Let them eat carbon

    Ever tried eating coal? Oxfam's stunt shows how the food we all rely on is at risk in the face of a changing climate. Instead of delivering solutions in Durban to help protect the millions of people on the front lines of the climate crisis, certain countries are standing in the way of progress at the talks.

      But we do eat coal, and oil and gas, in the contribution they make to growing, processing, transporting and cooking food.(I can't remember which environmental writer made this basic point). We cannot get the carbohydrates we need to survive without fossil hydrocarbons or organic carbon whose growing for burning conflicts with growing for eating. That's the problem.
