Nuclear meltdown, acid rain, ocean acidification, sea level rise, famine, obesity, drought, megastorms, floods, extreme weather, rain-forest destruction, species extinction…
These are just some of the bogus scares the UN and activists use to keep the masses in a state of panic. The more, the better. Hardly a day goes by without the media fretting about at least one or more of the above. And the list just keeps growing.
In the headlines over the last few days in Germany and Europe are two new topics: Water shortage and food-wastage.
New Crisis No. 1: Global water shortage
One we hear a lot about is the growing water consumption crisis, which Die Welt reports on here. Though it’s not new, the tone is getting ever shriller. Billions are now threatened. According to Die Welt:
‘The demand for water is increasing just at a time when climate change is threatening its availability,’ says the latest UN World Water Report.”
More than 20,000 experts from over 100 countries have gathered in Marseilles for a week-long conference on potable water. Is it really necessary to have 20,000 experts just to talk about water? Obviously there are lots of people who can’t find regular worthwhile jobs.
Not surprisingly, one of the big culprits threatening the water supply is meat production, so they tell us. According to Die Welt:
Foremost the manufacture of animal feed is, according to the data, very water intensive. Up to 15 thousand litres of water are needed to produce a sole kilogram of meat. Globally about 70 percent of fresh water is consumed for the manufacture of food.”
Note how all of this points to one direction: regulating human food consumption. And note how it fits in nicely with the scheme of eco-eugenicist Matthew Liao who proposes genetically engineering people to shrink them down in size. The UN creates the bogus crisis in order to legitimize the grand experiment.
The 700-page UN report called “Managing water under uncertainty and risk” was released at the start of the Marseilles conference amid much media buzz. H2O certificate trading anyone?
New Crisis No. 2: Naughty Germans throw away too much food!
The latest crisis in Germany is food wastage. According to the TAZ:
A German citizen throws away 81.6 kilograms of food every year. This is what a study from the University of Stuttgart shows. Federal Minister of Agriculture Ilse Aigner (CSU) will present it Tuesday, reports Die Welt.”
For Aigner, Germans throwing away so much food simply takes the cake! Such waste can no longer be tolerated. So what does she propose to do about it? Aigner plans a campaign to educate the public so that they learn that the best-before-date printed on food labels does not necessarily mean the food is no longer fit for consumption once it expires. Never mind if the milk smells a little sour or if the bread is a little moldy – just eat it!
TAZ writes that the campaign:
…will prevent food being thrown into the garbage even though it can still be eaten.”
Minister Aigner clearly has nothing to do. So she decides to pester the private consumers and up-bring them on food and how to eat…real government intrusion…the nanny state getting ready to spoon-feed its citizens.
What business does the government have here? Once people buy food at the supermarket, it becomes their own private property. And what they do with it is nobody else’s business. What’s next? Bureaucrats rummaging though your rubbish looking for food scraps? The TAZ writes:
The authors of the study say that about two thirds of the food that is thrown out could be avoided. Every year about 11 million tonnes of food ends up in the garbage. 61 comes from private households, 17 Prozent from institutions like restaurants, schools and cafeterias, 17% from industry. The remaining 5% from retailers.”
What’s the underlying message behind the food wastage crisis? They are trying to tell us that food is too cheap! Get ready for higher food prices – especially meat.
