    That will be the time when your grand grand grand grand kids will write on forums saying that nations used to fight over fight, now we fight over water.

    according to them it's not that far off. especially food.

    something to do that with the non adoption of GM food, we'll be facing crisis point in about a decade or two, if the population trend remains the same.

    it was spoken over a couple of beers though so my memory of it is quite hazy.

    What GM food?

    When we have nothing to eat, we dont care whether it is GM or non-GM.

    No offence!

    the world for now has a violent apprehension towards adopting GM food.

    if the trend continues, the world's current output of food will not be able to support the population in a few decades time. this is taking into account the fact that world food supply remains constant (which WILL NOT owing to natural cycles of weather patterns, natural disasters, etc), and if the world' population grows in a stable manner (which also WILL NOT be the case if you factor in the population of third world countries).

    it is because of this violent apprehension towards the adoption of such food, that analyst (aka people like my friend who actually did his PhD on it) reckon that a war/wars will break out within the next few decades with regards to food, owing to this and a few other facts which I have not bothered remembering (since this isn't my field or specialty anyway).

    hypothetically the adoption of GM food and some of its strains (fast growing food, drought resistant food, low water requirement, etc) may... repeat... MAY ease this problem and possibly avert potential disaster down the road.

    You are right

    GM food may genetically alter the human being(yet to be proven) but one must be pragmatic. To have a shorter live or nothing at all.

    No war make peace!... until one day when the earth is crowded.

    We then face another problem. By then war maybe necessary!

    are you willing to donate your money to create water recycling plants in undeveloped countries, where potential conflicts over such resources will probably break out (as they already are with food at times)?

    Money was given to them but most goes to the ??????
