From 1961 to 2013, the world population more than doubled from 3.1 to 7.2 billion during which time food output tripled, according to the United Nations. Contrary to the doomsday forecasts, we are slowly winning the battle against world hunger. In the past 70 years, the percentage of undernourished people in the world has fallen from 30% to 11% and continues to fall.
The world has passed the point of peak agricultural land use. Today, farmers are feeding the growing world population and providing us the best food in history while at the same time returning land to nature.
Over a decade ago, electrical engineer and MBA graduate Steve Goreham gave up his business interests to focus on fighting for freedom in the United States. He initially concentrated on the human-caused global warming fraud and set about to write the most comprehensive yet understandable books about the insanity of the idea that humans control the Earth’s thermostat. Among the more than 30 books we have read on this topic, none are better than Goreham’s “Climatism: Science, Common Sense and the 21st Century” (2010), and “THE MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD OF CLIMATISM” (2012). Coining the word “Climatism,” he showed in these volumes that climate fear mongers are akin to many other “isms,” much like socialism and communism, all intent on taking down the nation our forefathers began two and a half centuries ago.
Goreham followed those books with “Outside the Green Box: Rethinking Sustainable Development” (2017) in which he focused on educating the public about the left’s efforts to undermine our fine agriculture industry and the farmers who make our healthy food possible. He has been fortunate to have his writings promoted by World Net Daily and The Daily Caller among others.
Goreham explains that agriculture is under attack. Radical environmentalists wrongly label modern farming as unsustainable, and blame farming for polluting the planet and destroying the climate. These attacks are not supported by the facts. Today’s food is abundant and nutritious, a modern agricultural miracle, says Goreham.
According to UN data, land used for farming is now declining. The sum of cropland and pasture peaked in 2000 at 4.95 billion hectares which is roughly 12.3 billion acres. Goreham travels across the country explaining this truth, as well as describing how today’s farming in America is a modern miracle—sustainable, with farmers responsibly using pesticides and energy to protect our land, air, and water.
Goreham is also battling activists who want everyone to stop eating meat to supposedly combat climate change. Unfortunately, the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) supports the myth that eating less meat could reduce the “temperature of the planet.” The UNEP financed a study of meat consumption and health calling for meat consumption to be reduced to no more than one ounce per day which amounts to about one hamburger a week. This is unlikely to happen because, as nations become wealthier, their meat consumption increases. Data from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) state that from 1961 to 2013 world’s annual per-person consumption of meat, including fish, rose 88%.
Finally, Goreham has long battled against what we all know as our nation’s Chemophobia, a fear primarily of industrial-made chemicals. Synthetic pesticides used to control insects, rodents, and weeds and boost crop yields are a major concern for many people, but they should not be. The evidence shows that everyday exposure to synthetic pesticides is negligible for most of the population and that widespread worries are unfounded.
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) analyzes samples from thousands of foods each year to detect synthetic pesticide residues. Laboratory methods detect residues down to low parts-per-billion levels. In 2016, the USDA collected and tested 10,365 samples from dairy products, fruits, and vegetables. Over 99.5 percent of the samples had synthetic pesticide levels below limits set by the EPA.
Goreham explains that U.S. and European pesticide safety levels are set at extremely low levels of exposure, typically 100 times below the “no observed adverse effect level” found in laboratory experiments with animals. Limits for pesticides in water are yet hundreds of times lower than food-limit levels. This is one of the many topics Steve Goreham writes and lectures about in his effort to combat the false attacks continuously launched by leftist environmental zealots.
