We could end world hunger right now, but the eco-fascists won’t allow it


WE’VE all been bombarded daily with horror stories about how food prices are being forced up and hundreds of millions of the world’s poorest risk starvation because the Russian invasion of Ukraine has prevented exports of grain and sunflower oil.

Well, let me give you some figures – figures our politicians, the supine BBC, Channel 4 News and the other mainstream media and prostitute experts-for-sale don’t want to mention.  

They don’t mention these figures because they undermine the disastrous global-warming, climate-catastrophist, net-zero policies being forced on us by our rulers. 

The US produces about 384million metric tonnes of corn each year and around 50million tonnes of wheat. Ukraine produces about 38million tonnes of corn each year and around 33million tonnes of wheat. Around 20million tonnes of Ukraine’s wheat is exported each year. 

Conclusion 1: The US produces an awful lot more food than Ukraine. 

But let’s look at how all the US’s corn and wheat is actually used. Around a third of it – that’s 128million tonnes – is used to make biofuels rather than being used for human consumption. 

I haven’t been able to find out how much of the US’s wheat is used for biofuels, but I did discover that in the European Union, 12million tonnes of grain, including wheat and maize, is turned into ethanol – around seven per cent of the bloc’s production. 

Please also note that just in the EU, 3.5million tonnes of palm oil is used to make biodiesel. That’s almost the amount of sunflower oil coming out of Ukraine and Russia combined. 

Conclusion 2: We’re burning food rather than using it to feed people 

The simple solution:You probably noticed that last year the petrol you buy changed from something called E5 to E10. E5 petrol contains five per cent biofuel and E10 contains ten per cent. 

According to calculations done by real scientists at Princeton University in the US, (not the scientists-for-sale we see continually being interviewed by the mainstream media), if the US and Europe were to decrease their use of ethanol made from grain by 50 per cent – that would mean just moving back from E10 petrol to E5 petrol – they would effectively replace all of Ukraine’s exports of grain.

If our rulers were to completely scrap the biofuel mandates they have imposed on us, the world would be drowning in food and food prices would collapse. Then the only reason for hungry people would be the incompetence, stupidity, venality, corruption and greed of African, Arab and Asian kleptocrats.

When the EU first mandated that 2.5 per cent of all fuel sold in the EU should be made from biofuels, worldwide food prices shot up and the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food called this ‘a crime against humanity’. 

We’re now at ten per cent biofuels and, if I have understood correctly, following new climate change legislation passed in the US last week, the biofuel content of petrol is to be increased even further. This will mean diverting more potential food to fuel production at a time of world food shortages and rocketing food prices. 

This is madness. But it gets worse. Biofuels are less efficient than fossil fuels – you get fewer miles/kilometres per litre/gallon and they damage car engines more than fossil fuels. Moreover, the huge amounts of energy required to produce biofuels mean that they are probably more environmentally damaging than fossil fuels. 

Scrapping the biofuels mandates in the US and EU isn’t something that would take years or months to implement. It could be done this week and the results – more food availability and falling food prices – would happen immediately. 

So why won’t our rulers do this? Moreover, why are they moving in the opposite direction – by pushing ever more food into fuel production? 

It could just be utter incompetence. Or it could be the classic reaction of politicians and bureaucracies – the more evidence emerges that their policies are misguided, the more they double down on those policies.  

We’ve seen that with the vaccines for the Chinese lab-leaked plague – the more evidence we have of the vaccines’ ineffectiveness and increasing numbers of people harmed by them, the more our rulers push for us to take ever more booster shots. 

However, there’s a third possibility posited by conspiracy theorists – that our rulers are acting together to deliberately restrict food production, push up food prices and impoverish us all as a means of increasing their control over us. 

Remember, most political movements such as Leftism and Black Lives Matter, eco-campaigning and Extinction Rebellion, are just greed and fascism dressed up as empathy. They pretend to want to help people, but are actually interested only in increasing their own wealth and power over us. 

You can choose which of the three possibilities – incompetence, doubling down on misguided policies or conspiracy against us – you believe is the most credible explanation.
