Starting in 1975 Tussey became the Deputy US Coordinator, World Food Conference, Department of State.SUMMARY Tussey listed the World Food Conference concerns, both the problems and the resolutions offering responses. The conference this time is trying to reach 25 years ahead instead of the typical 10. One of his goals is to mute the more dire Malthusian forecasts by showing how humans now stay ahead of population growth and the many means available to continue to do so - provided sufficient political will and decision making.
