Listening to Nature’s Operating Instructions: Chef Dan Barber


For TED Talk Tuesday on 350orbust, Chef Dan Barber tells an eloquent and surprising parable of foie gras.

“The most ecological choice for food is also the most ethical choice for food whether we’re talking about brussel sprouts or foie gras. And it’s almost always – I haven’t found evidence of this being otherwise – the most delicious choice.”

    ‘Natural World: A Farm for the Future’ is a documentary which describes a low energy based agricultural system which focuses on woodlands, beneficial insects and wildlife in a healthy ecosystem. I consider it a ‘must see’ for anyone concerned with:
    beneficial insects, biodiversity, climate change, conservation, ecosystems, energy, environment, farming, food, forests, fossil fuels, gardening, green living, livestock, nature, organics, permaculture, soil, sustainability and wildlife.

    It is available online at Top Documentary Films:

        Okay I just checked it out. And I’ve seen it – I wonder if you left this link on 350or bust before? It is a good movie – I just wish the resolution was better on a larger screen!
