The Fate of Food: What We'll Eat in a Bigger, Hotter World
With crop production increasingly threatened by unpredictable weather and a world population expected to grow 30 percent by midcentury, how are we going to feed everyone? The race to reinvent the global food system is on, and solutions you’ve probably never heard of are already in play. One company is tackling the problems of industrial agriculture by growing cell-based meat in a lab, eliminating both the need for animal slaughter and the grains we grow to feed them. Imagine a world where industrial animal farming and its harmful greenhouse gases no longer exist, where beef, poultry, and fish are consumed without interfering with the food chain. Hear from that company’s CEO, as well as a journalist who traveled around the world to meet other pioneers of the future of food. Stick around after the event for a book signing with Amanda Little.
