Global Food Problems about Justice, not scarcity PDF Print E-mail

Anna Lappé, has just released Diet for a Hot Planet, which shows how much our global food system  drives the climate crisis—even more than transportation.  The destructive planet-heating food production and distribution we now experience are consequences of the centralizing control of farmland, processing, and distribution by global mega-corporations.  Providing food for the world's population does not have to be that way.  Agriculture itself can be part of the solution since ecological farming actually binds carbon in the soil.  Such earth-friendly, hunger-ending farming is proving its potential from Ethiopia to Brazil to India to the U.S.  Read Lappe's mother's article at Yes, a nonprofit publication that supports people’s active engagement in building a just and sustainable world.
