I am getting conflicting data about GHG effecting global warming. Accoring to Pete Jonjer, temperature on earth rise before CO2 levels. The average period bettween the two effects is 800 - 1300 yrs. Gore confused cause and effect by shrinking hisgraphs timeline (X-axis). If CO2 levels drive temperatures why is it we were experiencing reduced tempertures globally in the 60s and 70s.And in th e30s the temperatures around the globe were higher than last few decades.

Thanks for the great perspective about the farmer's market vs. food store travel; I have been in a similar predicament. I travel almost solely by bicycle, but my farmer's market is 25 miles away (50 mile round-trip) - somewhat do-able in April and October, but pretty taxing now when temps are in the mid-90's. I'm no Lance Armstrong!

Most times I have made the trip I have either borrowed a car, or ridden with a friend, but still didn't feel great about driving. I only hoped that since the market is the enterprise of an Amish community - entirely horse-driven machinery in combination with human power - this may have provided a slight offset to my car riding.

In thinking over the logic in this article, I am resigned to toughing-up and making less frequent trips by bicycle, and hauling back bigger quantities for freezing and preserving. It's hard to forego having all fresh, but I think this will provide the best balance.

Thanks for the perspective - love the podcast!
