Pipe dreams as Global Warming Logic

Eish!  Just had to change the channel when a 'well-educated-PhD-holding-Africanist-womanist-nature-conservationist-culturist-healer-' posited the solution to global warming.  She began well, talking about how our modern lifestyles are affecting nature's cycles and heightenning global warming.  She lost me though when the solution she offered included grain and food offerings to Mother Nature. 

Simply put, grain and food offerings to ward off the potential catastrophe of such gigantic proportions measure in the tonnes.  That equals yet more forests cleared to cultivate yet more grain to not only surpass regular consumption needs, but to appease this deity.  Eh, looks like an instant recipe for MORE global warming disaster for me. 

It's just as bad as the pipe dreams from overseas, that there will always be more- that you can eat all you want with no serious consequence on the environment....hogwash....speaking of hogs, how many acres does it take to feed one prize hog that will give me bacon, pork chops, and pork sama sumi, not counting the chunks for my stew! We are a giant mess if we aim to either appease Mother Nature and ourselves (with our population tripling by the decade) with food, food and more food...and expect a corpenicus happily forever after...how many earths do we got?
