Product Details

Climate models show that global crop production will decline every decade for the rest of this century due to drought, heat, and flooding. Water supplies are in jeopardy. Meanwhile, the world’s population is expected to grow another 30 percent by midcentury. How will we feed nine billion people sustainably in the coming decades?

The race to reinvent the global food system is on, and the challenge is twofold: We must solve the existing problems of industrial agriculture while also preparing for the pressures ahead. Through interviews and adventures with farmers, scientists, activists, and engineers, explore the fascinating story of human innovation and new and old approaches to food production that can redefine sustainable food on a grand scale. Can GMOs actually be good for the environment—and for us? Are we facing the end of animal meat? What will it take to eliminate harmful chemicals from farming? How can a clean, climate-resilient food supply become accessible to all?Encounter the awe and optimism about the lessons of our past and the scope of human ingenuity.
