He also calls to attention how the grain shortage can effect the United State’s relations with other countries as money and supplies continue to be borrowed from it’s fellow nations. According to Brown, National Debt will rise in correlation with environmental image due to the fact that the flat rate of all agricultural products is being promoted as less than the actual price of the entire production process. A theoretical solution Brown proposes contains for components.
These include cutting carbon emissions, stabilizing population growth, eradicating poverty, and restoring the earths natural systems. He believes that all the problems that need to be faced can be dealt with using existing technologies. Ronald Bailey offers his response to Brown’s worldview of food security in an article titled, “Never Right, But Never in Doubt. Bailey questions Brown’s credibility in his opinion that the rising food shortage will soon affect our global civilization.
Bailey calls to the reader’s attention that there have been some ambiguities with Brown’s grain estimations in the past and there is no way to tell that his predictions were taken from a dependable source. It is clear in the article that Bailey believes that falling water tables and pesticide resistant crops should be the focal points of concern when addressing global food security. Essentially, Bailey and Brown’s worldviews are fairly similar. They OTOH see the value of the natural world and believe its influence on society is monumental.
Each of their opinions as to the extent and the causes of societal decline in accordance with the strain that humanity places upon nature may be different, but their views of the earth are quite similar. I personally believe we are facing an environmental crisis. Choose not to turn a blind eye on the damage I know is caused by modern technological pollution and realize that our years Of ignorance will soon catch up to us in a way that will be nothing less than harmful and tragic.
I am not completely invoiced of any one cause quite yet, but I am sure the overall damage will be the result of many different factors our society has chosen to ignore in order to maintain a more convenient lifestyle. I also believe the extent of of the casualties of the earth as a whole will suffer is being too blissfully pushed aside by humanity. I would hope that a safe, technological fix will be available in the coming centuries, but one can never be sure of these things. We can only hope for, research, and explore the help of our natural elements that were so graciously given to us by whatever creator produced us.
