So much so that it is jeopardizing our soils, our air and our water. But it's often the livestock producers, rather than the consumers, who unfairly bear the brunt of the blame.

Food and Agriculture Reorganisation

Posted Fri, 14 Oct 2011 12:27:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Nature has published a daring plan to double food production in order to feed the projected nine billion mouths we will have in 2050. By using only satellite images and crop records, the eminent researchers from Canada, the US, Sweden, and Germany have been able to predict less environmental impact with double production. With one billion chronically malnourished humans at the moment, perhaps we can make an immediate start.

The journal Science has given US states the green light literally. Where any native species is not under any special protection, there is an obligation for conservation. Because wildlife is not owned, all citizens and therefore the State concerned must act, according to the public trust doctrine.
