In return for the money, the deal will essentially “ransom the museum from city ownership,” as the New York Times puts it, placing it in control of an independent charitable trust.

Responses indicated that keeping the diary both stopped them from overspending the week of and in weeks post—diarists were more conscious of where their money was going and knowing the record would be public made them feel accountable for their spending. In addition, not only did recorders spend less while keeping a diary, but it helped them “diagnose” some of their spending issues. A food diary helps identify how our emotions, dining companions, perceptions versus reality, and speed of eating affect how, what, and when we eat. The reflections from the money diarists paralleled these insights—diarists indicated being surprised by how much they actually spent versus how much they thought they did, how much they spent in response to positive emotions, how fast little things added up, and how much money was spent on social activities.

The last decade or so has brought ample evidence that Americans are gradually changing their diets, driven by health concerns and other factors. The environmental group found that consumption of chicken and pork fell as well, though less drastically, as Americans ate more cheese, butter and leafy greens. The council is hailing the plummeting popularity of beef as a victory in the fight against climate change, because greenhouse gases are produced when cattle are raised.

Still, the IEA said keeping emissions flat was not enough to prevent global temperatures from increasing by more than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the IEA said.
