Planet Earth is feeling the heat. Temperatures are rising and current projections say that 9.6 billion of us will inhabit the planet by 2050. And with climate change already taking a toll on crops, fresh water supplies, and other critical resources, many wonder how we will manage to feed an increasingly hot and hungry planet. Journalist Lisa Palmer has traveled the world documenting the innovations of people and organizations on the front lines of fighting the food gap. She shares those stories in her new book, “Hot, Hungry Planet: The Fight to Stop a Global Food Crisis in the Face of Climate Change.” That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW.
Lisa Palmer is a Senior Fellow at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center and is a former Wilson Center Public Policy Scholar with the Environmental Change and Security Program. As an independent journalist Palmer has reported almost exclusively on climate change, the environment, and business sustainability since 2008.
This Wilson Center video talk connects to the World Affairs Council Cover to Cover call with Lisa Palmer on July 18th.
