In older posts I said that we could be more people on Earth without any problems. It seems that this assertion is not correct because we face a new problem coming from the non-renewable energies and minerals. This time it is not petrol, it is phosphorus. Phosphorus is essential for living beings and modern agriculture uses it a lot to grow vegetables and cereals (and, of course, indirectly to feed animals too).

Phosphorus mines will be totally depleted within a hundred years and the production peak will be in 2030 or 2040. Another big challenge for humanity as a whole. You can find much more precise data on internet about this.

Each year a vegetarian eats 0,6 kg of phosphorus, a non-vegetarian eats 1,6 kg of it. Let’s all become vegetarian !
