    This is only one way to increase food production, it's not the be all, end all. Besides, as unfortunate as they are, shortages of food will probably set a limit on how many kids people can have… but that's just my opinion.

    It's that modern educational system doesn't teach to be self reliant. They put their ideas into people's minds, teach to work for them and buy stuff from them. It's a closed loop like in permaculture. Fortunately unsustainable and soon to end.

    Lol running out of food? The US government pays their farmers to BURN a lot of their crops because they produce TOO MUCH.

    I think what he meant was anyone who bothered to do the some research online could find these solutions.

    And can you please not refer to the place this area is in as "some poor arab country?" It's such a stereotyped and ignorant thing to say.

    Forgive me if I'm missing the larger picture, but in the US they actually have too much food, and they pay their farmers to throw out some of what they produce. I doubt any food shortage would occur from a lack of land for that food to grow on.

    Well, the idea is that if you put something in quotations, that means it's borrowed speech. Hence, I don't hold the view that we are running out of food. And yes, the US does produce a surplus of (crappy) food, but that what you seem to be implying (forgive me if I'm wrong) is that they should ship it over to places where people are going hungry. Ok-ish solution for short term, terrible for the long-term.

    I think of this as an experiment and it would be useful for reclaiming land we have lost to over farming and bad practices.

    I would hate to see it as a way to convert desert to support the ever increasing population. We have deserts for a reason and to wipe out even one part of the environment to support this plague we are inflicting on the earth is just too selfish to contemplate.

    It is time we took some serious steps to stop the increase in population and to start living within our means.

    Here is another alternative approach to greening arid landscapes: Search "Allan Savory: How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change" on youtube and watch.

    Its not that the sheep are grazing, it is how they are grazing. Forests and grazers can co-exist if approached in a holistic manner.

    This is more evidence that simple is better… simple is always the answer in most cases. There is a great amount of technology and projects about to be released which can transform the earth and people…

    And most of the food we do produce is either consumed in meat production or by the wealthier nations (or more accurately, the 1% within the 1%).

    People who think that humanity is a plague and think there is not enough food that can possibly be grown, are whack-jobs, city environmentalists that spout things about permaculture and sustainable this and that, when they never even have planted a potatoe or harvested an ear of corn.

    wtf,,,   religion is created by priests separating us from one another brother and sister..  being electric selves with great knowing, that, there is no "God" in the clouds..  we must wake up people of the world, kill churches like they killed many men in their "crusades" to enslave the people to religions to collect "donations" and own many lands tax free manipulating the Governments of the world, church and State are  together CORPORATIONS, names spelled in all capital letters are, Governments being CORPORATIONS are controlling our way of life in ever way and war is killing the whole planet….   people learn and know rather than "believe" truths are suppressed and kept out of medical school books..they know our true power and keep it hidden from us to have superiority over us…  they inject babies with neurotoxins and poison us many different ways..

    I have just seen a great video showing how the Chinese are greening their sandy deserts using their Straw "checkerboard"system. It appears to be very successful, so why isn't it used in the Sahara for instance.
