Food supply crisis could lead to vegetarianism, experts warn

28/08/2012 11:05:56 AM

Experts kicking off World Water Week have issued a dire warning: If we don’t change our habits, the global population may have to abandon its meat-heavy meals or risk facing a food supply crisis by the year 2050.

It should start in our own families. Teach our kids what’s good and what’s not. I hope food supply crisis wont happen. BTW, what’s your source?

These dire predictions are ALWAYS based on current technologies, never taking into account that humans adopt to change just as well as most species on this planet. Now, for instance…if this study took into consideration the new technologies that the Saudi’s are adopting to desalinazation of seawater, and the fact that the US Navy can support 4000 sailors on an aircraft carrier at sea for months on end with made fresh water, they might have a different outlook. But no…they just look at inland aquifiers and write nonsense down. I guess the Saudi’s realize the oil train won’t last for ever, and they do make a lot of kiddies, so they needed to invest in their own water supply, which is the sea. It works, and we can get the technology. We can de-engineer it, buy it, or just build our own. Yeah, the farmers in Nebraska will cry that their land is not near any water, but we move oil, can we not build water pipes like oil pipes?
Change and technology. Like when the people who count the earth’s oil said we would run out in 2010, then 2020, then 2050. Then they just kind of shut up as gas mileage kept rising.

Bertha, with ammo you can get the other things…Why take up room for all the other stuff when you can use the space as a dance floor and then pillage when the need arises.

I hope Tennessee’s right and their predictions are wrong.

I think Tennessee is right, proper application of technology can overcome a lot, but it will be expensive. The days of what currently is nearly free water will end, and food, especially meat, will get much more expensive.

Scientists are already able to grow animal protein in petri dishes (from bovine stem cells, no blood, no bones). I saw it on the BBC, so it’s definitely true.

Do a search for Lab grown meat

I wonder if they could grow it in BBQ sauce

Renners, Renners, Renners, you’re my man. If it’s on the internet it’s true. If it’s out of Wikipedia it’s gospel.
Surfside, I’m not much for lamb out of the petri dish or off the hoof. However, I would try beef. Spam is nice also although I’ve never seen a Spam. They must pasture high in the mountains.

Beef tastes good. However, I don’t like to eat spam. They taste bad.

DKV, years ago I worked an a high rise project with a big ass Arkansas boy. I really liked this guy, sweet demeanor and a thicker redder beard than mine. Any way I digress. He shared with me all his gatherings for the end of days when the blacks rise up and the bombs get dropped. Ya, it was an unexpected sharing that he was total nutters. But after saying how he had 6 months supply of wate,r food and ammo down in a holehidy he asked if I had thought to do the same?

I jokenly said,”Nope, ‘cause all I need when that day comes is your address and my S&W 9mm.” The Dude grabbed me up and said he’d kill me now if he really believed I’d come. Ok… maybe I need to work on my sense of humor. Anyway we worked on seperate teams after that and I never said another word to him about it. I just kept my 9mm out in the truck just in case.
