J. Kerry Tells Africans Not to Farm Because of Global Warming

No More New Farms for Africa

kerry-death During the “Resilience and Food Security in a Changing Climate” panel, Kerry noted that Africa faces a starvation problem. With thousands going to bed hungry each night, it’s undeniable that one of Africa’s largest problems is starvation.  [1] Kerry claimed that around the world, one in eight people suffers from chronic hunger, and in sub-Sahara Africa that number regrettably is one in four. So looking to the future, it’s only going to be more difficult to bring these numbers down.” [2]  The secretary of state explained that the increased difficulty will stem from a quickly growing world population — he said that the seven billion people the world struggles to feed today will be nine billion by 2050 — more than half of which, Kerry continued, is set to occur in Africa.
 Oddly enough, Kerry had the audacity to remind the crowd that despite the fact that there are millions of starving children in Africa, they ought to refrain from creating new farms because it contributes to “climate change.” No, instead, they should just make existing lands “more productive.”   Kerry said:
Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place. It’s a twisted circle. Always complicated. But we also know that there are ways to change that. For example, rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process that typically releases significant amounts of carbon pollution, we can, instead, concentrate our efforts on making existing farmlands more productive. [3]

The former Democratic Massachusetts senator stressed that the effects of climate change are already being felt around the world:

We’re not talking about some distant future. We’re not talking about some pie in the sky, unproven set of theories, as they were in the earliest days of population growth or other challenges that we face. The impacts of climate change are already being felt everywhere in the world. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, and everywhere in between and around, and they are only going to get worse,” he said, noting that will continue to be the case unless world leaders are able to reach an agreement in Paris next year at the UN conference on climate change. [4]

The situation is very alarming according to Kerry, for those who need convincing, “all you have to do is look at the extreme conditions that farmers are dealing with around the word. Hotter temperatures, longer draughts —like in California for our instance and other parts of the world — unpredictable rainfall patterns.”  Kerry continued his climate fearmongering disgression highlighting Delhi, India’s torrential rains. “Intense wildfires and you can run the list, I’m not going to run it today.”  [5] Kerry went on to say that the increase in carbon is not only detrimental to the amount of food available, but it is also making what is available less nutritious.

The intersection between climate change and food is not just about quantity. We’re now seeing carbon pollution making some of the food we do grow less nutritious than it used to be. […] Rising carbon translates to lower levels of zinc and iron in wheat and other cereal grains. [6]

Kerry called the loss of nutrients supposedly caused by co2 poisoning a “hidden hunger.” He then appealed to the Africans to focus on the impact of  “food security” and climate change now, while looking for ways to cut the release of carbon, and he announced that the United States expects to formally sign onto the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture. He further encouraged other nations to join as well, when the United Nations is expected to launch the initiative this September in New York.  Those few people who have the proper set of ears that enables them to hear what Kerry really said are smart enough to understand that in fact “Smart Agriculture” is noting but a PR word that announce that pretty soon only a small chosen few will be allowed to produce food and that the big monopolies of the food industry will take over the food supply of the whole planet.  He added:

I know that several other African countries here are prepared to make similar announcements, and we are working together to produce a declaration announcing our mutual intent to join this effort. [7]

Why all this pressure to join this “Smart Agriculture” lunacy?  Why should Africans should pursue a path that make harder for them to have the proper amounts of food for their people? Because, like Obama have told them, “the bottom line is, the United States is making a major and long-term investment in Africa’s progress.”  The President’s past track record concerning his capacity and will to hold on to his promises make people wonder whether his rhetoric really matches his policy agenda.  The people from Africa would do well to remember the president’s assurances that Americans could keep their doctors, hospitals and insurance, when they hear his fine words and lofty promises for Africa. [8]  Just plain and simple logic would tip them the horrible truth behing the nice words.  The fact is, no modern economies, healthcare systems or wealth-building technologies can function in the absence of abundant, reliable, affordable electricity and motor fuels. They require far more than can possibly come from “climate-smart” wind, solar and biofuel sources. Adequate food and nutrition require modern agriculture. Eradicating insect-transmitted diseases requires chemical insecticides.  Like Paul Driessen from townhall.com have said, anybody with a brain can see that “Obama Administration policies on all these matters are likely to hold Africa back for decades.” [9]

The Hidden Globalist GMO Agenda Embedded in John Kerry’s Speech


This is the “Smart Agriculture” John Kerry is talking about!

On the surface, for those who are unfamiliar with the global governance lingo, what Kerry is proposing sounds almost like a smart thing to do.  Like The Daily Sheeple‘s reporter Melissa Melton have said, “if only […] that advice was coming from someone who wasn’t a Skull and Bones tool of the U.S. corporate establishment, it might be easier to even attempt to consider it in a positive light.” [10]  But when one look more closely at what has been said, to words that have been used, this may not be such a good idea after all. When Kerry talks about “making existing farmlands more productive,” it’s presumed this would mean Africa needs to adopt American farming methods. Based upon that assumption, some critics believe Kerry is really pushing GMOs under the guise of global warming fears.  It seems that the phrase “more productive” has been hijacked and is just another way of saying genetically modified organisms (GMOs).  Using emotional words, fake concerns about the climate-change and bogus environmental issues, what Kerry and the rest of the Obama Administration are really pushing down the throat of Africa here is nothing more and nothing less than the globalist-driven genetically modified big agribusiness agenda.  We remember that in 2012, the White House and USAID introduced the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition at the G8, ostensibly to end hunger in Africa — though critics quickly slammed it for slashing aid funds and promoting corporate agriculture interests (such as Monsanto and Syngenta).  Other critics and opponents in Africa dubbed it a new form of colonialism and were absolutely horrified when they witnessed the complete rewriting of laws to favor private agribusiness investment. According to the London Guardian, “African governments agreed to change seed, land and tax laws to favour private investors over small farmers.” In essence, the brunt of the program would result in “assisted” small farmers being forced into dependence on purchasing private GMO seeds and boutique hybrids, unable to save seeds and in debt to purchases for farming equipment, training, etc. [11]

While Africa Starves to Keep Greenhouse Gases Down, Kerry Ride the Ocean in a Giant Yatch


Kerry’s 7 million dollars yatch

So what Kerry is really saying is that Africa must endure and keep on starving so a few rich aristocrats can have their “green economy” and take the control of the ressources of the whole planet while preventing everybody else to become independent and to help themselves when it come their food supply. David Greenfield from FrontPage Mag commented the speech saying ironically: “Let them eat Heinz Ketchup” is not an option.  He goes on to explain the twisted liberal mind-set behind Kerry’s speech:

Greens […] care more about Carbon than people. That’s the sociopathic position on display here. The Greens respond to everything by touting more efficiency, meanwhile they run up the cost of the original product. They’ve done that with energy in the West. Now they’re trying to do it with food in Africa. [12]

John Kerry’s fixation on “climate-smart” energy and agriculture suggests that he lives on another planet and cannot imagine life outside a $5-million mansion – and certainly not life for destitute families in sub-Saharan Africa.  If they follow the dictate of the Obama administration it means that starving Africanswill be asked to retrained from farming in the name of co2 pollution while John Kerry will be bathing his ass in the sun riding his 7 million dollars yatch.  This kind of total lunacy is precisely the reason that it is now very difficult to take liberal seriously nowadays.  The left doesn’t need irrefutables scientific proofs nor do they need to win any scientific debates in order to know if human induced climate chance is real or not.  They feels that climate change exists and to them, this feeling is more important than addressing serious real-world problems like starvation, economy and real scientific facts about the role of human activity in climate changes.  The end game, of course, is to keep the third world down in the ditch and to create monopolies for international food cartels.  So, if we follow what Kerry is saying, these African parents should just sacrifice their children on the altar of climate change rather than grow crops to feed them properly. What a disgusting, elitist, idiotic thing to say especially when we know his rich wife’s family mad a fortune in the food industry. The Forbes 400 survey estimated in 2004 that his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, had a net worth of $750 million. However, estimates have frequently varied, ranging from around $165 million to as high as $3.2 billion, according to a study in the Los Angeles Times. Regardless of which figure is correct, Kerry was the wealthiest U.S. Senator whilst serving in the Senate. Kerry is wealthy in his own name, and is the beneficiary of at least four trusts inherited from Forbes family members, including his mother, who died in 2002.  According to the Boston Herald, dated July 23, 2010, Kerry commissioned construction on a new $7 million yacht (a Friendship 75) in New Zealand and moored it in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, where the Friendship yacht company is based.[13] The article claimed this allowed him to avoid paying Massachusetts taxes on the property including approximately $437,500 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of about $500.[14]   Pretty easy for him to ask starving Africans to “tighten up their belts.”  It goes without saying that any starving African  family who is hearing Kerry’s rant about global warming and his mumbo jumbo concerning “smart agriculture” are entitled to take what he is saying “with a grain of salt.”
