I love this image from the new “crate-dump” documentary “Amplify” that shows just how much of the world’s produce is thrown out in the world’s biggest dumpsters. This is a good reminder to take a step back and really think about what you can throw away. I personally am not a huge fan of throwing away food, it’s just a part of life and something that I don’t really think about.
I used to be pretty big into throwing away food, but now I just think about how much waste goes into producing the stuff we consume. The world produces everything in excess, so once the food is gone, what is left? Waste. When the world produces so much that people are throwing it away, they are throwing away the next generation of foodstuff, as well as the next generation of people.
Amplify is a very interesting concept. The reason we use the word “amplify” is because it’s one of those things that seems to be related to the idea of creating surplus and waste. When we produce too much of something, we make it into surplus. The surplus of food is then used to feed the hungry, but waste is produced once more. We then need to create an algorithm to decide how much surplus to create based on the amount of waste created.
Amplify is really a great way to describe the process of creating surplus. It’s also a great way to describe the process of creating waste. For example, we spend a lot of time talking about the growing waste and surplus of plastic bags. But we also spend a lot of time talking about the growing waste and surplus of cotton. Once again, we have an algorithm, a process, that is used to decide how much of each of these things we need to make.
Like most people, I have a problem with the plastic bags. They’re gross, they’re not biodegradable, and they’re just a pain to make. What I hate most about plastic bags is that they’re almost never biodegradable, so you have to use them every week whether you want to or not. On the other hand, I’ve grown to love cotton and cotton bags.
There are two reasons why I love cotton bags. The first is that they are biodegradable, and that is one reason why I use them. The second is that cotton itself is one of the most amazing biodegradable fibers out there. Think about it. Its main uses in the world are actually not in the food industry, but in the textile industry. Cotton can be used for everything from textiles to building materials to biofuels.
Cotton is actually pretty good for a lot of things. It’s amazing for textiles, especially on the textile side. It’s also relatively inexpensive compared to other materials, so it makes sense that it would be used for textiles. Most people do cotton farming to some extent, so it makes sense that cotton farmers would use it for textiles too.
The problem is that we need to be able to buy cotton. Unfortunately, in the USA, its so expensive that many people choose to buy cotton from China and elsewhere. There’s a lot of controversy out there about how to regulate cotton farming, including the whole “tougher” and “quicker” or “slower” cotton farming. As a result, the European Union and the United States are currently fighting over the issue.
With all that said, the issue is one that’s being discussed at the UN, specifically a draft that calls for a blanket ban on the use of genetically modified seeds. According to the UN, the use of such biotech crops would be illegal under international law without the use of a national moratorium or a strong national law. It would be a ban that would apply to all countries, not just the United States and the EU.
This is important. This is exactly why the EU and the United States are actually arguing over the issues. Both countries are so divided over the issue that they are literally going to be at war. It is a situation that is becoming more and more serious, as evidenced by the fact that the two nations that are currently in the middle have already started sending representatives to the United Nations to try to work out some sort of compromise.
