Former U.S. President Obama Speaks At Global Food Conference In Milan

New York Times: Obama Speaks in Milan, With Food as Text and Politics as Subtext
“Barack Obama took his first step back onto the world stage on Tuesday, shedding his tie to give wide-ranging, if studiously nonpartisan, remarks during a food and technology conference in Milan. First in a keynote address, during which he often consulted his notes, and then in a policy-heavy conversation with his former chef, Sam Kass, Mr. Obama spoke about how climate change was imperiling food production around the world and threatening to aggravate the ‘migration that has put such a burden on Europe’…” (Horowitz/Strom, 5/9).
