The power of human ingenuity is boundless. I live in New Mexico, one of the most technologically advanced areas in the world, home to the world’s most premiere weapons research facilities and the birth place of the atom bomb. The people that live and work here are among the brightest in the world, but it amazes me to no limits to see how much effort and will power goes into creating havoc and destruction. Imagine if all this ingenuity and power could be focused on issues like eradicating world hunger or independence from fossil fuels. The level of technology and human achievement we have amassed is just mind boggling yet you walk down the street and you find a single mother with 4 little kids sleeping in a car.
Can we change the world?
Maybe . . . Maybe not.
We will never know if we never try, so my question to you is what solutions can you come up with to end world hunger? If you have ideas for other drastic global/social issues please post them too.
I have my own theories on how I would approach the world hunger issue, but I would like to hear yours first.
This is one of the few reasons I am thinking of switching from the MD program to the MD/PHD program.
