A University of Guelph professor is being featured by CNN. Evan Fraser, Department of Geography, wrote an opinion piece on the state of the world's food supply that was published by CNN World online.
In the article, Fraser looks at the cause and effects of rising food prices in the past several years and explores how food stocks can help maintain global food security and prevent political unrest.
Fraser joined U of G in fall 2010 as the Canada Research Chair in Global Human Security. He co-wrote the book Empires of Food: Feast, Famine and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations about how and why human culture depends on food, what happens when a culture runs out of it and our likely future. He has become a sought-after media expert and consultant on the global food crisis.
