the world cannot feed 9.3 billion people
The world is sleepwalking into a famine of catastrophic proportions. More than a million people in the world today are on the verge of daily starvation. Another billion are in ‘hidden hunger’. The numbers are increasing daily.
We are saving more people by offering vaccines in infancy, to let them die later through the applications of global policies which are often actually perverse. This book explains in simple language the challenges ahead, the bleak reality facing billions of poor people, some in the richest countries on earth and the inconsistency of our approach to trying to tackle world poverty.
