    Wow, a full blown dummy spit, nice.

    I was referring to your apparent attitude of 'oh, look, the world grows more than enough food to feed the population of the world'' as I've already mentioned.
    That's not an attitude, that is a fact. At the moment. An argument can be made that this might not always be so, but if you (or your sources) want to make that argument, is it asking too much to do so without pretending we live in an alternate reality where that fact doesn't hold?


    In other words the impression I get from your objection to what I am saying being, to paraphrase: ''she'll be right, plenty of food, no crisis, no need to worry''
    Oh, there is reason to worry. That doesn't make insincere attempts to drive home the potential problems of the future by pretending we have a problem now already anything but - insincere.

    You gotta help me there, I've been living in Europe for over a third of a century and I don't know what it is that "don't bode well" for a future in which we maintain and expand our technology in the face of dropping birthrates. As far as I can tell, Japan and most of Europe have better trains and faster internet connections than you guys. More solidly built houses and cars too, though often smaller ones...
