    How many Earths do we need? - BBC News

    From a think tank called Global Footprint Network. In brief, if everyone on Earth consumed as much as the average American, we would need four Earths to sustain them.

    GFN is the first to admit that their figures are wild guesses. But even critics seem to agree that, if anything, they're underestimating how much of a deficit would exist.

    This is some hardcore paranoia.

    However I also suspect that some time in the next twenty years, most of it will not involve the animal husbandry practiced for most of recorded history.

    It's a pretty safe bet that it won't because science and technology will respond to market forces that seek to provide meat and meat based products without having to pay the costs of raising and maintaining food animals as we know them today.

    We're not raising cows for their intellectual abilities, so why raise them at all if we can cultivate beef tissue without the cow?
    From there, we only need concern ourselves with nutritional value, appearance, taste and, of course, safety and last but certainly not least...COST.

    It's nice to imagine environmentalists pushing us away from ranching but I suspect it will be cost.
    If the beef industry gets wind of the idea that beef that is virtually identical in every way can come from something other than a walking, eating, burping, farting and crapping cow, for a lower cost, say goodbye to cattle ranching.

    Ditto for every other meat product in existence.
    Mmmmm.....tasty.......

    In fairness though, it is pretty much every member of Congress who foul the air, needlessly wasting oxygen. That's where the Green New Deal needs to start, saving the oxygen in DC.
