The need for creating a different method of growing and harvesting the world’s food supply is proposed in this Michael Pollan speech about the importance of sustainability in agriculture.

As the author of several award-winning books including ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals,’ the speaker often delves into important issues that need to be addressed in the food industry. This lecture explores the devastating carbon footprint that the human’s consumption of meat products has and how inefficient current methods of growing food are from a financial and environmental standpoint.

He discusses the way by which the food industry’s current practices promote an over-dependance on fossil fuels and that the eradication of these archaic methods and an advancement toward more environmentally-friendly measures can change the world.
