By B.M. Khanna , The Washington TimesA new report released Thursday by the World Resources Institute says we are in uncharted territory in terms of food security.
The institute says global food security is on the brink of collapse, and the world is in a race to the bottom.
The world has lost about 10 percent of its farmland in the past century, while livestock production has increased by almost 50 percent in the same period.
In other words, the world’s farmers are losing out on about one-third of their farmland every year, the report found.

What’s the next big issue?
How do we feed the hungry?”
In a world in which we have about 5.2 billion people, the food crisis is so severe that it could lead to a food crisis that could threaten the global economy, the authors write in the report.
The world is facing an extreme food crisis, with about 6 billion people unable to feed themselves.
It is estimated that a third of the world population, or more than 4 billion people worldwide, have to subsist on less than one-fifth of what they produce.
Food production is expected to grow only 1 percent a year in coming decades, and as it does so, global food prices will increase, according to the report, “Worlds Hunger: How Do We Feed the Hungry?”
In the world of agriculture, the researchers say, the situation is worse than it was when the global financial crisis erupted in 2007.
The global food crisis has now lasted at least five years.
There are more than 10 times as many people as there were when the financial crisis began in 2007, and about 7.5 times as much land as there are now, the study says.
As a result, it’s expected that world food prices in 2030 will reach nearly 20 times the current level, the worst level in history, the scientists write.
The researchers estimate that the global population will reach more than 1.8 billion people by 2030, up from about 675 million today.
And as food production increases, so too does the number of people needed to feed them.
In 2050, the need to feed an additional 583 million people will be greater than that for the world to feed 705 million people, according the study.
The report’s authors also say we need to do more to create a sustainable food system.
The global food sector is facing a global crisis, and we are racing to the finish line, said John Gartner, a co-author of the report and an associate professor of agricultural economics at Rutgers University.
In the next 10 years, global demand for food is expected grow by about 2 percent a day.
We have to do our part to stop the tide of food destruction.
In a recent conference in New York, President Barack Obama warned that the world could face a global food shortage by 2030 if we don’t act quickly to prevent the global warming catastrophe.
“We have the power to prevent a catastrophic rise in global food consumption,” Obama said at the White House.
“We have to prevent it from spiraling out of control, because the sooner we do, the sooner people can start to reverse the damage and start to recover from this.”
