The way we feed ourselves consumes 1/5 of fossil fuels, and produces 1/3 of greenhouse gasses.

Does that 1/5 of fossil fuels include what my idling air-conditioned 8 cylinder SUV burns while I wait for my Timmies ?

When you throw those numbers at the fact that the US with only 5 % of the worlds population and consumes 25% of it's resourses ... it should get interesting when the the rise of the middle class in China gets really going.

The next 3-5 generations should be really interesting.

aaaaaah .... Mother Nature will take care of herself when she rids herself of that awful plague she has ... namely, Homo Sapiens.
