Go Green Get LeanSummer's here, and with it a bounty of fresh food from nearby gardens and farms. It's a delectable time of year in every way.

It's also a good time to understand why the foods choices we make have an enormous effect on the world around us -- an impact that's actually larger than the one we typically create by driving our cars.

Lately, we've been thinking a lot about our diets' carbon footprint and checking out some great new books on the subject.

We thought we'd share their wisdom in this look at a few of our favorites.

I was very sorry to see omitted from this list of favorites Barbara Kingsglover's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle." I also enjoyed Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma." Both are excellent titles for looking at our food industry, the organic industrial farming scheme, local food and biodiversity, and etc. Check them out, please.
