    unfortunately we haven't gotten to the vat growing stage yet and there's no sign it's coming anytime soon in significant quantity. Most food is grown on farms and either consumed directly or used as feed for livestock. Many of those farmlands around the world aren't even fully mechanized, but depend instead on intensive hand cultivation. A much smaller portion comes from natural sources which again, are based ultimately on cyano bacteria and other plants. That's all powered by the sun, rain, and soil. It's all critically affected by climate: Change the climate, and all those precarious chains are affected.

      I'll give two sanwers to this -

      As someone who believes firmly that the Nazi/eugenics movement has simply morphed into the UN (many of the eugenics outfits sponsored by Rockefeller, Morgan, etc., simply turned into UN agencies) I do believe that there is a purposeful, Malthusian desire to pare down the population, using means including, but not limited to abortion, euthanasia, selective breeding, and gene manipulation.

      However, my point will be much more simple -

      If the combined intellect and resources of the global economy cannot save us from famine and stormy weather, than it doesn't WANT to save us. And there's precious little we can do about that.

      And if anyone believes that a political party that is behooven to corporate interests (pick yer poison) will do anything to change it, then you probably voted in the last election and helped to keep the murderous status quo. (I'm guilty, too.)

      For a revolution of decentralized government, based on the principles of Web 2.0.
