I agree with this completely.

I am not at all familiar with solar farms, but what I hear you saying is that a solar farm provides equal amounts of lacto and meat products, without difference in effect on the environment. If this is the case, my question is, can the production from these solar farms equal demand? In other words, does a switch to solar farms necessarily require a diminished food output?

If the production will be less, then would we not be increasing the effect of "overloading" the environment, in this case on people, rather than the environment?

The negative effect on people I am envisioning is rising food prices and a disparate impact on those least able to afford basic necessities.
