The Wine World's New Wave of Organic

Empowering the Consumer to Make Wine Choices Vital for both Palate and Planet

About ConsciousWine

Have you noticed that an organic carrot almost always tastes better than a regular carrot?? So how can organically grown grapes be a bad thing?? Something went cuckoo when it comes to organic in the fine wine world, and ConsciousWine is here to set the record straight! To redefine what organic means in the fine wine world and to let you know whose doing 'dynamically organic' things out there in the vineyards... and following it up by making wine that rocks! One more thing... The idea for ConsciousWine was started after a wine-tasting with wines from all over the world that were tasting way too similiar to each other. PS: ADVERTISING dollars have no impact when it comes to who is supported by ConsciousWine and who is not. Head to MUSINGS for ConsciousWine's Blog...

We Have Five Years To Save Ourselves From Climate Change, Harvard Scientist Says | Forbes

The level of carbon now in the atmosphere hasn't been seen in 12 million years, a Harvard scientist said in Chicago Thursday, and this pollution is rapidly pushing the climate back to its state in the Eocene Epoch, more than 33 million years ago, when there was no ice on either pole. "We have exquisite information about what that state is, because we have a paleo record going back millions of years, when the earth had no ice at either pole. There was almost no temperature difference between the equator and the pole," said James Anderson, a Harvard University professor of atmospheric chemistry best known for establishing that chlorofluorocarbons were damaging the Ozone Layer.
