Which produces less carbon, an apple from NZ or NY?

A Reporter at Large: Big Foot: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker

This is a great article on the global climate crisis.  It talks about “food miles”and how poor of a indicator it really is when trying to discern carbon impact.  It’s a bit long, but stick with it; the article is definitely worth the read.
