The food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe are critical to our health and well-being.
But the health of our planet is not guaranteed.
We all live on the brink of catastrophic events, like climate change, which are expected to take us much closer to disaster than anything we’ve seen in recent history.
We need a second agricultural Revolution.
What could that revolution look like?
Let’s take a look.
The Third Revolution The food revolution, as it’s called, will bring about the biggest and most fundamental change to the way humans live and work for the betterment of the planet.
A revolution that starts with better agriculture, like a better food system, is one that will benefit all of us, but it will also create the most powerful social force to pull us all forward.
In fact, a revolution that happens now would be as powerful as a revolution of the future.
We can do better with our food and the soil.
As we continue to grow food crops, we can improve soil health, reduce the impact of soil erosion and soil loss, and enhance soil resilience to extreme weather and climate change.
The food system is what keeps us healthy, nourishes us and helps us live better lives.
The Food Revolution’s Impact on the World The first food revolution was the industrial revolution of agriculture, which gave rise to vast new industries.
That revolution, however, changed the world.
As the industrial age closed and new products emerged, the global food system changed, too.
The agricultural revolution has already changed agriculture from a small, local enterprise into a global one.
We now produce and sell food at home.
But there’s more to agriculture than that.
We’re also involved in growing and processing crops, harvesting and processing meat, and building and maintaining farms and factories.
The global food supply is more than $4 trillion, making it one of the largest commodities in the world and the third-largest in terms of total consumption.
With the current crop production, we’re expected to produce about 3.4 billion tons of food by 2050, more than all the world’s major crops combined.
The biggest challenge facing us is that we’re still dependent on a global food market.
This global market is the largest single source of food for more than 70 percent of the world population.
Our food system has been unable to meet the needs of the population as it is.
It has also been failing to meet people’s needs as they have shifted away from eating meat, dairy, and grains, and toward foods that are higher in protein and lower in fat.
In many ways, the food system does not work.
Our agricultural system, while it is producing food, is also consuming much of it.
In the U.S., we consume about 50 percent of our food supply through agricultural production.
In China, we consume 60 percent of it through agriculture.
In Europe, we use almost half of our farmlands to grow our food.
But because the food supply continues to expand and diversify, the amount of food produced and consumed per person has continued to decline.
As a result, the world is experiencing a third food revolution.
Our current food system requires farmers to farm and grow crops and to use large quantities of water and land to grow them.
The second food revolution will require farmers to do the same, but this time they’ll use less land, reduce their water use, and use less water.
We’ve already seen an exponential growth in the number of small farms in the U
