Synthesis

  1. Humanity requires food for survival and uses fertilizer to exponentially increase crop yields to support the exponential growth.
  2. Fuel is required to supply this process, mainly in the form of natural gas. Oil and coal are also used to supply the raw materials included in the refining process which contributes to fertilizer production.
Henry Kissinger, co-author of the NSSM 200 paper.
