BTL's Dose of No-Nonsense: Serving #5

A Dose of No-Nonsense is a regular sampling from the No-Nonsense Guides published by Between The Lines. Courtesy of Paula Brill from BTL.

Few people learn that food production is one of the world’s dirtiest industries, doing more damage to more territory than logging, mining or heavy industry. Likewise, the relationship between food and global warming – from farm fertilizer to post-dinner fart, as City University of London's Tim Lang sometimes puts it, today's gassy foods are responsible for over a third of global warming emissions – has been kept from public view and off the activist agenda until recently.
