The phosphorus crisis: A growing concern for sustainable food
In 1800, for the first time ever, humanity's population reached 1 billion; only 200 years later and there are 7 billion of us. Today we produce enough food to feed 10 billion, global hunger as a percentage of the population is decreasing and caloric intake is increasing. Achieving this has been dependent on our relationship with our planet; how we manipulate it and how it controls us. We have prospered due to revolutions in agriculture and water supply, but these developments come at a cost. Daniel assesses the food and water challenges of the coming century and opportunities to overcome these.
