Bonnie over at Ethicurean picked up this correction that the WSJ ran this morning on the money that Wade Dokken has paid Alice Waters to endorse his Ameya Preserve.
I don’t have much more to add to the several items I’ve already written about Alice Waters and the Ameya Preserve. Ameya’s advertising and marketing claims to be green are entirely unsupported. That Alice Waters is drinking Wade Dokken’s koolaid is disappointing, but at this point, not a surprise.
As far as I’m concerned, this definitively answers the is-she-or-isn’t-she an elitist argument — Alice has made it very clear that what she cares about are the wealthy elite who can afford to delude themselves that building large second homes in critical wildlife habitat is “green” if they buy some fake carbon offsets and eat vegetables grown on site.
