Now On Youtube: Video Recording of Our Latest IF Forum.

On Tuesday, November, 13th, starting at 6 p.m., we welcomed Wilfried Bommert of the WDR at our Unterhaching InterFace Building. He was the third and last speaker in our series “Living (and Surviving) in a Sustainable Way”:

Making Good on Arable Soil!
How we can avoid the crisis of deeding the world.

Here it is – the recording of Herrn Bommert’s presentation!

    Yes, the talk was very good. It started with a clear explanation of the disaster that is coming within decades. The end was optimistic only for developed nations. It concentrated on means to delay the disaster by a few years. I see this as optimistic, since the politicians and the bulk of the population are largely ignoring the problems. The end also hinted strongly that Europe will need to make itself a fortress against much of the rest of the world, but did not go into the horror of such a situation.
    It is ironic that Roland mentions “Wienern und Leberkäs” after the talk, since even Europe will have to greatly reduce meat consumption. Perhaps Metzger Schlammerl sponsors these events? (I must admit that I enjoyed a Leberkäs-Semmel).
    Herr Bommert may also have been slightly embarrassed to be “paid” in coffee. Germans drink huge amounts of coffee that comes from land that could be used to produce food.

    The last copy of New Scientist explains that the climate change has accelerated drastically in the last 5 years. It now looks like being worse than the “worst case” predicted 10 years ago. CO2 production is still increasing. Germany, with a better record than most, is closing down nuclear power stations and subsidising coal!
