Thomas Pogge: Medicine for the 99 percent
So pesticide manufacturers would be paid by efficacy divided by safety risk? I suppose biological pest control would be included in this, if a beetle can eradicate a certain pest with no harmful consequences, why not?

Homaro Cantu + Ben Roche: Cooking as alchemy
You clearly are so passionate and have the best intentions for your ideas. So it is clear that taste-wise all your awesome inventions taste exactly like the original. That is great. I think it is important to begin documenting very detailed nutritional comparison between the original and your creation. If your creations(along with a miracle berry, which are the coolest things EVER) are in fact more nutritious it WILL be our future food, and frankly I dont give a crap if im eating a wheatgrass and peanut butter sandwich and it TASTES like pb&j. Unfortunately what I see as a possibility is Mcdonalds using your ideas to decrease costs and increase their margins, by crafting menu items from fewer cheaper ingredients tossing some miraculin in there, and what you get is a delicious food devoid of all nutrition even calories. If that keeps people hungry, why wouldnt mcdonalds go that route? Since I used the Mberry years ago, I dreamed of manufacturing it for as cheap as possible and giving it to diabetics, why is it so expensive anyway? The work you are doing is so exciting, if I lived in new york I'd ask you for a job. Since I'm stuck in Philadelphia, how about I get back to you when I create a cheese steak alternative from soft pretzels and pollution from new jersey? haha

Open Source Food Supply
This is really less about growing food, and more about managing the local food supply in the most efficient manner. What John Jeavons did would be difficult in cities.

Why do TEDster bloggers get offended when others challenge their belief in an intellectual debate?
You should argue that with your contemporary S.R. Ahmadi. He supposes that the dead sea is not the lowest place on earth, because the qur'an says that a major battle was fought on the lowest place on earth. Generally when something is proven using scientific means, such as finding the lowest point on land, and the earth being round, there is no disagreement. Especially when that data is 1379 YEARS OLD!!! The fact that there is still a group of people called the flat earth society, despite scientific proof; the same way you still believe in the qur'an despite massive ambiguity in the text, does not mean science failed. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein
