The World is on the Brink of a Major Food Crisis

by Thom Hartmann posted Aug 7 2012 6:11PM


For the first time in recent history, humanitarian organizations are responding to three major food crises at once – one in West Africa, one in East Africa, and one in Yemen.  Accelerating climate change and dwindling resources have created several severe food shortages – adding 43 million more people around the world to the ranks of those who will go hungry this year alone.

As Barbara Stocking, the chief executive with OxFam Great Britain, warned, “without urgent action, things will only get worse, and multiple major crises could quickly move from being an exception to being the norm.”  Enough food exists, but the failures of global capitalism and industrial food systems prevent solutions to the problem.  If the United States doesn’t take the lead in using resources and energy more responsibly soon, then the rest of the world is going to descend into chaos, and we as a nation will go down with them.

Listen to me LIVE Monday through Friday 3 PM to 6 PM on WWRL 1600.
