"Amidst climate change, a growing population, and people consuming more of less sustainable food, how will we feed our future world? The answer may not be increasing resources--land, water, and employees--but rather improving production efficiency to create more sustainable farming of crops. The key question: How do we increase the amount of food we produce while using the same or fewer resources?" (Freethink, 2019)

"Inspired by the 2012 food shortages witnessed in New York City following Hurricane Sandy, husband and wife team Peter and Minke van Wingerden came up with the idea for a sustainable farm that floats on the sea. The need for a floating farm? One out of every four freight trucks on the road at any given time is transporting food to urban settings. If these trucks stopped running, as they often do during natural disasters, it’s estimated that grocery stores located in cities would run out of food in just three days." (Freethink, 2019)

"Is Silicon Valley killing the American cowboy? And what does a $100 chicken nugget taste like? He crosses the US to find answers, meeting the cattlemen, lawmakers and Silicon Valley up-starts who are locked in a high stakes battle over the future of our food... Craig Reucassel reports on the food revolution underway in the US that could very well change what we eat, forever. It’s coming from the ultimate disruptors, Silicon Valley, where scientists and entrepreneurs are cooking up new types of foods which threaten to take a big bite out of the profits of the multi-billion-dollar meat industry. On the menu are bleeding burgers made from plants , and chicken nuggets grown in labs from animal cells." (ABC, 2019)

"Claire Kremen believes protected areas are not enough to preserve our planet’s species and ecosystems. In her talk at Science Unlimited 2019, she showed the complementary approach of working lands conservation - where sustainable agriculture helps maintain biodiversity, provide habitat connectivity and improve climate change resilience, while sustaining the capacity for food production. Food rated emissions could increase to 50 percent by 2050 and fill up the total emissions budget that we have in order to avoid dangerous levels of climate change. Claire Kremen is the President's Excellence Chair in Biodiversity as well as Professor at the University of British Columbia, Canada. Science Unlimited is held in Montreux, Switzerland, as part of the annual Frontiers Forum." (Frontiers, 2019)
