Too little there, too much here

Doing my daily review of news on the BBC and came across this story about disappearing islands in the Bay on Bengal, the interesting thing at the bottom links to a story of how population growth is outstripping food supply, complicated by a shift in the US to growing bio-fuels such as ethanol instead of producing food. So while we have too many overweight people in the UK and the US, people are starving elsewhere and the situation is set to get worse.

There are lots of complicated and expensive solutions because the simple and money-saving one of consuming less is passed by.
