    So great! This guy is awesome. It was beyond time that this stuff got mainstream attention! I always wondered why people rarely talk about the insanity that is food wasted in America.

    I think this is one of the biggest problems of our era. Foot production and allocation is a major challenge, but there are some serious issues with the current way of doing things, chief among them are environmental concerns and hunger.

    As always a top notch episode. This guy needs his own cable network.

      He does indeed. I'd enjoy him as president as well. Wouldn't that be a hoot!

    Thanks for the You Tube link. Vids are always very laggy here for me and I have to wait for them to start to punch the YT button.

    We throw away food, there are more than five times as many vacant homes in the U.S. as there are homeless people and we spend $400 billion on a fleet of fighter jets.

    Am I the only one who finds this embarrassing?

      You're not the only one, and it is thoroughly embarrassing. It's fucking unreal the disconnect in sensibilities we're forced to play along with. Calling it heartbreaking is an understatement. I would be in a constant meltdown if I hadn't adopted a sort of nihilistic attitude towards life in general. Still optimistic somehow though...
