larsole hetland, Oct. 4, 2013

Hello, my name is Lars Ole. I eat a lot of food, because I train a lot. I eat about 5-6 times a day. If I did not do that, I would not be able to train as much as I do. Therefore, food is very important to my training and me. When I eat all this food, I usually do not think about that many people around the world die of hunger. I can just go into the kitchen and take what I want, and other people have to hunt for their food, for maybe 2-3 hours. Sometimes they don’t even get to eat that day. So that is something to think about.

Hi People
Many people in the world are starving. Basically we have enough food to everybody in the world, but it’s still many people that starving. It’s important to do something with this problem. So what can we do, to help other people that have to little food? We rich have very much food and we throw away around 5 bags in the week and we throw away much food. We should be better buy the food we need and not much more, then we eat and then we throw it away.
So in my opinion, rich countries like Norway have to give more food to the poor. And a other way to get more food to the food is to give money. If everybody in Norway, and among rich in the world give little to organisations like reddbarna (a Norway organisations that help poor), then it can help many people.
In many ways, it’s very unfair that we rich have so much more of food and other things and people that are poor. So if people can throw away lesser food, then we can give more food to the poor and it will stop some of the poverty problem in the world.

Hi everybody! I live in the US and this Carbon Footprint Challenge made me more aware of my impact on our awesome world that we live in. Specifically, one of the best things ever: FOOD. Whether it is a juicy steak, a scrumptious hamburger, or some greasy bacon, meat is so desirable for most of us. It is also very difficult imagining a meal without meat… Although meats contain essential nutrients it is also very important to not consume so much. That is why I came up with a cool idea to plan a “Veggie Dinner” once a week or so with your family/friends. This can turn into a fun event, where there could be a competition on who cooks the most delicious Veggie Meal. Also, you can find endless recipes online for Vegetarian meals. Just an idea that some of you conscious consumers might want to consider :)
Happy eating!

    I hate the very thought of eating vegetables, I much prefer my fried chicken and steak. If I have to conform to being environmentally friendly in terms of food and wish not to compromise by eating more green vegetables, I would just stick to tofu as an alternative. I would love to have a “Tofu Dinner” with family and friends one day.
    Happy eating! #colts

After taking the Carbon Footprint Survey and seeing my own footprint in comparison to the people around me, I have found that my personal high, or the one aspect that is especially higher than others, is my meat consumption. Now thinking about it briefly, it does not seem like eating a lot of meat makes that much of a difference against categories such as air travel and electricity use, but after some research, it is quite the contrary. Michelle Maisto reports on this topic, and one paragraph stands out in particular:
“A widely cited 2006 report estimated that 18% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions were attributable to cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats, camels, pigs and poultry. However, analysis performed by Goodland, with co-writer Jeff Anhang, an environmental specialist at the World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation, found that figure to now more accurately be 51%.”
This leads me to contemplate our nation’s (USA) obsession with meat and animal products. I wonder, if a policy were put in place to limit, or at least put regulations on the treatment of animal care, how much could our carbon footprint be reduced?
That brings me to a different topic regarding world hunger. I am not well versed in world policy, but if money were to be relocated toward grain production, instead of livestock, could that potentially help to make a dent in the world hunger crisis?

Good evening :)
I think it’s shame of humanity that in 21st century every 5 seconds one human being dies from hunger. In world are so much people which are wasting and trowing food when at the same time, for example, children in Africa don’t have water and any food. In my opinion reason for world hunger is that some parts of the world are undeveloped. We certainly need to change something. People can send money for their food, for building homes to stop diseases.
However, some people don’t care for that and that is something which we need to change, people need to know in what conditions people are living.
World hunger is the problem which we need to solve.
Here is link for organisation Mary’s Meals where you can donate money online and 10$ would be enough for one child education in whole year.

The culture of organic food is to be carried out because it is very beneficial to human life even if the costs are quite high. There should be agricultural policies that prevent the use of certain pesticides and harmful treatments to humans not only to animals.

    Although organic food is expensive sometimes, I think the price is worth it to live healthy and well!

hello! My name is Eleanora, i’ve 17 years old and I live in the north of Italy. World hunger is a serious problem, many people in the past have moved to solve it but the success rate was very low because people do not have the food to be able to survive are many. The difference between one and the other part of the world is really great because in underdeveloped countries or continents, the percentage of daily food is very low while in developed countries such as Europe and the food is really this cause, in some cases, even the problem of excess food, thus obesity.

The problem of food is very common in underdeveloped countries with small but especially in developed countries the problem is the amount of food that is thrown away, but also the quality of food is important. In my country, the quality of food is great because everyone grows fruit and vegetables without treatment. I grow fruit and vegetables without treatments and genuine mainly because the products are not imported and do not make me thousands of kilometers.For the quality of food is important at times we are not aware of eating and shoddy products by paying a high price.

Discussions Discussion Space Travel
Katarina E, May 12, 2013

Hello everybody :)
Space was always fascinated me but I don’t agree wholly with idea of space travel. With milions of people which don’t have water or food for surviving I think it’s absured to send commercial flights in space . With money that world spend on racets, satellits I think that half of that money will save hungry people in Africa and all around the world. Of course that we should explore space around us like we was on Moon in 1969th but it’s not necessary to look for life on Mars or on every other planet if we have our beautiful planet Earth. Greetings to all ;)

    I agree with John,
    that's it the true idea, to defend what we have now: The Earth Planet, our home.
    However, I believe that investing in space travel development would pay off just in case our “efforts” (rather scarce, I must say) in saving our planet will not work.
    In my case I'm firmly convinced that every euro/dollar spent in space return to us quadrupled.
  • Nick Cerdan Nick Cerdan Oct. 19, 2013
    I agree to a certain extent. I believe that we should definitely use that money somewhere closer to home. To feed starving people for example. But also I like the subject of exploring new areas and space has always been a fascinating subject to me. Another thing I thought of was why not focus on our deep oceans? There is a statistic that somewhere around 98% of our ocean isn't explored yet. So why focus on somewhere away form earth when really there is a whole universe of life that we haven't explored.
  • Mary M Mary M Feb. 24, 2014
    I agree that it is important to take care of our planet before seeking to inhabit and take care of other planets, but I see space travel as a very important aspect of human expansion. The rate at which Earth’s population is growing is beyond anything ever before seen. No one can deny that one day, this world will basically be destroyed due to lack of space for people to live. Nature will no exist due to the needs of humans and the atmosphere will become polluted by waste. This is where the importance of space travel comes in. There are trillions of space bodies in the universe and based on mathematical probabilities and locations to suns and stars, there must be more planets out there that are capable of human habitation. There are probably planets out there that actually even have life and humanlike creatures. If we are going to keep populating the world as we are, it is our responsibility to find outlets when Earth becomes too small for us.

Hello everyone.My name is Iva and I am from Croatia.I have always wondered why is there so much hunger in the world.I found out that in the world there are 870 million hungry people.I was shocked.One out of every eight people is going hungry and one in three children is underweight.It is so sad.We need to do something about it.Every year,out English teacher and pupils bake muffins to collect money.It is a good idea and you should do it.I decided to help people who are in need so almost every day I go shopping and buy food for them.I hope that I will be able to do something more for hungry people in the future.

    You are right, I completely agree with you! That's a big problem but so many people don't want to do anything. We should help more and tell people about it! I hope more people will notice that and try help.
