Food MythBusters: How can we feed the world—today and tomorrow?

One of the topics we examined in the IPPE 2017 course was food, particularly our consumption and the sustainability of food production.  Here’s the link (below) from Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff project (we are already in her community map for screening the Story Of Stuff). Anna Lappé’s video is an equally critical take on Agri-Business.  The website is called Food MythBusters, here’s their description and the first part of Anna Lappé’s video.

“The biggest players in the food industry—from pesticide pushers to fertilizer makers to food processors and manufacturers—spend billions of dollars every year not selling food, but selling the idea that we need their products to feed the world. But, do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world? Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we need—today and in the future? Our first Food MythBusters film takes on these questions in under seven minutes. So next time you hear them, you can too.”
