Science can accomplish whatever you want. The choice is yours.

Enjoyed this Youtube video: Haber Process, World War I and the Green Revolution which describes the development of the Haber Process for the fixation of Nitrogen from air, its use in manufacture of chemical weapons during WWI, and its subsequent use as synthetic fertilizer that helped drive the Green Revolution.  Love the final message.  May use the book, The Poisonous Cloud, by Haber's son Ludwig and/or Enriching the Earth by Vaclav Smil.
