The Politics Of Fear!
How to start a meme! This disgusting piece of BBC crap kicks off a new "bend them and break them" topic. Since the mileage, not acknowledged here, in global warming is weakening badly we need to throw up a new scare. Furthermore we can quietly tack it onto the AGW industry and utilise the logistical support, already in place, to up the ante and create another branch of the fear factory. It gets even smarter than that. We can plant the subtle seed of doubt in the resistance to GM foods. Here "might" be a magic bullet to slay starvation in Africa and the world. Genetically modified "Creutz Jakob" material to add to the obesity already prevalent in the Western Clown fed, globally processed muck shovelled down the throats of the enslaved trailer trash of Western sheep pens. That's never reached the dispossessed, ever.
Of course the profiteering and further dominant control of sustenance has never yet reached the starving billions we are wringing our corporate and greedy hands over. This bollocks is nothing to do with a future world without enough food. It's about scaring us into acceptance of the next control mechanism necessary to swell the coffers of the powerful and pat the heads of the subjugated.
It's an interesting exercise to compare energy and food. The richest oil fields and most productive prairies have never yet made the World's starving better off, have they? Not even when on their very doorstep. This film seems innocuous and rather philanthropic. It isn't and the chatterati twit fronting it, giggling like a big girl, hasn't a clue. He just toes the leftie line and pockets the blood money we have to pay.
