Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) became the law of the land, millions of Mexicans have joined the ranks of the hungry. Malnutrition is highest among the country’s farm families, who used to produce enough food to feed the nation.
As the blood-spattered violence of the drug war takes over the headlines, many Mexican men, women, and children confront the slow and silent violence of starvation. The latest reports show that the number of people living in “food poverty” (the inability to purchase the basic food basket) rose from 18 million in 2008 to 20 million by late 2010.
About one-fifth of Mexican children currently suffer from malnutrition. An innovative measurement applied by the National Institute for Nutrition registers a daily count of 728,909 malnourished children under five for October 18, 2011. Government statistics report that 25 percent of the population does not have access to basic food.
In September, the militaries of the East African Community held joint exercises with AFRICOM, the U.S. Africa Command. Such exercises with American forces have become commonplace. The U.S. Defence Department is busily training the militaries of Mali, Chad, Niger, Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Gabon, Zambia, Uganda, Senegal, Mozambique, Ghana, Malawi and Mauretania. ECOWAS, the Economic Community of West African States, is considering asking the U.S. navy to help it out with its pirate problem. Most of the militaries of the African Union already communicate with American command-and-control equipment, requiring U.S. advisors. The overlapping entanglements have allowed the U.S. military to achieve deep penetration of the armed forces of most African nations.
Otherwise known as “chemtrails”.
There’s a blatant scientific error on page 7, where the author “derives” that we must reduce carbon emissions by 80%. He ignores the impact of increased CO2 concentration on plant growth. Of course if they keep spraying aluminum in the atmosphere plant growth will be severely stunted, especially in the rainforests, where the soil is highly acidic and thus sensitive to aluminum poisoning. It would be hugely ironic if the net impact of chemtrails was to increase CO2 equilibrium concentrations.
An 80% reduction in carbon emissions translates to maybe a 50% reduction in energy consumption in the short term, maybe 70% long term. Ok, if food was transported from california to missouri on bicycles that might not be much of a problem. If people heated their homes with geothermal heat pumps and solar collectors maybe they could get by with an indoor temperature of 50 degrees over the winter months. People could adapt to this even if there was no good science behind it. What they can’t adapt to is the massive contamination of water and agricultural land with aluminum.
