love both these videos from Ted X - about the healthiest agriculture systems parallel natural ecosystems.
I like the way he speaks and his found farm is a definite improvement but come-on:
"no force-feeding, no cruelty". Really? The livers magically pop out? No harm done to the geese? The geese ends up dead, killed. Call me funny but I think killed falls under cruelty.
Yeah I know what you mean. But I didn't relate the goose's normal tendency to fatten up in the fall to the idea of a fatty liver. If the industry continues to demand foie gras, I'd like to think that we could meet that demand in a much more humane way. Living cage-free in a setting where they feel safe, eat what they want and do not get force fed is at least a step forward until the whole world goes vegan!
I think he is more into sustainable 'for him' then sustainable for everyone on the planet. At least in the presentation he admitted to be ego-centric.
I don't think the whole world will/needs to go vegan. At least he should realize/admit that killing animals is cruel.
It was an interesting talk. I love TED. Thanks for posting.
oh cool - I see what you mean! yeah - esp. as a chef and thinking of food as a delicacy (a product) rather than seeing it from a ecological and biocentric point of view!
