The Green New Famine

Samantha Power, the progressive UN Ambassador during the Obama era now leads the US Agency for International Development under President Biden. On ABC News This week she stated:

“Fertilizer shortages are real now because Russia is a big exporter of fertilizer. And even though fertilizer is not sanctioned, less fertilizer is coming out of Russia,” 

she went on:

“As a result, we’re working with countries to think about natural solutions like manure and compost. And this may hasten transitions that would have been in the interest of farmers to make eventually anyway.”

She’s an idiot. Quite simply there is not enough natural nitrogen available to maintain current global food production. Manure and compost won’t cut it. We must use fossil fuel processes to generate sufficient to meet global farmings needs.

We have already had a preview of what will happen under Power’s suggested course of action. The consequences of a world without fertilizer will be borne by millions in poor countries across the world.

Sri Lanka made a sudden change from chemical fertilizers to manure and compost last year. How did that work out?

Sri Lanka is the future.
