2063 Fields of Plenty

Cosmos magazine provides a fascinating article on the implications of efforts to overcome the world food crisis, thus highlighting how heightened crop production doesn’t come without a daunting price; the solution to mass starvation brings up the consequences of vastly increased greenhouse gas levels, greater use of toxic pesticides, and the ever-present threat of climate change. It also discusses the merits of research and development into transplanting carbon concentrating mechanisms into C3 plants, a relevant application of the studies being undergone in the CAPP project!
