As humans, we all need to eat (unless we are on one of the numerous diets that have invaded the world, in which case we may eat smaller quantities, less frequently or wait in vain for ketosis). There is always pressure to produce more food and make more money from produce, that is driving societies to clear forest areas to make way for agricultural farms, and to divert fresh water towards crops even in arid desert conditions.

Along with deforestation due to uncontrolled logging for timber, this results in a loss of habitat for animals and birds, making them vulnerable and driving them closer towards extinction (not to forget the damaging contribution this makes to climate change). Indeed, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), habitat loss is probably the greatest threat to the variety of life on this planet today.

Research has shown that it is possible to feed twice the current population of earth without clearing a single new acre of land. Much of the food that is cultivated currently in developed nations goes to waste (1.3 billion tons out of 4 billion tons every year), making it a problem of not production but distribution. And it is time we think about this seriously.
