RECENTLY ON TOL:

Sustainable living is a laudible ideal but the math does not support it. Take a town as small as Lebenon. If everyone laid claim to the 10 acres needed to support one person over an entire year, there would be 190,000 acres or about 300 square miles. Then how would each parcel get enough water?
It is unfortunate that our population has grown to a size that cannot be support on the available land.
As much as I would like it to be part of the solution, I'm fraid it is not.
