    The majority of the agricultural land is used to feed farm animals.

    Correction harm done by the companies trying to keep their profit margins even if it means over production and disposal.

    Wow. We better get busy. It’ll take a long time to plow over that final 28%.

    Very interesting, the only problem is that, mostly, only those interested in the effects of Climate Change will watch or pay attention.

    Were going into somekind of global environmental catastrophic shutdown were asking for our own destruction in so what we called progressive ultra modern development is quite leading us into a wrong direction so sad

    So at last we see the real problem is too many people not CO2. Limit your family to one child only and take some personal responsibility.

    Hamzah Romaine if I understand correctly, you are claiming that due to profit based incentives, agricultural producers overproduce agricultural products, which ultimately go to waste. You don’t indicate at what stage of the cycle the waste occurs, what agricultural products are wasted, in what region(s) of the world this occurs. In short, you provide no information backing up your claim. There is nothing for me to attempt to disprove. Not a cop out, you simply haven’t backed up your own claim. I did find this article from 1961 informative: https://fee.org/articles/the-collapse-of-communist-economic-theory/

    Yet the same people are telling us that we need to breed more to sustain our societies. Unless you want to live in some kind of green dictatorship or scorched earth you need to address human overpopulation first. Also, if people in certain countries are encouraged to have 5+ kids per family whilst we in Europe are being told to drastically change our way of life, it will do a jack shit to improve the environment.

    I'm afraid there is no hope for us unless somehow magically we reduce without harming enyone half of the human population right now.
