"We plant more than 90 million acres of corn, and it’s in huge surplus. And it’s not even food. What if we planted actual food instead? Take corn, and add in other giant crops that basically just feed animals—crops like soybeans, barley, hay, sorghum—and two-thirds of U.S. farmland goes to animal feed.
Such a small portion of our land goes to grow actual food that people consume, that if we really wanted to increase that supply, it would be pretty easy. The trick would be convincing the country — and other countries that import animal feed from the U.S.— to go vegan.”
