Winning the Battle Against World Hunger

by | Nov 23, 2021 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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.


Steve Goreham will join us on The Other Side of the Story this Saturday and Sunday, the 27th and 28th of November at 11 AM ET, with an encore at 8 PM. Listen on iHeart Radio, our world-class media player, or our free apps on AppleAndroid, or Alexa. Each episode goes to major podcast networks early in the week and can be heard on-demand anywhere in the world.

I agree that the manic environmentalists go too far with demonizing our agricultural activities. What about the charges that current farming practices destroy the biome of soils, causing lower levels of oxygen being produced by the microscopic life living in the soil? I’ve wondered whether Bill Gates is buying up millions of acres of farmland, just to let it go fallow. Why is he buying up farm and ranch land? Thanks

As much as I appreciate the work this author has done to debunk climate change, I have to agree with the environmentalists that mono-crop farming is not sustainable. All farmers MUST reassess current modern farming practices and learn about regenerative farming, which is the future.

Covid and Your Cells Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vincent Giampapa

Do you give any weight to the theory that the spike protein of the virus contains a prion-like domain? Is there any way to detox at a cellular level after receiving the Covid19 vaccine? In theory, would taking an anti-viral prior to the covid vaccine help limit the damage the spike protein might do my the veins/heart? Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vincent Giampapa join us in a unique setting on The Voice of a Nation…

The Reckoning

The Reckoning

The global elite decided to build and use Covid-19 to weaken the Western World. These people were perfectly happy to kill off more than five million people to accomplish that goal, as they think the world has too many people in it anyway. Xi Jinping is going along only because the goals of the global elite currently align with the goals of Xi Jinping – which is to supplant the United States as the dominant power in the world…

Durham’s Timing Could Not Have Been Worse

The Russia-Collusion witch hunt was no ordinary crime. It was designed to bring down a sitting U.S. President by his political enemies. As such, the American people deserved to know at least some truth about that plot prior to the 2020 election. Durham’s timing is not to be applauded at all. We were robbed…

In one edict, Judge Jackson has violated the constitutional presumption of innocence, the first amendment guarantees of free speech, and the right to a speedy trial. A maxim of the law is “Justice delayed is justice denied.” Why?

Are Republicans Just Scared to Confront the Obamunists?

Are Republicans Just Scared to Confront the Obamunists?

Barack Hussein Obama certainly isn’t some kind of ‘senior statesman’ to be revered by Americans. He is a communist ideologue bound and determined to bring America down to her knees, and then replace America with a communist regime with himself and other select ruling oligarchs calling all the shots. “Build Back Better” anyone?

How Marxism Corrupts the Spirit and Soul Absolutely

How Marxism Corrupts the Spirit and Soul Absolutely

From the papal meetings with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden, one could only hope for at least a repetition of what Jesus said: “Go and sin no more.” However, Marxism is Marxism. And in this case, the spiritual leader said essentially by his actions: “You are good Catholics! Go get communion whenever you want, even after the next 100,000 babies are aborted.”

Two Great Truths Will Determine China’s Future

Xi’s insatiable quest for personal power and recognition have put an insufferable burden on the Chinese people, and there are growing signs that his continuing imposition of bad policy on a suffering population has kindled resistance both within the CCP and the population at large. Is President Xi Jinping leading China to ruin?

Virginia Could Be Dracula’s Mortal Silver Bullet

Youngkin won because he addressed the issues that were most important to everyday Americans. These issues should be harnessed by every single GOP politician attempting to be elected. The GOP should not celebrate this crucial battle as if this is the end game. They must continue the same thread as if it did not happen, and be energized to…

Taking Over ‘Woke’ School Boards is an Excellent First Step

Democrats didn’t understand how the Virginia electorate had caught on to their Marxist nonsense, and Terry became the Storm Petrel warning Democrats of their coming demise. They are indoctrinating little children with Marxist theology by subterfuge and lies, and continuing to claim the shocking idea that parents have no business telling “experts” how to run their kids’ education…
