    you're a do-gooder, and do-gooders by definition live in fantasy land. Earth is not somethign you impose ideals on, it lays its laws on YOU.

    Perfect.
    This is a novel I would read! And yeah, they kind of overlooked the issues of animal overpopulation, which would put an additional strain on the ecosystem. What will happen to all of those tasty cattle if we don't eat them?

    Demographically this would be least efficient as whites are not a majority population and are definitely not a major producer of offspring.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    you realize that the situation is self correcting. Notice rates of "neolithic" disease.

    what is happening to Monsanto products will happen to humans.

    Pretty soon mother nature will expect to be paid and she will be paid well as famines and disease run rampant throughout the globe. her life blood will be returned and none of us have to do anything but watch and eat whatever your primal substitute for popcorn it.

    Well, way back when I learned that the use of energy in consumption is always roughly 9:1. So plants use 10% of sunlight they get to build new cells, herbivores use 10% of the plantmatter they eat, carnivores use 10% of the meat they eat.

    So yeah, eating meat means a higher waste of energy. Whether or not we can deal with that, who knows. Maybe growing steak in the factory is the future
