Episode Summary

EDIT
Is Asia Ready for Organic Food?
AIRED:
Organic foods currently make up less than one percent of the food consumed in China. Meanwhile, China's environmental challenges are growing -- as carbon levels in the atmosphere increase, droughts threaten, food prices rise and international pressure to find an answer to global climate change grows. But organic agriculture offers a solution, a way to conserve water and capture carbon from the atmosphere, while increasing yields and lowering prices.Gary Hirshberg (CEO, Stonyfield Farm), Beth Keck (Sr. Director, International Sustainability, Wal-Mart) and Orville Schell (Director, Asia Society Center on U.S.-China Relations) discuss if China is ready for a change in the way it produces its food.What effect would an organic China have on world markets and the world's climate?http://www.flickr.com/photos/markybon/ / CC BY-NC-SA 2.0moreless
