His eloquent book is not only a great example of investigative journalism (this centuries "The Jungle") but also an indictment of the "food industrial complex's" role in regards to our nations poor health, increased oil dependence, and contribution to climate change.

Bring your facts, opinions and arguments and join me for a fun discussion night on this interesting topic.
