Chances are, your garden will re-engage you with your neighbors, for you will have reduced the power of the cheap-energy mind by personally overcoming its most debilitating weakness: its helplessness and the fact that it can’t do much of anything that doesn’t involve division of subtraction.” (Pollen 20) “An additional 13.1 percent of the emissions that contribute to the global warming effect come from transportation, toting everything from people to pork chops.” (Lappe 32) How is climate change affecting natural disasters?
