In this issue, National Geographic explains that with our world’s population expected to increase from 7 billion to 9 billion by 2050, we are going to have to double crop production if we are to feed everyone. They explain that slashing more forest to create cropland is not an option, as we have already caused too much deforestation for the purpose of creating grazing land for cattle. National Geographic argues that we must become more efficient with the way we produce food: “It would be far easier to feed 9 billion people by 2050 if more of the crops we grew ended up in human stomachs”, instead of being fed to farm animals. They explain, “For every 100 calories of grain we feed animals, we get only about 40 new calories of milk, 22 calories of eggs, 12 of chicken, 10 of pork, or 3 of beef.” The crux is that the smart action to take to feed the most people, would be to eat the grain directly instead of wastefully feeding it to farm animals.
