  • For the most finite resource of all, land, each year more than 10 million hectares of cropland are degraded and lost because of soil erosion. This comes at a time when food production should be increasing dramatically to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding population. Pimentel noted that per-capita cropland has declined 20 percent worldwide in the past decade.

    "The only way to reverse the growing imbalance between human population numbers and food supply is to actively conserve cropland, fresh water, energy and other environmental resources," Pimentel said.

    "We must focus on developing appropriate, ecologically safe agricultural technologies for increasing food production. Either we are brave enough to limit our numbers or nature will impose its limits on our numbers and existence," he added.
