It seems easy to find problems - and what are the options?

Like herbicides and pesticides for farming - I'd rather they did without, but without them we'd lose half our crop to vermin (as elsewhere whiteout these). One hopeful option was, for example GMO Corn that contains a bacterial toxin (one used by organic farmers) so that the crop is spared without spraying. But the complainers for these things dread that even more than the toxic sprays ! ? ! So, who's to starve while the complainers complain with while their BELLIES ARE FULL ?

One option, of course, is to eliminate say, about half the world's population. That would definitely cut demand.

All the points you bring up are correct - increasing demand. It's a cycle. But where's the solutions to these - and I mean real solutions, not just "We Must Stop (doing whatever) Now"?
