Feeding 7+ Billion in a Warming World (Video)



Live broadcast by Ustream

I'm in D.C. today attending a conference forebodingly (but aptly) titled Feeding the World While the Earth Cooks. It's a product of the Future Tense project, a collaboration between Slate, the New America Foundation, and Arizona State University, and the first half of the conference featured discussions touching on the need to reduce meat consumption, genetically modified foods, lab grown meat, and how farmers are engaging the newfangled mode of resilience.

There's much to chew on here (when reporting on a conference about food, food-related puns are impossible to resist/avoid), so I thought I'd share the livestream here, in case any of you fine readers wanted to watch the next couple hours.

I'll write more on the concepts discussed here later on. But for now, enjoy.
