Jim, I might be way off base here but last I checked, provisions to feed
the world are not the problem, food distribution and politics are. We
have the land space to feed the world only most of it goes toward
feeding cattle, a serious mismanagement of said land use. Without the
cattle (used for meat and milk) we could use the grains to feed billions
and ALL without a genetic engineering need.
As yet, I await a rational arguement that defines the reasons for
harvesting grains and taxing our water supply (not to mention excess
methane and runoff from animal waste) all for the purpose of feeding
animals for slaughter.
Fish farming in the aquaponic sense seems a much saner route. Anything
that is a fairly closed loop works for me.
While I choose to generally avoid animal products/derivitives I do
understand that the world needs to eat AND that not all folks feel as I
When you ask me to believe that we must "plow under the world" I sense
that we either have a population explosion in which case I state that we
must be prepared to die like all other species on the planet, or modify
our reproduction mechanisms or at least temper our diet.
I find the latter the easiest though birth control is also possible
short of pissing off some religious beliefs.
I respect and expect the opinions of those who can convince me
