Climate change will have — actually, it already is having — a big impact on the food systems that have grown to be able to keep 8 billion people alive on Earth. It’s more fragile than you think, because climatic systems will have a big impact on intensive agriculture in both developed and developing nations. It’s hard to imagine what our future system will look like.
Today, I supported a Kickstarter project that puts a unique spin on that imagination. Dinner in our Future Climate models drought-filled and flooded scenarios, both of which are expected to become more common, to imagine what our diets might look like. It will come to life in the form of recipes — and a photo essay.
