Chapter 9: Feeding Nine Billion

There are 925 million hungry people in the world today—here’s how we feed everyone. Learn about the failures of industrial agriculture and the true potential for biotechnology. Meet Dickson Despommier and see why the crops grown in a 30-story vertical farm could feed 50,000 people with zero-transportation costs and no environmental impacts. Solve our protein problems with the novel aquaculture solutions and cultured meat—that is, steak grown from stem cells—and see how the tools of agro-ecology provide incredible improvements in developing world agriculture.
