It is certainly a good point and I can well believe this could have been the downfall of past civilisations, but we have the technological capability already to cope if this became a widescale problem. Examples are ramping up industrial production of fertilisers and we already have the machinery to spread it on the land, vertical farming, hydroponics 11px-Wikipedia_logo.jpg and mariculture 11px-Wikipedia_logo.jpg. --CharlesC 00:37, 3 December 2007 (CET)
