That oil is coming out of the ground one way or another - it will get to the US via rail or trucks if there is not enough pipeline capacity or it will go to China in tankers. Unless the whole lot of Americans are suddenly going to adopt the lifestyle of a 'developing nation' and the rest of the world stops having babies - its all just shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic.

While I'll concede that GMO crops are an environmental nightmare - they are a necessity for a planet with 9 billion+ people - the idea that they are unhealthy - or that organic food is some sort of panacea (or a realistic alternative for 9 billion people) is just a fantasy
