In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at the problem of food waste. Specifically, I look at how food waste both in America and across the world is a massive problem for climate change, the environment, and hunger. By addressing food waste in farms, grocery stores, and at home, we could potentially feed billions of people and curb the massive emissions generated to make food and from food waste that ends up in the landfill. There are some pretty simple fixes to food waste like creating a shopping list, using guides to figure out when your food actually spoils, or creating a compost area and then composting food scraps. As a Vox video on the topic puts it, food waste is the world’s dumbest problem. But if we address food waste head-on, we will be well on our way to solving climate change and mitigating world hunger.
