Global Food Waste Hampering Food Security, Increasing Climate Change, Study Says

Washington Post: Our wasted food is a huge environmental problem — and it’s only getting worse
“…A study just out in the journal Environmental Science and Technology concludes that we’re already producing way more food than the world actually needs — but a lot of the excess is being wasted, instead of used to feed people who need it. That’s a big problem for global food security as well as for the climate, given the huge amounts of greenhouse gases that go into producing the extra food — and the study suggests that the problem will only get worse in the future…” (Harvey, 4/7).
