Can We Feed the World?
Limited Capacity seats available
This is hands down the most frequently asked question to Joel or anyone else who promotes localized, solar-driven, carbon-fertilized systems. Even most foodies and environmentalists have a deep-seated assumption that were it not for the petroleum-based fertilizer boom–the green revolution–we could not feed ourselves. Those massive Kansas wheat field and California almond groves, for most people, represent efficiency and abundance. Nothing could be further from the truth. Backyard gardens and multi-speciation are far more productive per acre. Modern scientific aerobic composting was not invented until 1943–about the same time as chemical fertilizer became widely used. In this performance, Joel will give you the tools to articulate a credible “feed the world” argument.
