Methane is responsible for nearly as much global warming as all other non-CO2 greenhouse gases put together. Methane is 21 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2. While atmospheric concentrations of CO2 have risen by about 31% since pre-industrial times, methane concentrations have more than doubled. Whereas human sources of CO2 amount to just 3% of natural emissions, human sources produce one and a half times as much methane as all natural sources. In fact, the effect of our methane emissions may be compounded as methane-induced warming in turn stimulates microbial decay of organic matter in wetlands—the primary natural source of methane. link

As global warming continues areas that are not good for farming now may do to the change in weather patterns may become productive as more condensation falls in newer areas like in the south west US

Human population is fine...a reasonable average human consumption rate is not...If we want to start getting rid of people because of over population,start with America And the EU...let the third world countries have a bash at keeping this place nice and tidy....But seriously...the world is NOT overpopulated...just the ratio between rich and poor consumption is slightly iffy.The population could double,and with the right planning etc etc it would be fine...stop scare mongering....
There are 6515 acres ready for planting which is, in intensive city farming terms, 283,793,400 square feet.
seemingly conservative estimates could produce enough vegetables on Vancouver's available 6515 acres to feed all 427,000 inhabitants of the City with some to spare.

while i agree 50% is pretty steep i think it is laughable you think this is simply an issue of us being played like ******.
the human population is growing exponentially and if you believe that there is nothing to fear from this than you are playing yourself.
at some point humans are going to outstrip the carrying capacity of their habitat, planet Earth.
this has to do with things more basic and fundamental than pricing.
though i agree this could be the tip of the elites hidden dagger of population control i also KNOW it is an inevitable circumstance.
