Next Up On Cult Of Climastrology List: Creating A National Food Strategy

Why do most policy proposals and such from the Cult always result in more Government control over our lives and the economy? Why do they restrict out choice and freedom? Anyhow, who’s this “we” stuff?

Theresa Villiers : If we really want to fight climate change we need a national food strategy

When it comes to food, we are surrounded by an abundance that our ancestors could only have dreamed of.

One of my new colleagues at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) spoke about a farmer who described how, when he was a boy in the 1940s, his father had wept as he tore out his hedges to put more land under the plough as his contribution to the heroic efforts that fed this country.

Like millions who know hunger around the world today, their generation valued food as something so precious it should never be wasted.

Today, our food and drink sector employs one in eight of us, contributing more than £122bn to the UK economy, and exporting over £22.6bn of high-quality, high-welfare products prized by over 200 countries worldwide.

Yet amid such abundance, something has gone very wrong. As individuals, our demise is more likely to be hastened by our own poor food choices than the infectious diseases that brought down our forefathers. As a society, we have seen how poor land use can damage our country’s natural wealth. There is also growing concern about the amount of food which is wasted.

Somehow, this is all related to man-caused climate change, you know. Because the CoC interjects itself into everything. Because it isn’t about science, but politics

There has never been a better time for fresh thinking about the whole food system, from field to fork. That is why we have launched the first major review in 75 years, ably led by entrepreneur Henry Dimbleby, to inform a national food strategy that will guide efforts across government.

Huh. More government

Scientists’ warnings, such as the recent devastating reports from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, could not be clearer. Only a few months ago we saw the results of the most comprehensive assessment yet of the state of nature. It told us that up to a million species are facing extinction. In my lifetime, populations of animals, on average, have more than halved – a mere blink of an eye in evolutionary terms. This is not just a biodiversity issue; it is a human issue.

We have no choice but to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss, or risk not only losing untold wonders of the natural world, but plunging whole regions into desperate poverty. Central to that is the need to rethink our relationship to land-use.

How’d Theresa Villiers, secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs, get there? Because all Warmists are nuts, and they have to drag it into everything.

I want to ensure that our food system at home complements our efforts to ensure sustainable food security for the 9 billion people who will share this planet by 2030. This country can lead the way as we head into a year of international negotiations that will define global ambition for biodiversity, climate change, and our oceans.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Government telling you what you can eat and when, limiting what you can eat, telling farmers what they can grow. Surprise? You used to get gubmint officials advocating for mission creep for the sake of mission creep. Now they do it for Hotcoldwetdry.

    This article goes to the true fears of the left. OVERPOPULATION. AGW has always been about Population control. Its why Clinton did NOTHING about the aids epidemic in Africa. Its why the world is doing nothing about Ebola in Africa. The massive famines in Rhodesia….the list is endless.

  2. Carl says:

    How can the UK supply food to over 200 countries when there are only 195 countries in the world? Just saying

  3. John says:

    Trump still wants to buy Greenland
    He thinks that global warming is real now

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      Outstanding choice, Buying Greenland. Just think of all that Prime Real estate when all the ice melts. 200 IQ outwitting everyone.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        I have no objection with trump inc buying Greenland, if they can pull it off. Just so long as they don’t use taxpayer money.

        • formwiz says:

          Well, of course, nitwit thinks this is a corporate issue when it’s good foreign policy.

          Aside from the geopolitical and strategic advantages, it has a wealth of hydrocarbons, rare earths, and abundant fisheries.

          And best of all, the people there are white.

          Fortunately, this country was blessed with visionaries and not pedantic whiners like the bunny suit.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            The baboon suit needs to answer why Denmark would sell Greenland, since it’s so valuable.

            How many trillions of US taxpayer money would the nitwit be willing to spend?

      • formwiz says:

        It’s fine as is, but I don’t expect ROLCONs to know that.

    • david7134 says:

      John,
      First there is no such thing as climate change secondary to man.

      Now, how do you equate the purchase of Greenland with the climate? The problem we have is that you, Jeff and the other liberals have little basic knowledge, you should have spent your time in jail reading.

      • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        Cut little johnny some slack.
        Electroshock therapy treatments since the day Trump won.
        Wanna read some funny shit? Go back and read the retard’s comments from October 2016.

        Bwaha! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        david,

        You are wrong, of course. There IS such a thing as global warming secondary to man. Your simple denials don’t refute all the evidence.

        You have yet to show your basic knowledge on any topic.

    • formwiz says:

      No, he’s just showing he’s got more brains than you (which, truth to tell, ain’t hard).

  4. Kye says:

    The best way to insure world wide famine is to put government in charge of food.

  5. We don’t need to speculate on how central control of food production turns out. We have actual examples. Most of the 100 million deaths from Communism in the 20th century were produced by starvation. This includes intentional government policy to starve and exterminate sub-populations as well as just plain bureaucratic incompetence.

    • david7134 says:

      More recent……Venezuela. Classic socialism.

      • Kye says:

        Notice how the pro left propaganda Media doesn’t mention Venezuela much any more? Why it’s almost as if they’re sweeping the total failure and collapse of Bernie The Red’s ideal system under the table.

        Trump 2020 Because the alternative is the end of Liberty!

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    This was in the UK.

    TEACH typed: “Government telling you what you can eat and when, limiting what you can eat, telling farmers what they can grow.”

    That’s not what she said. Anyway, in the US we already control what farmers grow with subsidies for milk, sugar, pork, wheat, sorghum, corn, beef, cranberries, walnuts, apples, oranges, lentils, beans, rice, potatoes etc etc

    • formwiz says:

      No, subsidies don’t control what’s grown. That’s why we have an abundance of everything.

      As always, you lie.
