So.. okay. I have no idea, but I just felt like talking about this. It may be about food, but somewhat not. Previous class we watched the TED talk “Dan Barber: How I fell in love with a fish” and he talked about fish farms where we would have enough fish and of course other food productions. However, when I thought over what was going on now, about the video, about the world, and future… I wondered. Do we really have enough food?
So far, there are enough food to serve every person in earth. There are people who are starving, however if you were to share your food with them, there are enough I suppose. However after twenty years, thirty, fifty, hundred… are there really going to be enough food? We already are experiencing some endangered animals and other extinct species. Come to think of, us humans are already killing so much for ourselves to survive. More like… killing more than we need for ‘money’.
We all know about the food chain. How frog eats insects, snake eats frog, eagle eats snakes, human basically eats all of them… It seems we are kind of ruining the food chain, don’t you think? We eat basically everything and what if we clear some of them out and the other animals has nothing more to eat? What will we do then? The other animals will starve, then they will die, then we will have nothing to eat.. Vegetables might be a choice, however some animals or insects helps our ecosystem and helps crops to grow… and if they don’t exist then there will be no more crops and what will there be left for humans.
I had some random conversation about this with some friends and they did agree with me about humans eating everything and this ‘not enough food’ thing might happen one day in our life. Well, some may agree with me and some may not. Even if I thought this way, i don’t think anything will change. There are billions of people out there hungry or craving for more money by selling ‘food’.
But really, are there really enough food for us? When will this come to an end, I’m curious (although I hope this doesn’t occur).
