Jacket has light soiling and a little edge crinkling. ; Ingenuity Project, The; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 336 pages; From global famine to fast-food fat, from mad cows to depleted soil, what ingenuity is available to alleviate the world’s most pressing problems of food. How can we nourish billions of people without risking our environment? How do we make our food safe? Feeding the Future: From Fat to Famine, How to Solve the World’s Food Crises provides realistic, practical answers to these urgent and challenging questions. Building on the success of Fueling the Future, a national bestseller that was nominated for a National Business Book Award and a Canadian Science Writers’ Association Award, editors Andrew Heintzman and Evan Solomon once again assembled a collection of the clearest, brightest minds from around the world, this time to confront the problem of how we will all eat in the future. The contributors, who include such leading thinkers on food as William I. Atkinson, Kelly Brownell, Frances Moore Lappe and Anna Lappe, Ian MacLachlan, Sylvia Ostry, Carl Safina, Eric Schlosser, and David Wheeler, tackle issues ranging from industrial farming and sustainability to global trade and nutrition. Their ingenious ideas encompass solutions to the developed world’s obesity epidemic, business models for sustainable food production, and emerging technologies and sciences, and they debate the merits of controversial techniques such as the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). By offering workable solutions to the world’s food crises, the contributors to Feeding the Future satisfy one of our most pressing needs: simple, healthy answers. Feeding the Future is the second book in the Ingenuity Project, an annual multimedia series that also includes CBC Radio and Web programs and a magazine partnership with Maclean’s. [582] .
