"The world is a much more hopeful place because of the work and life of Lester Brown. World on the Edge should be read by everyone who wants to see a better life for their children, which is just about everybody." —Ted Glick, Policy Director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network
Joel Makower of GreenBiz.com spoke with Lester recently about the challenges and opportunities in a world with a growing demand for food, a rising population and climate change. Lester said, "What's happening is that we're seeing a tightening of food supplies. We're going to see much higher food prices in the future. We've actually seen world grain prices double since early 2007 and that increase is going to continue in the future. And not only is that rise in prices likely to continue, it may well accelerate because we're pressing against the limits in so many parts of the world." Check out the full interview here.
