Default can science feed the world?



Forty years from now there will be 2 billion more of us to feed. Today, a billion go hungry. In the hunt for sustainable solutions, science plays a central role. This week’s Nature News special explores how agricultural research is rising to the challenge of balancing productivity with shrinking resources. How to feed a hungry world looks at ways of boosting yields while keeping land use in check.

Science always deals with facts. The work of scientist is to research and know about facts. Therefore nature and science go hand in hand which helps the feed the hungry world. Are you interested in learning more in science? then you can get help from private tutors.

Feeding the world is more a problem of the government than of science. That's the result of the capitalism.

Besides, the best way to avoid the increase of hunger in the world is to avoid increasing the human population. That should start within the family structure, that is to avoid having more children than the ones you can sustain.
