It’s safe to say that at no time in human history have more people been better fed than are in our current era. So of course the left has to make sure that doesn’t continue.
John Kerry, the man who has almost perfected the art of looking down his nose at the commoners so very far beneath him, told a group of co-elitists at a recent climate summit that, in the words of a Reuters reporter, “cutting greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural production is essential to the global fight against climate change.”
In Kerry’s own words, he claimed “we can’t get to net zero, we don’t get this job done, unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution.”
The special presidential envoy for climate, a job he is perfectly suited for as it requires no accomplishments, only a membership in a “select group of human beings” and an enormously inflated sense of self, then confused matters by declaring that “a 2-degree future could result in another 600 million people not getting enough to eat.”
“You can’t continue to warm the planet while also expecting to feed it.”
So let’s see if we have this right: The way to feed more people is to slash agriculture production?
The eco-zealots who have stoked the climate scare aren’t open to genetically modified farming, which can increase the yields of some crop varieties by a factor of 10. Kerry and the climate cabal are simply not interested in any sort of innovation that would boost not only crop harvests but the nutrition density of our foods.
What, then, is their solution for feeding the masses while at the same time lowering greenhouse gas emissions? Of course – we must reduce food consumption and when eating is absolutely necessary, gobble up some bugs. The climatistas are focused on a forced austerity.
We’ve already seen the beginning of the diet that the climate alarmist-elitist complex has in mind for the rest of us. Dutch officials want to shut down livestock farms using buyouts. Energy policies in the U.S. and Europe are driving up prices, which will inhibit food production and disrupt distribution. Boy Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has proposed rules that will choke Canadian farming. The Biden administration, as documented by the Heartland Institute, has launched an “omni-directional assault on our food production system.” That pesticide bans in France are an existential threat to farmers is not unknown to European “leaders.”
While the rest of us “dine” on insects and worms and occasionally enjoy Cuban-size rations of food that doesn’t trigger our gag reflexes, elitists such as Kerry will not only never miss a meal, they will continue to dine sumptuously, having saved for themselves the finest culinary experiences.
