INFOGRAPHIC: How food waste has become a huge global problem

INFOGRAPHIC: How food waste has become a huge global problem | following geography education | Scoop.it

Every year, an estimated 1.2 to 2 billion tons of food is wasted—a massive amount of food that, if saved, would be more enough to feed the world’s hungry. Food waste isn’t just a humanitarian issue however; the problem is also a waste of land, water, energy and money. To put food wastage in perspective, Arbtech created an infographic that points out some of the world’s worst offenders and explains how food loss occurs throughout the supply chain. Click through to learn more about food waste and, most importantly, what you can do to help.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 7, 2013 10:56 PM

What is causing the sea level to rise? Where are the "hot spots" where the sea will rise the fastest? How quickly is land ice melting? 

These and many other questions related to sea level rise and global warming are shared in this infographic created by the Union of Concerned Scientists. There are also links to two additional resources. One is called "Causes of Sea Level Rise: What the Science Tells Us" and the other discusses the methodology and assumptions made in the creation of the infographic. It is also possible to download the infographic in sections. There are four facts discussed in the infographic:

* Global average sea level rise has increased 8 inches since 1880...

* Global warming is the primary cause of sea level rise.

* Sea level rise is accelerating.

* The choices we make today will determine how high sea level rises this century, how fast it occurs, and how much time we have to protect our communities.

Vloasis's curator insight, June 8, 2013 3:48 AM

Projections will vary on this, but it doesn't take a general consensus to see that it's happening.
