  1. Genesis 1:29-30 King James Version (KJV)
    29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

    30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

    Isaiah 65:25 King James Version (KJV)
    25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.

  2. Lots of problems….how can we redesign our lifestyles so that everyone can positively contribute to the human survival?

  3. Dear (supposed) superior ones. We were right, we were living off of the land. You called us savages and laughed at how we lived like our ancestors. You called us primitive. Now you are copying us and calling it going green. You are destroying the only planet you can live on. How superior are you now that the earth is destroying everyone because of your destructive, poisonous inventions?

  4. Range-fed beef has positive impacts on the environment AND your health. Grass-fed (not grained) beef is high in mono-unsaturated fats, similar to olive oils.

    Grazing doesn't require tilling and done well can regenerate soils in ways that monocropping can't. It is best if it is done in a way that promotes savannah development over just straight grassland.

    Read Mark Shepard's book about Restoration Agriculture (don't bother with the videos until you've read the book, seriously). Also check out the American quarterly publication "Permaculture Design". This magazine has excellent articles on problem solving food production conundrums. It is much better for farmers and consumers alike. It is good for the land also.

  5. America uses excess wheat ,which they throw into the sea to maintain supply and demand in the world market,feed animals for meat or milk what a crime when there are counties without food or the cost of food is very high.

  6. Incredibly insightful story about photographing agriculture. As a photographer he shouldn't be expected to give a solution, but only to capture the moments, I believe. And he did so wonderfully.

  7. Why didn't he mention the fact that more than 80% of the grain produced goes to feed livestock? And what livestock CAFO's are doing to our soil, ground water, rivers and lakes? No one seems to want to address that. Feeding grain to animals so wealthy can eat meat, that is a crime against humanity.

  8. Wow, I'm so grateful you took those pictures. I teach deep ecology and they will be so useful to illustrate my classes.

    Absolutely amazing.

  9. To feed the humanity it start with education not with producing extra Frankenstein food, it is very clear US has some kind of hidden agenda behind all this modification of our food chain. It is very clear its not the good one ether this agenda, sad to say most of human kind don't see them self as an intelligent creature. Most of them do have an explored ground within of their brain, unfortunately they don't know how to used that unexplored ground no body guiding them to do so. The ones with less intelligent's took control of most of the masses because they think they have education, treating the masses like garbage. If people the one are charge of most of human kind they had real intelligent's, they could have solved all the issues facing human kind in heart bit. How we can see all the chaos round the globe, if any human being think that just part of to be intelligent, than they haven't seen true educated person.            

  10. Absolutely amazing….

    That yesterday in the car, my friend farted & I was able to identify his lunch the previous day, which was a turkey sandwich to which he confessed was correct! Absolutely amazing on my end.
