Food is the most important source of energy for life. In times of plenty, it looked as if its quantities were unlimited and taken for granted. However, it is already obvious that this isn't the case! And tomorrow, this fact will dawn on us with an even greater sense of clarity. Without food, there is no future. Harsh but a clear message for nine billion people who shall soon inhabit our beautiful planet!
More people, more food. If the population growth continues as seems to be the case, we'll soon need twice as much food as we currently produce. Who will produce it in such quantities? Where? And what kind of food will that be? Will it be healthy and tasty?
Do you ever ask yourself these questions? Not only population growth, climate changes too are also the factors which spit on the plate from which we eat. Deserts expand, the amounts of drinking water diminish, and outstanding climate changes reduce and demolish our crops with an ever increasing frequency.
True, this picture is not nice and it surely won't get any better, unless we start changing it ourselves. Whenever and however we can.
