Except it's not. What was the population twenty years ago and what were the rates of starvation then. Oh, everything is better than it was? Shut up then.

Maybe if they didn't breed like rabbits there would be more food for everybody?!

"Former Irish President Mary Robinson said the figures showed that the 2030 global development goals agreed in 2015 and the Paris climate agreement could no longer be seen as voluntary. Both must be fully implemented “in order to secure a livable world for our children and grandchildren”, she said in a foreword to the report." Fear and children again. Did someone find the data source from the articles?

Didn't some country in africa kick out their farmers, and mock them by saying "we can go to the local grocery store for food" or something? I'm sure that isnt the majority of the problem but it doesnt help especially if you dont have any counties from that continent pushing out an edible source of exports to their neighbors. I think they need to be taught to farm. Feed a man a fish kind of thing.

I remember seeing commercial on TV back in the 70's to feed the poor and starving in Africa even while the climate alarmist were certain Earth was heading into another ice age. So I'm going to go out a limb and say these location in the world just really suck to live in and nothing has changed for them in the past couple hundred years.

Pretty sure it's not "climate change" driving this - it's a distribution problem from Authoritarian governments. There's so much excess food produced we turn it into craft beer, craft whiskey, craft vodka, craft alcohols of all kinds. We also turn it into craft pet foods for all sorts of animals and pets. We really never hear about famines or starvation anymore.

I dunno, maybe some of these African countries should stop killing the white farmers who were growing all their foods. Just a thought.

Overall starvation and extreme poverty have been declining at miraculous rates this century. I can't help but wonder if this is a minor fluctuation being exaggerated for narrative convenience. I'm open to being wrong, as this is merely conjecture, but I never hear utopianists admit that it wasn't internationalism or central control that have resulted in relative prosperity for so many, but was the inevitable result of the spread of free markets, individual rights, and US guarantee of maritime security.

First of all. Over 500 climate scientists agree there is no "climate crisis". Secondly this is not a problem that is caused by or can be "fixed" by humans either. What we need to do "if" the global temperatures are rising significantly (they aren't, they have risen .2° c in 200+ years) we should be finding ways to cope since it is not on a scale humans as a species can or should manipulate. We contribute under 2% of co2 emissions each year and co2 is no where near the 75% of greenhouse gases that water vapor accounts for. Our impact globally is immeasurably insignificant. To think humans "need" to do something now! because we can save the planet is extremely ignorant of the scientific data on the subject.

(EDIT: this was meant to be a response to someone else's comment, this was reposted as a reply) Warming does not specifically mean better food growth. Warming an environment full of plants can have varying effects on different plants, it depends on the plants involved. Also some weeds, agricultural pests, parasites, etc. may really love warming more than major agricultural crops. Plants are by far from monolithic.

No. There is no warming. Warming means better food growth. Always has. What is driving hunger and starvation is population booms. Absolutely false climate hysteria propaganda.

there are too many people in those locations. the reality is that food should never be imported. of you can't grow enough food locally you need population controls. among a million other reasons to reduce human population.
