Nature will correct it, once we suck her dry, no worries.

It's easy to say we know how to fix things, and what we as people 'should' do as a species to fix things....but to get all the world's countries on board, that is a little tougher.

The most important thing IMO in getting the population problem solved is continue to work on improved rights for and the status of women. When women have choices and equality and education, the world wins.
I completely agree with this too

Well, I DID post that 'organic is bogus' story from Cosmos, but everyone sort of glossed over it.

Since I am working in the country side I started buying almost all of my food at the surrounding farms. Yes- it's a LOT more expensive, but aside from the fact that it tastes better I also see it as setting a sign that I want this type of growing produce/ keeping animals to be a bigger segment in how food comes on our tables.

Of course the underlying problems- as has been already outlined in this thread into depth- are others. Overpopulation and overproduction, just to start with. Still- if I can set a little signal with what and where I buy, then I'll do it as long as I can afford it.

Plus- the other week I bought "normal food" and aside from the fact that it didn't taste as good my body did feel different in a way.

Not so sure overproduction is truly a problem....in fact, the world grain reserves are nil, for the first time in a long time. That is a pretty bad situation to be in.

There is definately overproduction of f.e. milk here in Europe. Just one example.

We waste a lot of space producing fresh vegetables, of which a staggering amount get thrown away. There's also a lot of waste in dairy. I'm sure there's links to back this up- but for now this is based on personal experience working in and with grocery stores. Right now we get several wheelbarrows full of produce from our local grocer every week to use as pig slop- and we're a small island. Lots more gets dumped (we only have this arrangement from one out of the 4 large(ish) stores on island).

Also, based on my experiences working on farms (both sustainable and monoculture/heavy spray)- there is a TON of produce that never makes it to market. If there is so much as a blemish- it's not considered salable.

FWIW- pigs are fairly picky eaters and they don't like rotten produce, either

edit: here's one link I could find quickly to an article in Scientific American
