    Newton's third law is applicable to all the matters. Either we or the coming generations will have to suffer. It is a must. But we have to hope on science. Science will find a solution.

    Based on what Chandraeskaran says, that incrementalism will not solve the impending global food crisis and Climate Change I'm hoping someone at Friends of the Earth will answer for this article: https://medium.com/@foe_us/now-is-not-the-time-to-go-green-party-67191b72545#.oszu8z6vl – it is bullshit.

    I have to say it is hugely important to know that we already produce 70% of the worlds food with local farming. I certainly feed more than my family with what grows in my garden most years.

    We seriously need tank-meat. That way we won't need more livestock for slaughter…just healthy livestock for cloning samples. Give them good food, a nice environment to run around in…then take the occasional tissue sample to be cloned in the lab. Those animals will have the best life possible…and can die from old age, like they should.

    Do this along-side indoor vertical farming, and you're set.

    Hey lady this paragraph is total BS; "Kirtana Chandraeskaran of Friends of the Earth International explains why the UN Conference on World Food Security stopped short of recognizing that the industrial food sector is the greatest agricultural contributor to climate change", they stopped short because climate change has been proven to be non human advanced. Our Sun has more to do with climate change than anything done on this planet including the BS being promulgated by the likes of that idiot Al Gore. AND BY THE WAY, it is now being discussed that we may actually be heading into a mini Ice age.

    Cow farts/methane is another BS term being used to try and scare people into believing that the high price of beef is being caused because heard size cannot be maintained because drought is causing grain shortages. Just more BS. Economics is what is causing the high price of beef because our GD inflation is devaluing the purchasing power of our dollar.

    Maybe RealNews should try reporting something that is a little akin to real news instead of that liberal manufactured BS you constantly promulgate. I've been a rancher and farmer when I was a young man, so you can't BS me about what is actually going on !!!

    How dare you do a 15+ minute interview about such a HUGE topic, and not mention VEGANISM one time! Shame on you! I'll never donate to The "Real" News again. What a waste! Veganism is the FASTEST way out of this, and nobody has to pass any laws to participate.

    1/3rd of the human population dies each year from hunger. There's too much demand and obviously too little supply. How do you lower the demand? This is the question.

    let's face it the problem is the meat and dairy industry, it's simply not sustainable, plus unethical and unhealthy

    No mention of the meat industry´s impact?

    The idea of scarcity is evil! There is plenty water, food and shelter for all but sick people want to be in power and rich. Depopulation isn't about lack of anything, it's about a shift in power. If the general population was that big they could easily overpower government forces. Just think about it, what business wouldn't want more customers?

    Good thing there are tasty vegan alternatives to basically everything now 🙂

    depopulation is the answer , supply and demand

    If the pigs feed on or feed like pigs than the pigs will die like pigs . Within the hopes this helps.(8)
