Michael Pollan discusses food policy on Bill Moyers Journal

Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto is on the Bill Moyers Journal TV show on PBS tonight. He is a great writer and an advocate for local foods. This is an excellent synopsis of his writings about the interconnection between governmental food policy and health, food security, the environment, and energy.
This show will be repeated in the next couple of days on several PBS stations and it is viewable archived on the PBS web site.
I strongly encourage you to watch this. It is well worth your time. He is an engaging speaker and conversationalist with an important message.
Link to the archived episode is below.

Also, Michael Pollan has a nice web site with all his essays (most published in The New York Times Sunday Magazine) and other info and links. Most of the information in his books is found in the essays.
