Food fuels the mind, body, and soul. It’s one of the greatest unifiers across countries and cultures. But right now, the way we get our food is unsustainable. And worse, it’s killing the planet.
If you think we’re just trying to Al Gore you, consider a few facts: Today, over a third of arable land is being used for agriculture; mostly for meat production, a huge contributor to global warming. Raising cattle creates more greenhouse gases than all the planes, trains, and automobiles combined.
All of this means we’re on the verge of a food crisis. But thankfully, scientists and entrepreneurs are reimagining food production, so maybe if they get it right, we’ll all avoid starving (fingers crossed!).
The real question is, what’s going to be on our plates when 2050 hits. Will we even need plates at all?
