I'm ok with crapping on oil, the 1%, and overweight North Americans but lay off Coffee.

Its been a while but I have a vague recollection that food wastage in the developing world (including Russia in this) due to inadequate storage facilities and pests like rats led to far more spoilage (of the raw product) of food than the developed world. That North Americans waste far more finished or table ready food - I have no doubt.
