Title : World’s food supply: Predictions vs production solutions with probable effects on the poor


The world today is inundated by predictions from the media on the future “devastation” of the world’s food supply. For supporting evidence, the media, politicians, celebrities and pretentious scientists, cite Thomas Robert Malthus’ theory, which has been proven wrong time and time again. We are never given the complete picture to determine the truth. We are presented only with lies and twisted facts through the process of omission. The theories of William Godwin and Marquis de Condorcet’s which have been proven correct each and every time in all areas and disciplines, are consistently avoided.The fact is that there are viable solutions, but not the ones that are being touted in the media. Relevant and real solutions for the environment and our energy supply directly impact our food production in a positive way, thus eliminating the hunger currently creating destitution for many poor countries. The real problem is that these solutions are always sacrificed to ascertain a financial gain and to secure a position already held at a podium by the majority of world leaders.As a result, the poor around the world will continue to suffer the most. Only when the possibility for viable worldwide teamwork that looks at all possible connecting solutions without the lens of “profits” becomes a reality, will the hunger and thirst be quenched.My presentation will bring to light the truths regarding Earth’s food supply and its effects on the environment and impoverished nations around the globe. Sadly, many of these solutions do not make for exciting news, but they do point to an exciting future if implemented with humanity’s best interests in mind. Humankind’s intelligence has prevailed throughout history. There are viable solutions to clean energy that NASA space shuttles have used since 1981, the problem we face is that no one has devised a way to make money from this clean endless energy answer. The process of progression for energy production is also halted in all the disadvantaged nations among us. From Haiti to the Congo we are helping to keep poor nations poor and preventing the “student” with high morals and scruples by the kerosene lantern from growing up healthy and finding the last needed break-through for successful hydrogen fuel cells to be our world’s affordable solution. We all know that many countries already have hydrogen fuel cell technology, but greed is preventing further development because after equipment purchase there are only maintenance fees, no monthly fuel or utility bills. Food, energy and the environment all have a “cause and effect” and they are all connected to one another. Food waste, farming innovations and clean water are all critical areas for discussion. We will examine the solutions that can be a catalyst for worldwide teamwork based on the careful examination of complete and truthful facts and the innovations that are already in our reach.

Audience Take Away:

  • The audience will be able to take greed off the table in all their future discussions by presenting encouragement about the connections between our environment, energy supply and food production, and place on the table the actions needed to be implemented for clean worldwide solutions.
