Wow! I like that word...I think you did coin it, and if not I'll support you're claim anyways. You know growing your own is a great example of how everyone can have a positive impact. There is this great architect I saw on TV from Japan (or maybe Singapore I forget) whose whole focus is on redesigning buildings to fully incorporate water retriculation (a closed system essentailly where all water in an area is recycled and reused in infinatum) greenery for food production (supplementary) and CO2 processing as well as being basically energy generating and self sufficient structures hooked up to a grid only to give excess energy, not draw it. Thereby removing 90% of the need for seperate power stations and most waste water treatment centres. The technology is there already, but retro-fitting entire cities takes a lot of work and political will.
I'm also sure humans are OVER CONSUMING meat based products, hence my own 3 days a week (roughly) of vegetarianism. Organic anything is way better than syntheticly produced/ assisted. But we must realize naturally occuring species have extremely limited room for development be cross-breeding etc. It's a sad fact that super yields really will require GMO technology...but hopefully be better utalizing our resources we can avoid the demand for such super yields. I think essentialy the main issue is how to more equittably distribute what resources we have and restructure our economies away from fossil fuel dependencies.
Finally it's great to see KOTRers able to toss ideas around like this, though it might need it's own thread soon! Whatever differences we have, our hopes and goals are far more similar.

Indeed.

Yeah, it likely does need its own thread now! We went from UNIMD preparation, to UNIMD high fives for a great day, to "how are we going to sustain ourselves?" I love the evolution of threads.

Okay, and I'm going to copyright the 'sustainetarian' term!
