We live in an irrational world

I have come to this conclusion after many years of thinking.

We have water shortage we grow lawns.
We have food shortage and we convert it into bio-fuels.
There is stravation and we waste.


How many thousands of acres are being used for growing lawns? I do like lawns but there are other greater concerns.

How many millions of gallons of water are being used for the lawns?

How many tons of pesticides (nasty stuff) are dumped into the ground?

How much energy is used for all these activities?

Do the benefits outweigh the negatives?

Grow something that is in short supply or more beneficial , be it Jatropa (both medicinal and biofuel source) or vegetables. Instead of maintainng your lawns turn it into food.

Well I am not the first to say this.
