How Not to "Feed the World"

How Not to "Feed the World" | Roswell, Ga USA | Scoop.it

October 10, 2012 Mother Jones, Tom Philpott

 

A blistering new Oxfam report debunks the theory that export crops are the best use of land in the developing world.

This idea dominates the marketing material of giant agrichemical firms like Monsanto. "In order to feed the world's growing population, farmers must produce more food in the next fifty years than they have in the past 10,000 years combined"...

The globe's farms are already producing enough food to feed 12 billion people—twice the current population and a third again more than the peak of 9 billion expected to be reached in 2050. Yet at least 925 million people lack access to enough to eat. What causes hunger isn't insufficient crop yields but rather people's economic relationships to food: whether they have access to land to grow it, or sufficient income to buy it.

Feeding the world requires a flow with Mother Nature, not Man giving a damn and creating GMO food.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, December 28, 2013 3:48 PM

Will intuitive reasoning prevail before we make the eart so toxic that no one will survive? Will we be able to do it in time?
