In the next 30 years, global population is estimated to surpass 9 billion people. Will there be too many people, and too little food? How will climate, politics, and economics impact food systems and food security on our growing planet?
Join NBC News Chief Science and Health Correspondent Robert Bazell as he moderates an exciting round-table with activist and best-selling author Raj Patel (Stuffed and Starved, Food Rebellions, and The Value of Nothing), geneticist Molly Jahn (former USDA Deputy Under Secretary and University of Madison-Wisconsin professor), and award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson (owner of Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem, author, and UNICEF Ambassador) to dispel myths about population growth and food security, highlight the breakthroughs and perils of cutting-edge technologies, and share promising local and global solutions.
This program is presented in conjunction with Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, the latest special exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History.
The exclusive corporate sponsor for Our Global Kitchen is J.P. Morgan.
