Economics and the principle of compounding help illustrate why the world will likely run out of food in our lifetime.
Global Food Crisis
Our current methods of industrial farming will not sustain the world’s population as it grows to 10+ billion. Without change, we risk running out of food. The pace of change is “speeding up” and we will soon reach the hard limits of growth and the planet’s ability to feed the population. Currently there are 6 billion people on Earth. Within the next few decades, the population is expected to balloon to more than 12 billion people and the estimated capacity of Earth’s ability to hold and feed so many people is just 9-10 billion.
If you have not seen it yet, I highly encourage you to watch the entire Crash Course series from economist Chris Martenson.
There are currently 1 billion people in the world who do not have enough food to eat. That number will grow as our population grows. It is extremely important that we look to the future, as in all good restaurant management, in order to foresee the coming problems and correct our course.
