TCAN: Can we feed the world without destroying the planet?

How are we going to meet the food demands of a population that will grow to over 9 billion by 2050? A dinner and presentation sponsored by the Yale Alumni Association of the Northwest. $40, cash bar.  Signup deadline November 10.

How are we going to meet the food demands of a population that will grow to over 9 billion by 2050? Do we increase the land dedicated to agriculture, often at the expense of forests and other habitats. Do we increase the yield of crops, i.e. agricultural productivity, of existing farm land, with greater use of fertilizer, and nitrogen? Do either have implications for carbon emissions and climate change? Join Dr. Ford Runge as he responds to each of these questions, and suggests how we can expand food production while minimizing the impact on climate change.
