In our continuing work with Annie Leonard & The Story of Stuff Project, I am pleased to feature this Food MythBusters 7-minute video released by Anna Lappé, a friend of Story of Stuff. Anna Lappe is a food writer, an author and an activist (BoomerWarrior Editor).
The debate intensifies over how best to produce the food required to feed an exploding global population in an environment increasingly plagued by the ravages of rampant climate change – droughts, floods, hurricanes, typhoons, soil degradation, deforestation.
The video debunks the myth that we need industrial agriculture to feed the world. It addresses two questions found on the Food MythBusters site:
- Do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world?
- Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we need—today and in the future?
The world community needs to prepare for the challenges and the emerging crises of the future – food and water shortages. See recent Blogs – Overpopulation & Climate Change: Food Crisis and Future Hunger Wars.
