Food Shortages

The world needs to produce at least 50% more food to feed 9 billion people by 2050. But climate change could cut crop yields by more than 25%. The land, biodiversity, oceans, forests, and other forms of natural capital are being depleted at unprecedented rates. Unless we change how we grow our food and manage our natural capital, food security—especially for the world’s poorest—will be at risk.

The scary reality is that grocery stores hold only a three- or four-day supply of food. Our food system is frighteningly insecure and in grave danger of failure. We’re only a few days from starvation, and we’re liable one day to find our supermarket shelves empty and the populace in panic.

Most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck with no real food storage at home. Not only that, they are completely dependent on the distribution of goods. They are in no way self sufficient, without the means or ability to provide food for themselves.
