This video is a recording of a presentation of an article titled “Certified Organic Controlled Environment Hydroponic Systems and their Potential to Feed the World” at the College of Agriculture in the California Polytechnic State University Pomona. What I hope to achieve with this video is an explanation of how we can easily, efficiently and quickly achieve increased resiliency in our systems of food production. It is an invitation to the idea that our whole entire thought process will have to change if we want to continue the survival of our species. The consequences of this change would only be of the most positive of potentials, because it would allow us to feed 10 billion by 2050 with less space, water and artificially produced nutrients. Let’s not forget that California’s weather and nitrogen contamination from our agribusiness industries are also key issues, which are all addressed and solved through the use of controlled environment hydroponic systems. Hydroponics allows us to reach beyond the horizontal plane, it allows us to create vertical planes of plant production. It is the future of food technology. But how do we embrace it? Through grassroots movements and community empowerment, because that solves for the continuous education about the actual means and sources of our food. It is easily done when groups of marginalized minorities cooperate to accomplish once-thought-to-be impossible feats, as we have seen in previous centuries. This is the Movement with No Name as Hawken calls it, of more than 10 million in the US who want to retake control of their food supplies, empower economic improvement, solve climate change and return the Earth to a state of balance. For those who are creating ripple effects that foment change, I take off my hat and salute you like a fellow brother who is trying […]
