8) More Farm Production = More Wilderness

While world population has increased more than fourfold since 1900, other things have increased too-the area of crops by 30 percent, harvest by 600 percent. At the same time, more than two billion acres of “secondary” tropical forest are now regrowing since farmers left them to head for the cities, and it is already rich in biodiversity. In fact, I will make an outrageous prediction; The world will feed itself to a higher and higher standard throughout this century without plowing any new land. (Readers Digest 04/12 pg. 152)
