Will you travel?
No.
But if I'm passing through on other business I'll give it a go.

Good article, aside from the no single diet solution title, followed by the single diet solution in the article.

There's no pleasing some people.
I assume you mean this paragraph.
Quote:
The quest for sustainable food production is highly complex and there will be no one-size-fits-all solution. Indeed, the necessary solutions will inevitably be highly complex, multi-faceted and site-specific: it comes down not simply to what you eat, but fundamentally how it is farmed. There is no single diet solution for everyone, and consuming nutritionally appropriate levels of pasture-raised livestock products as part of a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of sustainably produced vegetables and fruits is not just an acceptable option, itís a vital one. And while developed nations urgently need to reduce the production and consumption of unsustainable, low-welfare, intensively raised livestock products and highly processed foods (thereís a good chance many of us would feel a lot better for it), it is clear from current science that pasture-based livestock systems will not only continue to supply high-quality, nutritious food to global populations, but can help protect and enhance key ecosystem services and mitigate anthropocentric GHG emissions.

I struggle to see how

is a single diet choice other than all being sustainable.
Some will eat more or less of certain commodities than others as we do now.
So no I don't agree.
No mention of sustainable fisheries though.

I guess I read 'appropriate' wrong, rather it is a variable that could vary greatly, depending upon the circumstances.
