I’m doing a prerecorded online presentation to the V Congresso Nacional de Alimentos e Nutrição, Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto, at 8:00 p.m. on my book Unsavory Truth (Um Verdade Indigesta). Information about the conference is here. It runs from October 4 to 8.
Weekend reading: food and climate change
I recently ran across this useful website: Climate Change Resources, with live links to each of these sections.
But it also has a general section on the impact of food production and consumption, with ideas about what to think about:
- Eating food that is locally grown and sustainably raised
Eating less meat which can have a significant impact on deforestation
- Reducing foods with palm oil can again impact deforestation
Being attentive to food waste
Thinking a bit more about fish?
It also links to the World Resources Institute’s How to sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050, in 21 charts.
This, in turn comes from a WRI report, Creating a Sustainable Food Future: A Menu of Solutions to Feed Nearly 10 Billion People by 2050.
We have plenty of work to do. And here are plenty of ideas about where to start.
