And remember much of our current crop land is watered unsustainably and henceforth must be
converted to grazing land. We must also eventually return our excreta to the soil as we must 
eventually abandon the Haber process as it adds carbon to the biosphere.

No more open end processes in a finite world. Eventually only Sun powered cycles are sustainable.
Perhaps we can use thorium for a thousand years for the transition. Perhaps. I’m placing no money
on it.
