  •  the bottleneck is energy (none)
    which you touched on with the 'you can't beat thermodynamics comment.'  Not lack of carbon.  Enough energy, and we can grow food from any carbon and oxygen, but energy is neither infinite nor neccessarily cheap.  

    We're going to have to disagree about nuclear.  IMO, its not ideal, but into something better is practical, its going to become increasingly (and exponentially) better than digging up the worlds last oil reserves, and fighting increasingly bloody wars to control them.

    •  Don't want to fight no dirty wars (none)
      or live in a world with rampant nuclear energy.  It is not the panacea you seem to think it is.  But I am sure if you keep living you will learn the truth of what I say. Think pro-survival, think fusion, think solar collectors in space, think downsizing absolute energy consumption, but nuclear would be giving up and sending us down another rabbit hole when we new creative thinking.

      A democracy that is fixed, is broken.
