In serious news: Land grabbing has more of an impact on the world's poor than climate change. "Wherever I went, people were being moved off with little or no regard for their historic or cultural rights. The grabbers want big spaces – 50,000 hectares – and you can only get that if you take commonly owned ancestral lands."
- An OpEd in the New York Times this week took on how sustainability in seafood is messaged to the public. "We should recognize that seafood-labeling systems hold seafood to much higher standards than other forms of agriculture. The same stores that won’t sell an overfished species are selling other foods whose production affects the environment far more."

- A quixotic sweet that endeavors to out-green the competition, the first of a new line of "carbon-neutral" chocolate arrives in Britain by sailing ship from Granada. (It's all so romantic looking that we'll be good sports and not get into the question of how carbon neural anything produced in the modern world is.)
