Farms and Food V’s Mines and Minerals

Posted on: July 28, 2009

Agricultural land that has any potential to produce food other than grazing should remain that way unfettered by the risk of mining to destroy its productive capacity. The reasons are clear. Population will be 8.74 billion by 2050 and increasing 20 million every 3 months to our North. Subsistence farming in the sub tropics cannot sustain such growth and those small farmers burn a lot of wood, sometimes setting fire to the forest and they have a lot of children who as they grow up and move on will not accept a like of stoop labor in the paddy .Rising affluence of the young is the reason for our meat exports passing the billion dollar mark, much of it in Big Max.
