If you made USA a crime free zone then problem solved, amirite? It works with gun free zones, iirc.

How would you solve world hunger? Insert a problem ITT and solve it.

Well, crime-free and gun-free zones deal with the overabundance of hazards to society. World hunger is more about the lack of something, so any type of something-free zone wouldn't apply, which effectively makes the original post a huge non-sequitur.

I would say we need to work on those secret projects from SMAC like The Weather Paradigm and start building terraformers.

incorrect. you could declare africa a hunger free zone and abolish world hunger.

voila.

LOOK GUYS LOOK I wasn't even the one to derail the thread into SMAC this time! See, it's not just me!

Also I agree.

we can also solve unemployment rate by hiring everybody to dig holes in the ground one day then fill them up the next.

voila i fixed the economy.

The thread title almost made me angry, until I saw who started it, at which point I thought, "This is either going to make me ridiculously angry or I'm going to chuckle before I check the next thread."

I'm glad you're back.

c'mon sarah.

"crime free zone" is just as useful as "gun free zones" to stop the use of crime or guns or poverty or hunger. you cannot mandate safety. Everything is tenuous, dependent on power to enforce what the powerful can enforce.

blah blah pg is talking ignore him.

Also, speaking of zones. Don't Kanye into his zone.

Loud farts are a problem. Therefore we need surgically implant a noise dampener/air-freshener into everyones asshole. Taking a shit might become harder as this will become your asshole. This will make the world a loud smelly fart free zone!

Solve world hunger?

Okay.

Distribute food stamps valued highly enough to pay for a healthy amount of varied food to every single person on Earth, regardless of income, country, or anything else. You can buy more food on top of that if you want, of course. Ban protectionist measures such as tariffs and local subsidies (global subsidies may be okay, but local ones are by definition protectionist and bad). Invest into genetics research to develop better crops of greater hardiness and nutritional value with higher yields. The last is not necessary in the short term, we have plenty of food for everyone today, but it'll be good preparation for the future.

Well aside from "Invest into genetics research to develop better crops of greater hardiness and nutritional value with higher yields." in that very post, from the huge mountains of food that go rotten because there are no buyers, or the stunning amounts of waste that occur throughout the food chain. We do not have a food shortage in the world today, we have a failure to distribute it. For the future 100% efficiency in food production and consumption would, with no other changes (such as to farming methods, amount farmed, what is farmed, and so forth), increase the amount of food we have available as a planet by around half. Just a few percent increase in efficiency is enough to provide food for a whole lot of people.

Other possible measures for the future;

As I mentioned, genetic modification
Meat is an impressively inefficient form of food, and converting meat production to grain or vegetable farms would increase the amount of food produced per acre by something like two hundredfold
More realistic use-by dates on less perishable goods. Things like fruit and dairy products have fairly tight use-by limits but a lot of food does not
Linked to the above, improve preservation technologies so that food lasts longer, which means we can both distribute it more widely with ease, and we can keep it longer when we have it rather than throwing something out because it's a day out of date
Educational campaigns that demonstrate how to make the most use of foods to reduce waste
Research possible new food sources such as vat-grown meat, aglae, and so forth
Control the rate of population growth (Through the only effective method, which is to educate and empower women)


So we're not really on the brink of mass starvation by any means, there are many options to help if we get to that point. But I really have to reiterate that it's a political problem, not a scientific one, that plagues the world today.
