Thread 1. For many the main takeway from this report seems to people should 'eat less meat and become a vegetarian' otherwise we face a food crisis. Its clearly a good thing for many reasons to cut meat consumption - health, climate etc. But whats missing from this story....
2. Well first of all - 1 in 3 people already face hunger issues, close to billion face malnutrition not in the future but right now. So the hunger crisis is happening -but of course its happening to people in the global South so it only matters when it might impact 'rich' people
3. Yet a 1/3 of all the food produced is wasted and a 1/3 of all soil eroded. You would be forgiven for thinking this was a result of something magical that could only be fixed by 'individual consumers' changing their habits rather than this has been deliberately engineered.

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
