I propose we stop feeding annual grains that are fit for human consumption to livestock. This could free up a third of our annual cropland (2) for perennial systems. It will probably mean less meat consumption in the Global North.

Maybe eventually I'll figure out which ones to plant so they survive, and someone in the future might get something to eat from them.
