How Can We Feed the World?

In today's culture when we ask the question how are we going to feed the world it is generally with the assumption that our current food and agriculture system is relatively stable and that we simply need to intensify what we have been doing for the past century---produce more food for a growing population. That perspective makes at least two assumptions which we now need to question, first, that feeding the world is simply a production problem, and second, that all of the resources which were available to us in the past century---cheap energy, surplus water, stable climates, etc will continue to be there for us in the foreseeable future.  Both assumptions now need to be questioned and a new approach to addressing the problem of hunger needs to be developed.

America's Climate Century

Iowa State Senator Rob Hogg, author of America’s Climate Century, is touring Iowa colleges and communities to call on Iowans to take climate action. Senator Hogg argues climate is the defining historical challenge of our century – and we need to make the fight against climate change our new national purpose.
