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.

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 :)
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.
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.
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 ;)
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.
