A new report is warning that a pending food crisis may force the world's population to adopt a vegetarian diet over the course of the next 40 years. I was a vegetarian for a while...then I remembered bacon. No, seriously. If I need to give up meat because livestock require disportionately high rates of water I may as well just end it all now.
This is the problem with technology. We're coming up with these medicines and doing all this research to keep people alive longer... so 9 billion people will need to be fed by 2050, which mean that the current global trend toward diets rich in animal protein is simply unsustainable. GET AWAY FROM MY BACON!
