Earth will have more than 9.6 billion people by 2050. With resources already scarce, how will we feed them all? Journalist Lisa Palmer (full bio.) has traveled the world for years documenting the cutting-edge innovations of people and organizations on the front lines of fighting the food gap. In this episode, WACA President and CEO Bill Clifford speaks with Palmer on her book, Hot, Hungry Planet, as she breaks down this difficult subject and paints a hopeful picture of both the world we want to live in and the great leaps it will take to get there.
