Sam, thanks for this excellent post. I think we agree more than we disagree. I don't think and I don't think I wrote that yield=sustainability. A myopic focus on yield leaves out the other factors that you rightfully bring into play here. There's more to agriculture than calories/acre. But yield does matter, for obvious reasons. What I was trying to say is that I don't think organic=sustainability either. That's why I wrote the headline "organic isn't as green as you think." Some people think organic is the answer. Uh, no. There's no panacea here--not organic, not GMOs to "feed the world," not local food, not small, not industrial, not vegan, etc. Guided by science, we need to figure out what the best way is to grow specific crops in specific places with as light an environmental footprint as possible...while eating lower on the food chain, reducing food waste, eliminating subsidies for corn ethanol etc.
Thanks for telling it like it is, Nell. Mark Hurd may have been a great CEO, but he appears to have committed fraud or embezzlement. If that's not cause for firing, what is?
David, Peter, Brent & crew...congratulations on what looks like an outstanding event. Wish I could have been there to share it with you. best, Marc
