A Solution for the Global Food Crisis: Look To The Sky
In America and Europe, water and food are abundant. In fact, we produce more food than we consume. In third world countries, however, the global food crisis has reached epidemic proportions. Lack of money, proper irrigation systems, abnormal weather patterns due to climate change and even education and general accessibility are just some of the factors. However, the heart of the hunger issue (and part of the solution) lies not in the ground, but in the sky.
Any farmer will tell you in any language, if you can’t water, you can’t grow. For centuries, farmers all over the world have relied on the weather and early forms of irrigation to water their crops, keep their livestock alive and raise food that feeds small communities and large towns. With the recent shifts in the climate and global warming, weather patterns aren’t nearly as reliable as they used to be.
