Throughout the course of history, mankind has been rather adept at worrying about the end of the world. We’ve made hundreds, if not thousands of predictions regarding the apocalypse – sometimes conjuring the possibility of some grand cataclysm, other times playing the blame squarely on ourselves.
Now, as World War III appears to be fomenting in Eastern Europe, and with the climate change alarmists continuing to sound their alarms, a new fear is creeping into the conversation: Mass starvation.
THE world will run out of food in 27 years, scientists have warned.
They have launched a doomsday countdown and say we have exactly 27 years and 251 days left as of Sunday ( April 24).
Sociobiologist Edward Wilson explained we would need two planet Earths to feed the current need, adding: “There are limits to Earth’s capacity to feed humanity.
And there may be nothing that we can do to stop it.
“Even if everyone on the planet agreed to become vegetarian, the world’s farmland could not support the need. The world population will be too big to feed itself.
“By then, there will be almost 10billion people on the planet and the food demand will have increased by 70% compared to what we needed in 2017.
In order to produce enough food for all of mankind, we would need to create as much in the next 40 years as we have in the last 8,000 years, which is an extremely tall order.
