Scientists WARN: The food riots will begin in just one generation, and human civilization will collapse

Many of us feel that society will collapse eventually, but lots of people don’t think it will happen during their lifetime. Although no one wants to believe that we could one day face such a scenario, a scientific model suggests that it could be coming a lot sooner than we think.

A scientific model from a team at the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University shows how our current way of life is simply not sustainable and that there could be dramatic global repercussions for continuing down the same path. This is something that their calculations show will occur if society fails to react to the growing food crises by changing its behaviors and policies for the better.

The report stated: “Global demand for food is on the rise, driven by unprecedented growth in the world’s population and widespread shifts in consumption patterns as countries develop.”

The Institute’s director, Dr. Aled Jones, said that when they ran the model to the year 2040 using what he termed a “business as usual trajectory,” food riots would arise and society would collapse as food production fails to keep up with consumption.

He said: “The results show that based on plausible climate trends, and a total failure to change course, the global food supply system would face catastrophic losses, and an unprecedented epidemic of food riots.”

Previous projections show a similar path

It may be easy to dismiss the findings of one report, but it’s far from the only one to paint this disturbing picture. A recent Lloyd’s of London report shows that our global food system is under “chronic pressure” to keep up with the growing demand. Moreover, it is vulnerable to acute disruptions – a situation that is made even worse by factors like water stress, political instability, and globalization.
