How To Feed A Warming World ? – Kevin McGeeney, CEO of SCB Group at TEDxLausanne
March 19, 2017
Climate change is already disrupting agriculture and creating food crises around the world. The past 16 years have been among the 17 hottest on record, which suggests even greater supply shocks and price spikes to come. Government responses are often unable to secure food supplies and prevent price swings. What can be done to provide a safety net for those most vulnerable?
Kevin, the co-founder and CEO of SCB, one of the world’s largest renewable -energy brokerage firms, proposes a radical solution to address emergency food shortages - and it doesn’t involve building more stockpiles. With offices in Switzerland and eight other locations including the USA, the UK and Singapore, Kevin is a well-known commentator on environmental market issues for CNBC television and the Wall Street Journal.
Join us on 21 April at TEDxLausanne 2017, Amphimax, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
