How to buy organic produce - Organic foods
How to buy organic produce - Organic foods Looking for organic produce, but not sure you've got the real thing? Anna Lappe, organic food expert, tells you the simple ways to tell whether produce is organic or not. First, let's explain what organic produce is: Produce that is grown organically has not been produced with sewage sludge, it hasn't been irradiated, it doesn't include genetically modified foods, or most man-made chemicals. How can you tell whether a piece of produce is organic? If you're in a store that has an organic section, obviously head for it. But if there isn't an organic section, you have to do a little bit of extra work. * The first thing you should do is look for the USDA certified organic label. If they don't have that, look for the PLU number on most fruits and vegetables. You'll find this on a small label that's been stuck to the fruit. * If the PLU number is four digits long, it's not organic. * If it's 5 digits long and begins with the number 9, it is organic. * You can also look at the fruit. Unfortunately, nonorganic fruit tends to be shinier and more perfect looking than organic. Why buy organic produce? It's healthier for your body. It's healthier for the environment, since it doesn't require pesticides. It's healthier for the farm workers who handle the crops. Babies and small children are especially vulnerable to residues of toxic pesticides and other chemicals.

Buildings Are More Responsible For CO2 Emissions Than Cars
While most people think global warming is primarily caused by traffic, the fact is buildings- from skyscrapers to the family home are responsible for more CO2 emissions than automobiles. More than twice as much. Buildings need to power lights, power mechanical systems, even what we call "plug loads" for computers, and other various electronic devices. All of that power is being demanded by a power plant that emits Co2 into the atmosphere. In order to encourage better building design, the Green Building Council now rates construction and land management practices and hands out coveted gold certificates to those buildings that measure up to their global-friendly criteria. One of this year's winners is an automotive assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan. The 6-month old plant also preserves a 75 acre wildlife site across the street, has drought-resistant landscaping to eliminate the need for irrigation, and collects rainwater from its one-point-five million square-foot roof to flush the toilets.

Green a Roof, Cool a City
If there's nowhere else to put it, pile it right on top! That's the philosophy behind urban green roofs, which add much needed green space to otherwise uninviting city landscapes. This video takes us to two of New York's most impressive green roofs to find out how they can help cities cool off and clean up. At state of the art research station on the roof of Silvercup Studios in Queens, we talk to green roof specialist Leslie Hoffman about how a few plants can reduce water pollution, cool an "urban heat island" by 100 degrees, and improve air quality. And at the top of the Solaire in Manhattan, it's easy to feel cool while hanging out in their plush roof garden that adds beauty to functionality. These are some of the first green roofs in New York, and for the future the sky's the limit.

90 countries take part in Earth Hour
Mar 29 - Lights have been turned off at landmarks and homes across the globe to mark Earth Hour 2009 - a global event designed to highlight the threat from climate change. From New York's Times Square to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and London's Houses of Parliament, lights were dimmed as part of a campaign to encourage people to cut energy use and curb greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Organisers said the action showed millions of people wanted governments to work out a strong new U.N. deal to fight global warming. Sonia Legg reports.
