我们能养活世界吗?

伦敦—20世纪60年代,绿色革命——包括开发高产庄家品种、扩大灌溉基础设施以及将现代肥料和杀虫剂推广到发展中国家——刺激了全球农业产品产量。但饥饿阴影依然挥之不去,其中影响最大的因素是短缺和粮食价格波动。

据预计,2050年全球人口将突破90亿。获得食品安全意味着保证所有人都可以以负担得起的方式持续地获得合适的营养,不管土地和水资源的限制、气候变化和随着收入升高而逐渐流行的西方式资源密集型餐饮。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.
