In a recent interview with AgWeb, the president and CEO of Hackett Financial Advisors, Shawn Hackett, explains why he thinks our civilization will have to come up with new ways of growing food over the next 5 years.
"Things are happening that haven’t happened in a long time," said Hackett. "It’s just the beginning."
"We have data that goes back to the 1600s and 1800s from ice core samples, tree rings, and from actually written testimony of the kind of problems that they had,” said Hackett.
"We are not doomist and gloomist, that's not our modus operandi," he said. "But the world we are heading into is a world of food scarcity and local famines."
"It’s not going to be pleasant. It’s going to be a very difficult time. We’re going to have to come up with new ways of growing food in this more difficult environment."
