That history of our species has been the struggle to try and work out how to gain enough calories to see the next day: as it actually is for all other species. We’re the one that has worked out farming, economy, trade, to solve it. And we’re here in this happy day when it is actually all coming to fruition.
Consider what is the complaint. Instead of people dropping dead of starvation next week we’re now facing the idea that people might drop dead in a few decades or more from an excess of food availability. That second, in and of itself, may not be all that desirable an outcome. But compared to what went before we do indeed insist that this is a vast, joyous, victory.
So, happy dance! With, of course, lashings of ginger beer, burgers, milkshakes, fries, donuts, ice creams and syrup covered waffles to sate the appetites so created.
