    Obama Talks Global Food In A Time Of Climate Change

    Barack Obama on food and climate change: ‘We can still act and it won’t be too late’; The former president addresses the greatest challenges facing the world, and what we can do about them

    Barak Obama, May 25, 2017 (UK Guardian)

    (Editor’s Note: President Obama’s essay is worth reading in its entirety)

    “During the course of my presidency, I made climate change a top priority, because I believe that, for all the challenges that we face, this is the one that will define the contours of this century…No nation, whether it’s large or small, rich or poor, will be immune from the impacts…We are already experiencing it…Our changing climate is already making it more difficult to produce food, and we’ve already seen shrinking yields and spiking food prices that, in some cases, are leading to political instability. And when most of the world’s poor work in agriculture, the stark imbalances that we’ve worked so hard to close between developed and developing countries will be even tougher to close. The cost will be borne by people in poor nations that are least equipped to handle it…[T]he good news is that there are steps we can take that will make a difference…The path to a sustainable food future will require unleashing the creative power of our best scientists, and engineers and entrepreneurs, backed by public and private investment, to deploy new innovations in climate-smart agriculture. Better seeds, better storage, crops that grow with less water, crops that grow in harsher climates…” click here for more
