Top 10 TED Talks - 2 - Eating an Entire Earth

Next on my "no particular order" list of Top 10 TED Talks, Jonathan Foley describes how much land we use for food productions and shows us that we are practically eating an entire earth already.  Foley does an excellent job of describing how agriculture impacts the Earth while keeping in perspective that it is a necessary part of human existence.

I like how Foley focuses in at the end on the solutions that are needed without loosing site of the scale and scope of the problems.  As he says in the talk, Agriculture has been the most powerful force for change in the world since the last ice age, and rivals climate change in importance.

Bon Appetit!
