World Energy, Water and Food

Lynn R. Wallis, Retired Director of Public Affairs and Media Relations, GE Energy

If the crisis resulting from energy and water shortages continues, the world faces an ugly process of de-development, says Wallis. Providing the food necessary to supply the growing world population will require significantly more energy and water to improve food yields from the available arable land. For example, it requires the energy equivalent of one half glass of diesel fuel to produce a glass of milk. Adequate energy supplies are key to the future well-being of the planet. Wallis will explain what can, and must, be done.
