9 – 1st World Tastes
We’re in the middle of the Earth’s sixth mass extinction crisis. The current mass extinction differs from all others in that its being driven by a single species, basically, us, rather than a planetary or a galactic physical process. The last crisis began in 1800 with the harnessing of fossil fuels. With enormous, cheap energy at its disposal, the human population grew rapidly from 1 billion in 1800 to over 7.7 billion people today. We’ll most likely reach 10 billion by 2055! It’s estimated that no population of a large vertebrate animal in the history of the planet has ever grown this much, this fast, or with such devastating consequences to planet Earth. Only 71 percent of Earth’s land surface is defined as habitable. Humans use half of that global habitable area for agricultural production. Naturally, everyone wants to enjoy the lifestyle of the 1st world countries, but is it actually possible for that many people? We’ll most likely need to change both the ways that 1st and 3rd world countries operate for human beings’ maximum longevity.
8 – Food shortages
The global food system is under chronic pressure to meet a rising demand. One scientific model developed by scientists at Anglia Ruskin University’s Global Sustainability Institute suggests that society may collapse by 2040. This collapse will be due to catastrophic food shortages if policies don’t change according to the team. The model shows that our current way of life appears to be unsustainable and could lead to dramatic food shortages. The science team said that they ran the model forward to the year 2040, along a business-as-usual trajectory based on the current ‘do-nothing’ trends . Or in other words, what happens without anyone moving a finger to change the way we’re living and consuming now. The results show that global society essentially collapses as food production falls permanently short of consumption. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization projects that global agricultural production will need to more than double by 2050 to close the gap between food supply and demand.
7 – Big Farming
Because we’re possibly facing a food shortage crisis as we’re trying to feed an ever-growing population, there have been efforts to produce food at a massive scale. However, we may be doing more harm than good. Traditional cultures have developed systems of farming that maintain a natural equilibrium with nature. The nutrients harvested from the soil are balanced by organic waste that’s fed back into the soil. By contrast, generations of expansion by agriculture businesses in the First World have displaced sustainable farming wisdom. This has produced a modern-day class of agricultural business-dependent consumeristic farmers across the world. These farmers buy patented seeds, they buy special fertilizers and pesticides, and they buy machinery and fuel. This system depletes the natural soil biology and can only be carried out up to a certain point, after which the soil is pretty much useless. Today, entire regions of previously rich agricultural land have been brought to ruin using these unsustainable practices.
