Humankind: The Diet-Climate Connection, Episode 2

This program examines the connection between our diet and our climate. A public health expert explains the global warming impact of our personal food choices, and we go grocery-shopping with a prominent physician who highlights healthy foods that are also climate-friendly. Plus, a visit to the White House vegetable garden and to community gardens in Nevada and California, where citizens come together to cultivate both healthy food and a more cohesive local community.

The Diet-Climate Connection project is funded by the Henry P. Kendall Foundation, the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment, the Lintilhac Foundation and a special grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. It is presented by Humankind public radio in partnership with Connie Goldman Productions.
