Monstanto vs the world – How we will win the food war

http://rinf.com/alt-news/sicence-technology/monstanto-vs-the-world-how-we-will-win-the-food-war/

The big idea that industrial producers in the food system want you to believe is that only they can produce enough for the future population (Peekhaus 2010). Thus non-industrial systems of farming, such as all those which use agroecological methods, or SRI, or are localised and family-oriented, or which use organic methods, or non-GMO seeds, cannot feed the world.

Note: The defunct and self serving solution of Bill Gates et al is more psyhcopathic corporatism of the food supply.

Monsanto, Dupont Seeds Won’t Solve Hunger, Howard Buffett Says

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2011-10-12/monsanto-dupont-seeds-won-t-solve-hunger-howard-buffett-says

Small farmers in Africa and elsewhere often lack the income and training to buy and use biotech seeds and may become skeptical of technology if new products are used improperly, the 56-year-old son of billionaire Warren Buffett said. Howard Buffett, a board member of his father’s company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc

“Stop thinking that what we know how to do is going to work for somebody else,” Buffett said. “We need to be intelligent enough and humble enough to admit that we don’t know everything and that we certainly don’t know some things in other parts of the world that need to happen.”

Buffett, a Berkshire director since 1993, is an ambassador against hunger for the United Nations World Food Program and runs the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, which aids subsistence farming. His father once said that Howard, who farms land in Nebraska and South Africa, “would rather spend an evening on a tractor in the field than on a date with Angelina Jolie.”
