Next up Waste Not about how the state of Colorado is dealing with food waste and waste from CAFO’s to create non fossil fuel based energy. It always makes me angry when I hear corporate hacks on TV who work for Monsanto or some other large corporate agriculture concern about how we need to innovate to keep up with feeding the worlds ever-increasing population. The truth is in this country we could feed all the hungry just on the food with throw away. We don’t need to grow any more or raise any more livestock we just really need to not be so wasteful, figure out better ways to distribute food. I walk by Whole Foods almost daily and the amount of food they throw out is astounding and they are not unique: instead of trying to genetically engineer food so that corporations can own seeds that are then only sold with a proprietary pesticide/herbicide why not spend all that money on just better using the food we already have? Oh right there’s no money in that.
