“Go Vertical or Die Out..”

The Vertical Farm – Dickson Despommier

Despommier founded the idea of the Vertical Farm, an answer to: No longer having enough land to feed the radically growing population; Balancing the Carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere to stabilise sea acidity and Significantly reducing water pollution in the world’s rivers and oceans by inventing a concept that used up to 90% less water than traditional farming.

His Book ‘The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century’ explains the problems we are/ will face around the world if we continue to abuse agriculture e.g shifting seasons, coral extinction and the desertification of essential land.

Despommier is the God Father of future farming and if this is something you are interested in his name will pop up a lot. To save yourself some time watch this video as he basically explains the condensed content of his book.
