The Environment Agency (UK) has published its Top 100 eco-heroes as voted by their peers ("peers" is code for "the staff of The Environment Agency"). Many of the obvious trailblazers have made the cut. Not surprisingly, Rachel Carson takes first place for bringing awareness to the effects of indiscriminate use of pesticides. Less predictable is the number seven slot awarded Prince Charles for his Duchy of Cornwall line of Products which has helped to shape the consumer's desire for locally produced, high quality, organic foods. Sorry Al Gore (#9), you just haven't done enough for our stomachs.
