|“In the early days of the sugar plantations, lunch was a simple affair. Plantation workers gathered in the fields for their mid-day meal. The Japanese laborers would bring teriyaki beef with rice and pickled vegetables. Seated next to them might be their Filipino neighbors with the traditional dish adobo or perhaps a pork or chicken stew. The Koreans had their kalbi or marinated ribs and the Chinese a rice noodle and vegetable dish called chow fun. Hawaiians were known for their kalua pig, roasted in an underground oven called an imu. It wasn’t long before they began to share their foods with one another and the “mixed plate” was born.

MIND NUMBING NUMBERS
by Jeff Stark
Getting a handle on environmental issues requires having some access to and familiarity with numbers. In order to deal with global warming we need to know how many units - tons, or pounds or some other generally accepted means of measuring - are produced every day, every year, every decade. Without knowing the numbers, the relevant facts, it is hard to convince people of the need for action. Numbers are also universal. A gallon of gasoline, or better yet, biodiesel, in Portland, Oregon is exactly the same as in the Isle of Portland in England. Because of this we can communicate globally and share our information, opinions and ideas with our fellow global citizens.
r> For those of us who are interested in and involved in environmentalism the numbers that are most important are those that are derived from science. Climate science is a well established discipline. It features scientific data generated by a combination of relatively low-tech data gathering such as daily reading and reporting of temperatures. In some cases the scientific data record goes back to 1850. In other cases, such as satellite imaging of global weather patterns, the methods are much more complex and expensive. Either way the key is following the scientific method and producing and sharing valid data. By and large we trust science and accept the data as presented. CLICK HERE FOR MORE
