"I think farming is inherently unsustainable" was written by Yankee.

Firstly what is farming?

Northern Hemisphere battery poultry, cows, vealers, etc., is not, but
controlled grazing is and has been for a million years??

Wild life had their own grazing rotations and developed wonderful pastures
in many countries.

So sustainable farming is no big deal, making humans open their eyes is.

Best wishes for 1997
