10. But spent farmland is renewed ecosystems in the making.

And as an agronomist, there really is no spent farmland. Only poorly managed land. Spent farmland is routinely made productive again with proper soil management.

If you believe John Muir, which I do, nature has value outside of man. Every acre we put solar panels on is spoiled land. I will never be able to regain the flora and fauna evolution gave it.

Not saying I disagree with it, but we need to realize green energy is not environmentally neutral. It totally removes huge swaths of land from ever being natural. But perhaps harvesting energy is as important as grain?

Pretend that going green has no cost will eventually kill us politically.
