Food and Famine in the 21st Century
The Great Chinese Famine (1959–1961) claimed more lives than any documented famine in history, with the numbers of lives lost estimated as high as 42 million. Could a similar event occur again? Possibly, but famines of the future will likely occur in mega-urban complexes comprising upwards of 15 million inhabitants in the tropical and subtropical nations of the world—yet food will be plentiful in the developed world outside of these regions.
