World hunger hits one billion

Posted by steve on August 24, 2009

A recent report in the BBC, one that I missed during my summer holiday, states that world hunger has reached a level never before experienced in the history of humanity.

That one billion, or nearly one sixth of the world are starving should make anyone stop and think, and wonder why, when so many areas of the world are prosporous, are so many without food?

The need for change is pressing. This humanitarian crisis could spread as the failure of the system we call Business as Usual gains momentum. And it could affect the developed world where already 15 million are thought to be starving.
