WTH do you have to to tie my water usage to my freaking garbage bill ?? When I water my grass or garden, how much solid waste does that produce ? NONE. Have a pay-per-throw program and make those who who generate the most trash pay for it. Is that too simple for everyone ?

Hopefully there will never be enough of you people that would just throw everything in a landfill and keep on consuming, to have your way. Responsible citizens recycle on their own and would even pay to do it. The rest of you need a little coaching, prodding, and even public criticism, when you fail to see the value and social responsibility of recycling.

IFT launches FutureFood 2050 to highlight solutions to feed 9 Billion

Explains how science will deliver solutions needed to feed the world's people

From Illinois Ag Connection:

he world's largest scientific society of individual food scientists and technologists unveiled a sweeping new program today, FutureFood 2050, to create a broad dialogue on how science will deliver solutions needed to feed the world's nine billion people by the year 2050.

FutureFood 2050 is backed by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) whose 18,000 members are scientists, researchers, technologists and food professionals from 100 countries working in academia, industry and government. With the premise that the science of food is an essential ingredient for feeding the world sustainably, FutureFood 2050 will highlight the people and stories leading the way toward a healthier, safer and better nourished planet.

IFT has always been focused on publishing valuable content for its members, food professionals and the media, including Food Technology magazine, IFT Expert Reports, IFT Scientific Status Summaries, Journal of Food Science, Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety and the Journal of Food Science Education. With the launch of FutureFood 2050, IFT has expanded its publishing mission to reach a broader audience through its interview series and upcoming documentary film. Under the direction of an independent editorial team, FutureFood 2050 will come to life over the coming months with 75 interviews featuring independent-minded thought leaders around the globe. At the same time, a documentary will be completed looking at how the science of food will contribute solutions to feeding the world. The documentary will provide the public with a closer, more intimate look at the science, stories and personalities addressing this challenge.

"Many films have focused on food issues, but they often neglect or misinterpret the role of science, sometimes relying on personal beliefs more than facts," says Scott Hamilton Kennedy, the Academy Award-nominated film director overseeing the FutureFood 2050 documentary, scheduled for release in mid to late 2015. "By looking at this challenge through the unbiased lens of science, our goal is to address critical questions surrounding food in a fair, transparent manner that will hopefully surprise, and maybe even transform us along the way."

From now until the film's 2015 release, the FutureFood 2050 interview series will look more broadly at the ways that science is tackling the world's most pressing food issues. A new website at www.FutureFood2050.com will serve as a digital hub for the public to follow the stories and connect science to the conversation about how to feed the planet. An international team of editors and journalists, including award-winning author of The Taste of Tomorrow: Dispatches from the Future of Food, Josh Schonwald, will uncover the stories that shape the interview series.

"Feeding nine billion people by 2050 simply can't happen without science and technology playing a leading role," Schonwald said. "This project will showcase leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs and activists who are shaping the future of food from a wide variety of perspectives -- some high tech, some not. And along the way, we hope to foster a better dialogue about the options surrounding some of the world's most complex, highly-charged issues."

The FutureFood 2050 interview series will tackle topics across the food spectrum including global hunger, sustainability, health and nutrition and food safety. Since complex issues like feeding nine billion people by 2050 aren't just about food, the interview series will also explore issues related to climate change, sustainability, politics, economic factors and more. Scientists--along with cultural influencers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, chefs, journalists and more--will be featured.
