Where did I assert that you could?  My statement was that you could
improve agricultural yields by improving technology, which I don't think 
is an extreme point of view, since that's what we've been doing in order 
for the earth to sustain its current population.

BTW, WTH is with all those +Ablahblah-?  You cannot simply introduce
some random technology into a standardised message exchange service, and 
expect anythong but technological inefficiencies. :-)

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
