Diferenta e risipa si gunoiul din spatele nostru. Pentru weekendul acesta avem o lista cu video-uri care ne ajuta sa intelegem mai bine ca (oricat de lustruit ar fi acest cliseu) chiar suntem ceea ce mancam. Si, mai ales, ceea ce ramane dupa ce mancam. Sunt, mai jos, cateva video-uri care vorbesc despre risipa si initiativele recente care se lupta cu ea. Ocazie cu care ne reamintim si cateva ciudatenii ale speciei umane, cum ar fi, de exemplu, discriminarea morcovilor strambi si ale tuturor legumelor care incalca legile formelor perfecte.
Trecem apoi la reciclare, dar nu cea obisnuita de genul sticla la sticla si hartie la hartie. "Pagpag" este un obicei din Manila care recicleaza resturile din restaurante. In Zabbaleen, zeci de mii de oameni traiesc folosind tot ce pot dintr-o groapa de gunoi: de la mancare, la jucarii. Ajungem apoi la hrana propriu zisa si tulburarile de alimentatie. Suntem aici, in epoca in care mai multi oameni sufera din cauza obezitatii decat din cauza foamei.

A global food crisis may be less than a decade away | Sara Menker
Sara Menker quit a career in commodities trading to figure out how the global value chain of agriculture works. Her discoveries have led to some startling predictions: "We could have a tipping point in global food and agriculture if surging demand surpasses the agricultural system's structural capacity to produce food," she says. "People could starve and governments may fall." Menker's models predict that this scenario could happen in a decade -- that the world could be short 214 trillion calories per year by 2027. She offers a vision of this impossible world as well as some steps we can take today to avoid it.
