Foreign Policy Magazine
Anna responds to Robert Paarlberg’s defense of industrial agriculture as the best way to feed the world and his criticism that organic agriculture is an “elite preoccupation.” In her rebuttal piece, Anna explains the very research findings that prove organic farming is a sustainable way to feed the world, and dismantles Paarlberg’s fear tactics aimed at scaring readers – and eaters – into believing that industrial ag is the only way.
Anna joined Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and NYU Professor Marion Nestle to talk about the Food and Climate Summit, which was held at NYU in December in partnership with Just Food.
Anna donned jeans and cowboy boots and trekked out to Central Park for a Glamour photo shoot of eco-women. She stood alongside superstars like Christie Brinkley and Alicia Silverstone as well as eco-heroines like Alice Waters and Jane Houlihan, from Environmental Working Group.
