UK faces ‘significant’ land shortage

UK faces ‘significant’ land shortage http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-28003435

I came across this article this morning,  and although Canada has no such land shortage on its horizon, the fact that there is not enough arable land to go about in the world to deal with the rising global population is alarming. 

Yet few policy makers are even broaching this subject, and focus on the topics du jour such as energy and the environment (these all dovetail together though).

And at the deep crux of the whole matter is something policy makers don’t even want to touch with a ten foot pole: soon there will be too many people in world. Then what?
