There is a clear example of how world would look without energy, without fertilizers, without electricity, without technology

"Well, like I said, there’s a whole menu of them that we have to pay attention to. We’re going to have to inhabit the landscape differently because whether we like it or not, suburbia is going to fail.
Unfortunately, one of the main ideological arguments over the past 20 years has been that suburbia is OK because people like it. That’s the argument of David Brooks at the New York Times and Peter Huber at Forbes magazine.
But what we’re going to find is that it doesn’t matter what people like or not, it’s a matter of what kind of reality the universe presents to them and then they’re going to have to respond.
We’re probably going to have to return to living in towns, villages, cities that are going to be scaled differently. We’re going to have to organize an agricultural landscape that’s inhabited differently because growing food will require more human attention..."

First: I do not think that is WHAT people like.
May be THAT is what they are brainwashed to like.
When you see on TV, on your Computer screen, on big advertising panels all over, that what you should like is this or that, THEN you like it.
And you like what is convenient for them to sell.

Second: In my grandfather´s times ALL was organic agriculture.
They ate meat once a week and they were lucky, because many didn´t even once a week.
Yes they were thinner and didn´t have problems with "uricemia" (I do not know the English word for it)but the average age was 50, while now is 84.
Some would say that it is not the problem.
Because they are 20.

There is a clear example of how world would look without energy, without fertilizers, without electricity, without technology: Africa.
There Nature is still uncontaminated.
Would you like to live there?
