food bub·ble


food bub·ble (noun): The inflation of food production based on the unsustainable use of water and land.

Lester Brown, president of the Earth Policy Institute, explained the term food bubble in an interview with New Scientist:

That's when food production is inflated through the unsustainable use of water and land. It's the water bubble we need to worry about now. The World Bank says that 15 per cent of Indians (175 million people) are fed by grain produced through overpumping - when water is pumped out of aquifers faster than they can be replenished. In China, the figure could be 130 million.

Frederick Kaufman also used food bubble, but to describe inflation in food prices, in a July 2010 article in Harper's titled "The food bubble: How Wall Street starved millions and got away with it."



The problem here in general is a water shortage crisis. The lack of water that we can use is not replenishing as fast as we are using it. In the case in India where all those people live, if the water eventually gets all used up, they are going to have to find a new way to get their water to survive. With all the people trying to get water it could get very bad for those people.


I agree with Sam. There is a water crisis happening in this world even though we as Americans don't feel it. The Ganges River in India is considered one of the most polluted rivers in the world. Combine that with the fact that India is the second largest populated country in the world, means trouble in the matter of water.
I looked up facts about the water crisis and found this one: In China, India, and Indonesia, twice as many people are dying from diarrheal diseases as from HIV/AIDS. This fact may be distasteful but it explains the problem with water: we (meaning everyone on planet Earth) need to start using it better.


I agree with the previous two comments, and yes there is a definite water shortage in the world. It is much more noticeable in other countries, but the United States will face a problem with water shortages (and I don't think it will be as far off in the future as many believe). What is often forgotten is the fact that water doesn't belong to one group of people. In the United States, for example, we are depleting rivers that run from the western part of our country down to Mexico. By the time these rivers get to Mexico there is not much water left. We are using these rivers for agricultural purposes and than polluting them once they are downstream of our needs. After all this chaos we send the whole mess to another country and let them deal with it. I wish I knew the answer to this water crisis, but I do know that the lakes and rivers should not be used frivolously and we must find a more effective way to conduct our farming practices.


I agree with the last 3 comments, a water crisis is in the process and it's on the verge of becoming as extremem as the Oil Crisis of 1973. For now American's are fighting for Oil in the Middle East. Come 202 I wouldn't be surprised if we would be fighting the Canadians or the Mexican's for Water. The 90s generation of kids have experienced shortage at the pump, we are living to currently see a Revolution in Egypt, we've bought into the world of technological advancement, & before we die we probally would have lived through a water crisis. While we were kids, they didn't tell us to save water for the fishes for nothing! There was a meaning behind this childhood parable.


The fact that there is a water crisis in that is arising is a scary thought as it is. It just seems like water is the most abundant and replenish-able product that there is and the fact that even that is having trouble makes me think about how the whole food world is probably in trouble. I think everyone needs to step back and think about how all this over production and over doing will effect people in the future. We need to protect crises from happening to the generations after us because we don't want to say "shoulda, coulda, woulda" when it is too late.
