The Future of Food & Energy
The human population has reached a level far in excess of the ability of the planet to sustain it long-term through using synthetic nitrogen. To be able to feed the burgeoning population without fossil fuels and keep greenhouse gas emissions at a safe level will require a drastic change. This required change will have many human and ecological health benefits but puts New Zealand in a challenging position.
