    Why our food needs to use less water

Interesting article with a couple short videos under PP’s Daily Digest..

https://www.bbc.com/future/bespoke/follow-the-food/why-our-food-needs-to-use-less-water/

Which then led me to this in-depth multi-media series. I haven’t read/watched any of it yet but looks like a lot of content PP tribe would be interested in. I personally bookmarked the page because it looks like some nice late night/early morning education. Has anyone watched or read any of the content?

“An in-depth multimedia series examining the biggest pressures on the world food system, from soil loss to malnutrition, and the solutions to help overcome them.”

I agree.

If the Grand Solar Minimum is for real, then there will be a huge pressure to use land more efficiently.

I believe that most open land farms will become greenhouses. Hydroponics and similar systems will become much more common.

Not that difficult.

Got daily water consumption down to 1 gallon per person, + 1 gallon for the kitchen.

 

Of course this involves “buy in” from household members

AND fun experiments like putting dishes on a tray, outside the door at night, so that animals can lick all the food off.
