In the year 2020, it is hard to imagine what life will be like. At the current rate we are going, our negative deficit will outweigh the positive. As far as technology goes, it is expanding at a constant rate so we will definitely have more access to technology in 9 years. I feel that in 2020, I will be on my own with my own family eating in my house. I feel like I will be eating some genetically modified, GMO ridden food that hasn’t been properly tested. I will stare at the food, and imagine what life was like 9 years ago when there was still access to agriculture, before globalization made farmers obsolete and where was still the option to buy fair trade, or buy organic foods. At the rate that our resources are being exploited, multinational corporations are expanding and globalization will eventually inevitable. Agriculture and principally Agribusiness is extremely harmful to our environment. The way in which traditional farmers produced our food has drastically changed to fit the new technological and global world. Meat production alone is evidently damaging to the environment. I bought this meal I’m eating from a local grocery store. The typical term “local” has been redefined to a larger department store with brand name foods rather than locally grown items. I am eating pasta, with eggplant and a salad. The lettuce in the salad is very tough, its off green and it looks very outdated. The majority of lettuce that will be available will be genetically modified iceburg lettuce. It is hard to imagine different meal with the way that things are progressing. Although locally organic foods are on the market more often, their expensive prices and the push of multinational corporations will eventually make organic, obsolete. This meal was prepared by me, and it tastes short of nothing. There is no pure taste, there are no natural spices and smells that make my senses tingle. It is just mediocre, and evidently, bad for my health. Food security and sustainability needs to become a high ranked social issues if we are to make sure this meal is not the only one on the table in 9 or 10 years.
