Tristram Stuart: The global food waste scandal
This is an excellent talk, giving the hope that by consuming food smartly, we can keep feeding the growing world population. Consuming efficiently could also reduce our agriculture footprint. Is there a global organization that can actually look at the big sources of food waste and convert wasted food into human consumable products with longer shelf life? If not, I think there is a great opportunity here. I think companies will be more motivated in providing their waste for a good cause of feeding hungry people compare to any other use of that food.

Do you believe that our future is bright, if yes, why and if not, why not?
I agree with you on most of the things Bob. I do think that there is a social responsibility to take care of people that are going through hardship or cannot take care of themselves because this is the basic foundation of human society. However, I do agree that people should not be allowed to take advantage of society's generosity. On the leadership question, do you see that kind of leadership emerging or where is the potential of such leadership development?

Good points Peter. Being from the same generation, I can relate to what you are saying. Why do you think people feel the need for robots when lots of people are jobless? Is it because we want to pay less for the things or is it because industrialists and businessmen want more profit? If a choice was given, would people opt for little expensive products in favour of human factor in the making of it?
