Something For Desert?
According to economist and engineer, Indur Goklany, if the planet ever attempted to feed its 7 billion inhabitants via strictly organic farming methods, it would probably require that we then utilize over 80% of the earth's surface (we presently utilize less than 40%) STRICTLY FOR FARMING. And, yes, this would also mean that we would inevitably have to chop down a significant part of the rainforest and irrigate places such as the Sahara, Great Victorian, and Mojave Deserts and the Colorado Plateau. To say here that the greenies haven't thought this sucker through is an understatement.
