we need it as a fertilizer in agriculture but phosphate rock reserves are rapidly decreasing due to an ever growing world population. the bad news: while it's possible to replace energy resources like oil or gas there is no known big scale replacement for phosphate rock yet. in addition the quality of the remaining reserves is constantly declining.

are we heading towards a global hunger crisis with a death toll within the billions once we hit peak phosphorus in about 30 years?

Trust me, that's not true. I worked on a couple of treatment facilities doing structural details in AutoCAD, there's a lot of stuff going on but gold/poop separators are not part of that.
