    We need to control how many children we have and if we have more children we should be taxed more and pay for native trees each year for each child.

    Imagine sky scrappers being allowed to be built only if they include enough vertical farms within them to feed the maximum amount of people they can hold. Imagine if they are allowed to be constructed only if they include enough energy storage to power themselves for a couple of days or if they are covered mostly by power harvesting hardware, be it solar films, windmills, etc.

    We need to stop feeding countries that don't help themselves and even the homeless people wouldn't as support a roommate who don't work or contribute in some kind of way and adds problems instead of fixing them so why should another nation support another if we get nothing in return??? If a man produces his own garden and people demanded he share would that be fair?

    Best video posted by Vocativ yet. Urbanization, in its current state, isn't sustainable–in spite of all the "self-sustaining, organic, natural, (insert more buzz words) farming" urbanites claim to champion, and yet know nothing about. Vertical farming and aquaponics aren't all that new, but there's reasons for its limitations. At the end of the day, whether you solve the "land problem" or not, the real question hasn't been answered. You still have nearly 800 million starving people in the world, and that number is growing. So, the real problem is: how do you feed this planet? Especially with fewer and fewer people contributing to the food-production process and more and more people moving to urban-centers to work in white-collar jobs.
