Bruce Sundquist has completed a scholarly analysis of the sustainability of the world’s systems for producing food, wood and freshwater. The paper, “Sustainability of the World’s Outputs of Food, Wood and Freshwater for Human Consumption” is a must read for a thorough understanding of the world situation. It can be found at http://home.alltel.net/bsundquist1/su0.html#A1, with five chapters on separate pages covering soils and croplands, forest lands, grazing lands, irrigated lands and freshwater supplies, and fisheries. Thanks to Bruce for bringing the paper to my attention.
