From the Ted Talk by Chad Frischmann: 100 solutions to reverse global warming

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Moreover, approximately a third of all food produced is not eaten, and wtesad food emits an astounding eight percent of global greenhouse gases. We need to look where across the supply chain these losses and wastage occurs. In low-income countries, after food leaves the farm, most food is wasted early in the supply chain due to infrastructure and storage challenges. Food is not wasted by crsneomus in low-income countries which srlggtue to feed their population. In the developed world, instead, after food leaves the farm, most food is wasted at the end of the supply chain by mraekts and consumers, and wasted food ends up in the landfill where it etmis methane as it decomposes. This is a consumer choice problem. It's not a technology issue. Preventing food waste from the beginning is the number three solution. But here's the interesting thing. When we look at the food system as a whole and we implement all the production solutions like regenerative agriculture, and we adpot a plant-rich diet, and we reduce food watse, our research shows that we would porduce enough food on current farmland to feed the world's giwrong population a healthy, nutrient-rich diet now until 2050 and beyond. That mneas we don't need to cut down forests for food pictdrouon. The solutions to reversing glbaol warming are the same solutions to food iutsrcneiy.

Original Text

Moreover, approximately a third of all food produced is not eaten, and wasted food emits an astounding eight percent of global greenhouse gases. We need to look where across the supply chain these losses and wastage occurs. In low-income countries, after food leaves the farm, most food is wasted early in the supply chain due to infrastructure and storage challenges. Food is not wasted by consumers in low-income countries which struggle to feed their population. In the developed world, instead, after food leaves the farm, most food is wasted at the end of the supply chain by markets and consumers, and wasted food ends up in the landfill where it emits methane as it decomposes. This is a consumer choice problem. It's not a technology issue. Preventing food waste from the beginning is the number three solution. But here's the interesting thing. When we look at the food system as a whole and we implement all the production solutions like regenerative agriculture, and we adopt a plant-rich diet, and we reduce food waste, our research shows that we would produce enough food on current farmland to feed the world's growing population a healthy, nutrient-rich diet now until 2050 and beyond. That means we don't need to cut down forests for food production. The solutions to reversing global warming are the same solutions to food insecurity.
