bobby you are so lost, You really have to stop reading those manuals. Are you aware of how much money the Federal govt pays Farmers NOT to raise or grow certain items?

If it was not for control hunger could be eradicated.

Actually we do not have the tools.

We are rapidly drying out and destroying entire lakes, ponds and reservoirs to supply our farm lands with the water that they need.

We cannot continue to destroy one environment to fund the creation of another... Least we have no usable farm land.

"Hunger is a political issue, not a technological one. "

Bingo.

To the OP: I believe we already have the tools and available land to feed everyone on earth. Hunger is a political issue, not a technological one.

VA I understand, but most people have more than one vehicle. Some have more than two. IMO nuclear power is wise choice, and electric cars can serve a valuable purpose. But the infrastructure must support them, and that takes power. Again IMO if a trend were to build the infrastructure would follow. You would see parking lots with meters for charging, hopefully. That would extend the everyday range of the vehicles. Then that big long distance comfort vehicle could be powered by fossil fuel.

Personally I think there would be more acceptance for city vehicles than large scale mass transit with the public. Having a commuter car just makes more sense for people than lugging groceries on a bus.

It is possible to grow hydroponically but at agreat expense.... I have a relative who has a hydroponic farm, (since 1990) they grow organic bean sprouts, Wheat grass, and a variety of other products. There is a down side to this growing process, The number 1 factor is electric consumption, Fuel consumption, as well as water consumption. It is a feasible process but not a cost effective as is led to beleive, They sell wheat grass Juice @ 40 dollars an ounce, or a bag of wheat grass which yeilds @ 2 ounces of the juice for @ 30.00 , bean spouts cost almost double what is grown naturally . Even Marijauna growers know that hydropoinc growers are not cost effective, Look at how many bypass thier meters, stealing electricity.... it is not a cost effective alteranative. Well unless you steel the electric.

I actually had written "get this kid to Epcot" in my initial reply. The thing is hydroponics is not competitive with conventional farming in most cases. This may one day change, but probably not within our lifetime.

Fjep: Most people only need a commuter vehicle on an everyday basis. But for the once in a while they need something more, they will not tolerate it being unable to go more than 100 miles.

When we bought our new car last year, we chose between an X3 and a 335i. The X3 had the ability to accommodate a trailer hitch etc for our bike rack and a big trunk capacity. The 335i would have been perfectly adequate (and more fun) for about 350 days out of the the 365 in the year, but inadequate for the other 15. So guess which one we bought? Anything which will not flex to your needs is suddenly at a major disadvantage, and electric vehicles are always going to have this problem, unless somehow they can be charged in 5 minutes or less.

I haven't really followed this thread. But if we're still discussing hydroponics. The best example of it is in Epcot (in Disney FL). It is absolutely possible to sustain a life [growing foodstuff] without soil.

Va:

This is true. Nuclear technology has progressed by a great deal. Generation 4 reactors aren't anything like 3 mile island... If they lose control over a gen 3/4 reactor, the. It shuts itself down as the reaction automatically begins to stop without human controllers keeping it going.

As fit paying compensation, shirt if rich men losing everything when dealing with something this large... There isn't a price which can be placed. Nuclear reactors can destroy entire areas, devestate entire cities. Even bill gates cannot repay the damage he would cause if his greed or rush to get a untested reactor onlined was to be the cause of the devestation.

As such. High risk means losing everything and the risk are no higher than nuclear energy.
