Hunger in the world

by: Joshua Hehe

sustainability

Right now there are about seven billion people on Earth and a large portion of them are malnourished. Furthermore, as the population increases, so too does the global need for food. Unfortunately, in the current production model, corporations tend to feed most of the food in the world to other food for a relatively small number of people to then consume. That is to say, companies grow plants for animals to eat, and then only the most affluent individuals get to dine on them.

Rather than doing this, we could feed far more people if everyone would just become vegetarians instead. The problem is that the operating procedures that are in place perpetuate a carnivorous consumer culture. This is a huge problem. There is so much water being wasted in the current agricultural methods. The logistics involved in the transport of these goods also requires a great deal of oil to be used. In addition to this, the models in place are terribly inefficient and unsustainable uses of land. This system only serves to line the pockets and bellies of the wealthy elite, with little to no regard for anything or anyone else.

To transition the world to a humane vegan diet, we need to invest far more into local vertical farms all across the world. In this way, biotech plant-based foods will provide meat alternatives with far more nutrition. These laboratory grade edibles are revolutionary. Scientists have even found clever ways to make it all delicious too. By oxygenating the roots of vegetables grown hydroponically, it’s possible to make healthy food that actually tastes great.

It’s so inhumane for people to go hungry in this world, and vertical farms are really the only thing that can save people from continued starvation. This is why it is so vital for everyone to become a vegan as soon as possible. The only way that everyone can eat is if we all give up meat. In this way we will end the suffering of countless animals, including starving children.

To eliminate animal consumption altogether humanity must eventually embrace vertical farming. This is an inevitable step that our species must take that I am fully in favor of for so many reasons. For one thing, such a marvel of engineering completely eliminates the need for harmful fertilizers and pesticides. Plus, the specific spectrum lighting used to make all of this happen allows food to be harvested year round. The climate controlled buildings also take up very little space on the ground, making them easy to incorporate into cities of all sizes. This forward thinking concept is definitely the way of the future.

hunger

More and more people are now focusing on the poor.

A breath of fresh air is blowing on the surface of the earth. More and more people are now focusing on the poor.

Man can choose between darkness and light. On the part of the people there are times of both light and darkness, fidelity and infidelity, obedience, and rebellion; times of being a pilgrim people and times of being a people adrift. In our personal history too, there are both bright and dark moments, lights and shadows. If we love our brothers and sisters, we walk in the light; but if our heart is closed, if we are dominated by pride, deceit, self-seeking, then darkness falls within us and around us.

For the coming year and the years to come, may the people of the world shun pride and selfishness and open up their hearts to their fellow man.

King Global Earth & Environmental sciences Corporation – Striking this balance, between crop production and environmental impact for future generations, takes real innovation. At King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation, this is what we do.

Our world populations are rapidly expanding. Our planet is not. In a world where too many already go hungry, we, as citizen of the Earth, all have a very daunting challenge on our hands: feeding the estimated nine billion of us who will inhabit Earth by the year 2050 will require food to be grown on roughly the same amount of land that we use for farming today. Fortunately, we have King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation.

King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation is now turning its attention to the study of soil fertility and soil chemistry to help secure and grow the food supply for the future generations. This challenge is not just an agronomic issue; it is also an economic and freedom issue. Many developing countries struggle because their people have very little economic freedom. Agronomy by itself will not solve these issues. Agricultural education will.

At King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation, our first role is to help develop and refine enhanced efficiency soil nutrients and chemical free fertilizers. Our mission is to provide food security for the world using the land we already have. This means applying the right kinds of soil nutrients and chemical free fertilizers in just the right amounts to optimize the balance between crop production and environmental impact for future generations and striking this balance takes real innovation.

With newly developed soil nutrients and chemical free fertilizers we try to optimize the amount of nutrients getting into the plant or tree to help it grow and produce a better quality produce and harvest. By applying technical and scientific innovation, we are now also working on harnessing the power of microbial life that already exist and occur in the environment. to optimize both, the plant itself and the product.

The process begins by identifying precisely which microbial form of life can help naturally stimulate plants and trees to improve their performance in areas such as potency, water and nutrient use efficiency and crop yield. We test our products on plants in the lab, we test them in the greenhouse, and finally, if it proves promising by producing more grain or better fruits, we try it out in the field on a much larger scale.

We will screen thousands of microbial forms and test thousands of soil nutrients to find just a few that work. But it is all worth it, because helping plants grow bigger, better, stronger and faster, brings real, long-term value to society, which brings us back to our mission: doing our part to help feed the world today and tomorrow.

King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation is committed to making long-term investments in science, research and the development of new products and technologies that are going to take and get us there.

There are not a lot of other companies who would both see the potential, and be willing to make that deep financial commitment to this kind of promising Eco-friendly, environmentally sound and systemic technology.

Our partners do and are committed to our success, to our mission in feeding the world, in growing a stronger and better planet.

The world is blighted by hunger, with some countries having almost half their population unable to get enough food on a daily basis. Together, we can indeed eliminate the scourge of hunger.

“Together, we can indeed eliminate the scourge of hunger” – King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation

There are around 795 million people who are undernourished around the world, the majority of which are in Africa and Asia.

According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, since 1990, considering a global population growth of 1.9 billion, the reduction in the number of hungry people has been striking. However, progress towards reaching the UN’s food security targets in some countries has been hampered by challenging global economic conditions, extreme weather events and political instability.

Today, Haiti, Zambia and the Central African Republic have the highest rates of undernourishment in the world. In all, seven of the ten most undernourished countries in the world are in Africa. Progress has been hindered by slower and less inclusive economic growth, as well as political instability and in some countries Food insecurity has also been made worse by natural and human-induced disasters.

Of one hundred twenty-nine developing countries monitored, by 2015, only seventy-two had reached the one per cent hunger target that was laid out by the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. Important factors were the stable political conditions and economic growth, as well as the “social protection policies” for the vulnerable.

In developing regions, the prevalence of undernourishment, which measures the proportion of people who are unable to consume enough food for an active and healthy life, has declined to 12.9 percent of the population, down from 23.3 percent a quarter century ago.

We must be the Zero Hunger generation

There are moments in history when common icons of that control our lives, are replaced by an empathetic compassion for those who suffer, for those on the fringe of society: the poor, the hungry, the victims of natural disasters and human atrocities and those who live in fear. Every individual deserves to fully live his life. Most, if not all, of the world’s faiths adhere to some form of the “Golden Rule”, to treat other persons as well or better than one is treated, or to some form of exhortations like to proclaim justice, to free the oppressed, to feed the hungry, to care for the poor, and to clothe those who have none.

Every 10 seconds, a five years old or younger child dies of malnutrition.”

Today, 923 million people in the world go hungry every day, most of them in developing countries. Notwithstanding this fact, a third of the food produced in the world never makes it to the consumer.

By the year 2050, the world’s population is expected to grow from about 7.3 billion to 9.6 billion. The challenge we are now facing is to double our worldwide global food production to feed those extra 2 billion people yet to be born.

As the world’s population will grow, many countries will also improve their economy and because of the increase in income of many of their population, dietary changes are to be expected. More people will be able to afford and will want to consume products like meat, milk, eggs, fish, cooking oil and other products previously not affordable.

In order to make that much more product, animals are going to need to be fed more grain, courtesy of agriculture. Who is going to provide the feed-stuff for those animals and fish? It is a real opportunity for all the producers of the world.

King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation

King Global Earth & Environmental Sciences Corporation can help you feed the world in a profitable way. One of our goal is to educate consumers about the nutritional and other benefits of eating pulse crops, as well as to marshal the capabilities of agricultural research organizations around the world in developing new, improved varieties that will help further global food security and sustainable agriculture.

Ethiopia first burned itself into the West’s collective memory with the horrific famines of 1973 and 1984, when hundreds of thousands starved to death

Today, at a time when international donors are distracted by a string of humanitarian disasters around the world, Ethiopia is in the grip of a devastating drought sparked by the worst El Niño in a generation, and aid agencies warn that food aid could run out as soon as May.

In December, they said about 10.2 million people were in need of $1.4 billion in aid, with 400,000 children severely malnourished. This is in addition to 8 million people supported by the government safety net even before the drought and the worst could be yet to come.

“Now we are begging for rain,” said Raimah Sayyed, 70, as she cuddled her half-naked grandchild and absently tore leaves off a nearby bush and chewed on them. “If the rain comes, everything will be okay.”

Do not help now and we won’t have to wait six months from now to see hungry babies dying on our television screens.
