CO 2 Emission Labeling on Food

I just read a very interesting article in the New York times about Sweden adding CO 2 emissions to food labels even in fast food places see above the burger is higher than the chicken sandwich. I think this is a cool idea, but folks will still buy the burger also if you live in a colder country tomatoes are high as they are grown in greenhouses but again who wants to give up tomatoes in cooking.

I think its just another factor to consider when making a food purchase, along with sodium content and fat etc if you can choose a food that is better for the environment its wonderful.

Its neat to know this though, what do you think of the scheme?
