Jack & Barbra Donachy Posted over 1 year ago Dan Barber: How I fell in love with a fish Hi Dan, Interesting response. You cite "inefficiency in distribution." So… what do you think is the root cause of this "inefficiency?" We maintain that distribution problems are a symptom of overpopulation, in that in many locales, people have overwhelmed local food sources. In addition, the notion that there is an inexhaustible supply of arable land and "farmable" seas is killing this planet. More people mean more forests cut down in the name of palm oil and soy bean production, more near-shore seas turned to fish farming, further aquifer depletion and so on. For those of us who wish to live in a world where biodiversity means more than farmed fish and soy beans, it's a sobering picture. As we indicated in our initial letter, "we like what we saw in the video about Palma Vista." However, we remain very concerned that anyone believes a solution to world hunger exists without addressing its root cause - overpopulation. There are not enough potential Palma Vistas in the world - nor enough forests available to cut down for soy bean production - to sustainably feed the billions and billions of humans on this earth.
