I've got confidence in that remaining 1%.

I'm sure they're still as horny as the rest of us.

And I am going to single-handedly bring back the act of planting apple tree seeds.

Apples and chicken for everybody on Earth!

Clearly your new avatar should be Johnny Appleseed.

Are you looking to unleash the hidden nutritional power of apples?

You should look into rabbits. Australia's rabbit population started off at 24 in 1859. A hundred years later, it was tens or hundreds of millions. A chemical toxic was found that killed off 99.9 per cent. Now, barely 50 years later, the number is at more than 300 million again.

We should also look into scrapping Monsanto, and other companies that dedicate millions into creating plant seeds which are infertile.

We'll be ok.
It is more financially sound to produce more grain than meat because more than half of the grain crops produced go into the feeding of livestock. If you don't have the proper food to feed livestock herds, then you can't have chickens and pigs fucking each other.

Score two for bunnies then. No one wants to eat alfalfa pellets anyway. Of course, then the problem might be they'd start producing grain-fed rabbits to plump them up for market, and they'd get so fat they can't get it on anymore which is what's happened to turkeys.

Indeed.

Perhaps feedthetree has a point?

A growing, more affluent population competing for ever scarcer resources could make for an "unrecognizable" world by 2050, researchers warned at a major US science conference Sunday. The United Nations has predicted the global population will reach seven billion this year, and climb to nine billion by 2050, "with almost all of the growth occurring in poor countries, particularly Africa and South Asia," said John Bongaarts of the non-profit Population Council.
To feed all those mouths, "we will need to produce as much food in the next 40 years as we have in the last 8,000," said Jason Clay of the Wildlife Fund at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
"By 2050 we will not have a planet left that is recognizable" if current trends continue, Clay said.
The swelling population will exacerbate problems, such as resource depletion, said John Casterline, director of the Initiative in Population Research at Ohio State University.
But incomes are also expected to rise over the next 40 years -- tripling globally and quintupling in developing nations -- and add more strain to global food supplies.
People tend to move up the food chain as their incomes rise, consuming more meat than they might have when they made less money, the experts said.
Planet could be 'unrecognizable' by 2050, experts say - Yahoo! News

Oh, absolutely; resource strain and continued full-throttle habitat destruction are immense problems. As a botanist friend of mine who travels widely in Africa on research excursions recently told me, ours is the last generation that'll be able to remember the planet as it was. But there are only so many viable ways to dramatically curb population growth, and the most reliable is simply increased prosperity. Unfortunately, that also means rapid development and far more resource-intensive lifestyles. The world total fertility rate is expected to decline to replacement fertility by 2030 then continue to shrink; the question is how we'll manage with what we have in the meantime. Though as kramwest said, food production (as opposed to food distribution) may well be the least of our worries.
