Private ‘philanthropic’ foundations join government agencies in funding anti-technology NGOs. Underwriting anti-life causes not only misses an opportunity to promote good living, it requires true philanthropies to expend resources to counteract the bad actors. (Part I was yesterday)
It’s easy to go organic if you have abundant food and money, don’t have the insects and crop diseases that plague African farmers on constant massive levels, and don’t live with locusts that create catastrophic conditions every few decades.
Modern pesticides can save billions of dollars of crops every year and stop locusts before they can swarm by the tens of billions. Bioengineered crops can feed more people from less land with less water with greater resistance to insects–and with less need for chemical pesticides (natural or manmade). This wonderful technology does not matter to those who demand nothing but organic for Africa.…

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization, anti-development banks, the Agency for International Development (USAID), NGOs (non-government organizations), and other eco-imperialists use their money, power, and control over trade and lending to keep millions of families from having access to reliable, affordable energy; disease-preventing pesticides and spatial insect repellents; and modern agricultural technologies. They perpetuate Third World poverty, disease, and death.
These anti-human actions are excused and even praised for safeguarding scenic areas, habitats, and wildlife from fossil fuel-driven climate change, even as they are destroyed by wind turbines, solar panels, biofuel plantations, and expanded mining for the metals and minerals that those technologies require.…
Editor Note: This post completes a three-part series with Part I on Biofuels and Solar and Part II on Wind Turbines.
“The world cannot afford to let delusion, dishonesty, ideology, or deliberate deception drive public policies that will determine our future jobs, prosperity, living standards, and civilization. What Salt Lake City’s UN conference discussed has nothing to do with real sustainability, resource conservation or recycling.”
“UN-supported policies are unjust, inhumane, eco-imperialist and lethal…. [T]he climate change-sustainability agenda that is being advanced by UN and other activists and bureaucrats is eco-fascist, totalitarian and racist.”
Yet another educational exercise for UN conference attendees would be to calculate the land, energy and raw materials required to manufacture and install the batteries necessary to make renewable energy dispatchable. In the process, they would need to add in the raw material requirements for batteries required to replace all the world’s cars, trucks and buses with electric vehicles – and recharge them every few hours.…
