2013-04-19-Consumedbookcover.jpg What happens on this planet over the next four decades has the potential to fundamentally alter life as we know it. By 2050, the world's population is expected to reach 9 billion people--that's 9 billion hungry humans--while climate change increasingly interferes with the way we produce our food. At the same time, few of us know where that food comes from, let alone how to grow it, and we are at the mercy of multinationals that control the food chain, with little insight into the damage their methods are inflicting on the planet. This puts our future at risk.
