Our food system has unsustainable growth. Moreover, eating cheap pushes increased soil & health costs to the future. Dumping excess/cheap food makes economic sense. Add compounded feedback loops, subsidies and dependencies of just a few crops & we are in to hit a triple wall 1/5
Sound scientific data-based recommendation is to climb up to the wall is to purposefully increase food prices, force crop diversification & remove subsidies. Build resilience, mitigate effects & finance increased costs and adaptation of env/ag/health. ~A food Kyoto protocol. 2/5
But this is 100% DOA, it would never fly for political, cultural & [micro]economic reasons, hitting poorest people everywhere the most. Good example of the limits of data-driven (vs data-informed) policy. No eater, voter, manufacturer would like to increase everyday food tax. 3/5
Meanwhile tech aims to avoid costly/slow behavior change, and cash-in on IP and patents, by replacing meat (big part of problem) aiming for a transparent cheaper fake meat. A market solution to a global problem, which increases inequality, and avoids addressing the future. 4/5
In the end, the simplest most effective thing 99% of us could do for sustainable agriculture, environment health and climate? Eat less. Eat less meat. Eat less cheap food. #vegan 5/5
