In 2000 and twelve

It's 2012. What does the earth look like? 
It's been 12 years since we all welcomed the year 2000. 
What has changed? 
  • There are seven BILLION people on the planet right now
  • One billion of those people are hungry everyday
  • 1/3 of the world's crops are used for livestock, biofuels and non food products
  • 40% of the Earth's land has been cleared for agriculture
  • Global meat consumption has increased by 20% in the past 10 years
We need to increase food production by 70% to feed the world's population. This is a scary fact.
