Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's like almost any finite resource.  Oil, trees, minerals...we've overconsumed, and now need the rest of the world not to catch up to our levels while we do a very poor job/no job at all of cutting back.

One thing about which I've never been sure, though, is the practicality/viability of organic/non-intensive agriculture without animals as part of the mix?  In crop rotation, haven't the nitrogen-fixers traditionally been used as animal food?
