Calorie Counting

     The rise of a tolerable level of civilization – i.e., a state of society in which our lives aren’t characterized by constant predation against one another – is largely due to advances in agricultural production. Indeed, a case could be made for the proposition that until the available calories per capita passed about 1500 per day, internecine struggle would be the order of business for all of us. The majority of us would be poor in the most basic sense: unable to feed ourselves enough. That creates incentives for mutual predation of the worst sort: killing your neighbor so that what he would have eaten will become yours.

     So of course, they who seek power over the rest of us have made the elimination of agricultural abundance one of their principal objectives:

     Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry warned Wednesday that the world can’t tackle climate change without first addressing the agriculture sector’s emissions.

     Kerry lamented that agriculture production alone creates 33% of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions, arguing that reducing those emissions must be “front and center” in the quest to defeat global warming, during remarks Wednesday morning at the Department of Agriculture’s AIM for Climate Summit. The former secretary of state also touted so-called climate smart agriculture as a potential solution.

     “A lot of people have no clue that agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world,” he said during his keynote address. “We can’t get to net-zero, we don’t get this job done unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution. So all of us understand here the depths of this mission.”

     Kerry went on to talk about “innovation” and “solutions.” Every word of it was completely insincere. The Left, of which he’s a card-carrying member, is determined to reduce global food supplies. Undisputed control of the world food supply would constitute the ultimate lever over the people of the world. “Obey or starve” is a command with real teeth.

     Kerry’s own drive for personal importance is completely compatible with this quest. If he can get this unprecedented lever into the hands of his fellows, it will cement his place among the elite. Being one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, he knows he wouldn’t miss any meals.

     The governments of Ireland and the Netherlands have already gone to war against their nations’ agricultural sectors. Both have ordered the mass slaughter of cows. In Holland, the government has proposed to seize many thousands of acres of farmland, specifically to take it out of production. In other nations, governments have issued edicts that limit or forbid the use of “green revolution” fertilizers and pesticides. In every case of this sort, the rationale is “to combat climate change:” the all-purpose justification for infringement on human freedom, especially in the economic sphere.

     Meanwhile, the USDA wants you to register your backyard garden. Nothing threatening about that, really. It’s just their program for producing “a more diverse and resilient local food system to empowering communities to address issues like nutrition access and climate change.” We gun nuts know that after registration comes confiscation. What do you suppose would follow the registration of private gardens?

     Suddenly all those fires and other disasters at food-processing plants begin to assume a rather ominous shape, haven’t they? But at least the prevalence of obesity among the First World’s “poor” wouldn’t be a problem afterward, would it? Myself, the subject has left me feeling a bit peckish. Perhaps I’ll hit the fridge. What’s left over from last night, Sweetie?

    Elections won’t rid society of this growing cancer.

    Most of us have been charitable enough to believe that these people are misguided, mistaken, or deluded by bad science.


    This is evil. The goofballs who play church of satan, or mess with black magic are deluded. The climate totalitarians are the Adversary’s children. They all need an appointment with Doctor Lampost, and Nurse Roap.

    The Global Warming grift is the biggest grift in history.  A lot of people, organizations and countries intend to take our wealth and our power.  Everyone of our politicians and talking heads advocating for the Global Warming grift are traitors to the country and the people and should be treated as such.

    Ask him when he plans on shutting down the volcanos of the world. When is he going to put a cork in the oil that seeps out of bottom of the ocean? When is he going to switch to an all electric jet to carry him around the world?
