One of my beefs with Consumer Reports has always been its refusal to present sustainability as a standard measure of quality. They did launch Greener Choices, but so far that’s been pretty underwhelming, and anyway, it will never reach as large an audience as the mothership.

So imagine my delight when reading this week’s CR, which has a short piece about the impact of global warming on insurance premiums (not online), and then later on a long, detailed, and fair look at when it is and isn’t worthwhile to buy organic. Worth a read. I hope it’s a sign of things to come.
