Document Summary

The localism/seasonalism mindset began by a group of writers one named alyssa. Wrote a book called the hundred mile dive. What the book argues is that it is more virtuous to eat locally. Economic advantages for the producers: more expensive. If its picked/farmed locally, transportation costs are saved: pierre de rocher wrote an article called the local wars dilemma, debunks the argument of locally produced foods. He uses the carbon fallacy and talks about a study that was done in the uk about lamb from the uk and other places. What he points out is that if you buy nz lamb, that lamb has to be sent about 11k miles from nz to uk. If you ship lamb over 11k miles, environmental costs in terms of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere about 1500 pounds of c02 is created per each tonne of lamb.
