Au contraire, mon frere! I've been reassured by the local (loco?)
scientists that, when we have exhausted the supply of farmland and green
plants (currently expected sometime in the next fiscal cycle), we WILL in
fact be able to obtain our food supplies from existing petroleum reserves,
and -- as these become exhausted -- directly from nuclear energy. In fact,
as we 'speak', fusion reactors are being developed which will produce all
our food from an increasingly-common resource -- polluted water! So... not
to worry! 

My main concern is that, as soil resources continue to erode, we may have
to look further and further afield to find suitable places to stick our
heads in the sand. That would be sad. 

Relax, and enjoy your shoes!
