Debunking the “Feed The World” Myth

Will Harris

“You can’t feed the world that way. It’s not scaleable.”

Industrialized agriculture interests argue that factory farming is the only way to feed our growing world population. This mantra is used to justify destructive and inhumane practices that make food artificially cheap and wastefully abundant. More recently, it is the justification by the carbon-emitting agriculture industry to repackage itself as eco-friendly fake meat and “plant-based protein.”
