HOW TO FEED MANKIND

What can „the West“ do?

„the West“ can start cultivating food in raised beds in towns. „the West“ can start community gardens and oblige every citizen to work their own 500m2 of land for a healthy exercise and locally grown food.

Now to the Southamerica: Brazil wants to turn all of the rain forest into agricultural land in an unsustainable „copy the west“ fashion.

This is a mistake – work more clever!

If you want, burn the bush, but leave the big trees standing! (no bulldozing! logging!)

Work with high tech countries to build 100% autonomous agricultural robots, that work around the big trees.

Because of the shade of the big trees, the soil keeps moisture better = more water/no drought = no erosion = better and more harvest.

This is exactly what the Chief Raoni Metuktire of the Kayapó tribe wants as well and anything else is stupid – because after a few years erosion (rain and wind) will destroy/wash away the agricultural land.

…and is reason an option to profits or not? Depends on the intensity of leadership-ignorance.

Wheat / Weizen harvest was „not good“ this year in Europe.

Climate change?

Policies change?

Crops change because of climate change and market?

There is no Infinite growth, but when are critical limits reached?

(current financial system needs growth / expansion – otherwise – it collapses)

Or has the concept of the Agrar-Chemical-Industrial-Complex FAILED.

The difference with soy bean farming nowadays and what the native south american did in the amazonas is: yes they also burned the forest – but they did not pull out every single tree!

Many trees survive bushfires and shoot green sprouds afterwards.

The ashes of these bushfires conserve nutritiens in the soil (adding animal and human manure and other biological wastes) resulting in a 2m thick TERRA PRETA.

TERRA PRETA is a over centuries-man-made very fertile soil. Usually layers of fertile soil in the amazonas jungle is NOT THAT THICK. 10-15 million native southamerican humans actually managed to do – what „modern“ society/high-tech-apes/science is failing: farming the land – and making it more fertile at the same time.

The wood-coal-ash in the soil giving it it’s dark color – conserves the nutritions in the soil over hunders of years!

OFCOURSE: IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO DRIVE A TRACTOR IN THE JUNGLE – THATS WHY THEY PULL OUT ALL THE TREES! BASICALLY DESTABILIZING THE ECOSYSTEM!

Thats how it works: EXPLOITATION! EXPLOITATION! EXPLOITATION!

Exploitation of humans, of nature, of resources – that’s what all the „profits“ come from.

It is not about „democracy“ or „freedom“ or „responsibility“ or „cultivating sustainability“. it is about EXPLOITATION ONLY.

EXPLOIT EXPLOIT UNTIL THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO EXPLOIT – BECAUSE IT COLLAPSED.

Because shit is not shit – it is nutrients for plants – but „modern“ people pay for it – to be flushed away with drinkable water…

it’s how you cultivate life and the ecosystem earth – that will bring your mankind’s children a future or not.

Lietaer - Efficiency vs Resiliance - TEDx 2009

Maybe „EFFICIENCY“ is not „EVERYTHING WE NEED“. Because if we ACTIVELY DESTROY BIODIVERSITY AND CREATE MONO CULTURES IN EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES AND ECOSYSTEMS – INSTABILITY INCREASES.

Who loves to increase the instability in the ecosystem mankind’s survival depends on?

The arms-industry – but only „short term“ – because even a CEOs of Lockheed Martin has to breathe air – drink water and eat something that is not killing him immediately.

In German:

„Der Deutsche Raiffeisenverband (DRV) geht in seiner Ernteschätzung für August nur noch von einer unterdurchschnittlichen Getreideernte in Höhe von knapp 44,9 Mio. t aus. Das erwartete Ergebnis liegt deutlich unter dem Wert des Vormonats von 47,5 Mio. t.

Grund für diese Anpassung sind die wesentlich niedriger geschätzten Hektarerträge bei allen Getreidearten. Das diesjährige Ergebnis bleibt um mehr als 8 Prozent hinter dem Vorjahreswert von 48,8 Mio. t zurück.“

… klappt wohl doch nicht so ganz mit dem Konzept der AgrarChemieIndustrie. Böden gehen Hops. Klimawandel tut sein übriges.

„Berlin, 16. Juli 2019. Die große Hitze in den vergangenen Wochen hat Spuren in den Getreidebeständen hinterlassen. Insbesondere in den ostdeutschen Bundesländern hat der Deutsche Raiffeisenverband (DRV) deshalb in weiten Teilen seine Ernteprognose spürbar gesenkt. In vielen Regionen leiden die Landwirte zum zweiten Mal in Folge unter den Auswirkungen eines sich abzeichnenden Klimawandels. Vor diesem Hintergrund fordert der DRV die Politik auf, zügig eine Weichenstellung für mehr Klimaschutz vorzunehmen. Darüber hinaus sind die landwirtschaftlichen Mitglieder der Raiffeisen-Genossenschaften auf leistungsfähige und bezahlbare Absicherungsinstrumente gegen Klimaschäden, wie zum Beispiel eine Dürreversicherung, angewiesen.“ (Quelle: https://www.raiffeisen.de/drv-fordert-mehr-engagement-im-klimaschutz)
