Agricultural Revolution Needed.

Earth’s population will grow by 25 percent, to more than nine billion, by 2050 (Deutsche Welle, January 20, 2014). With this increase will come a far greater need for food. “Experts assume that global food production must increase by 70 percent in order to meet the world’s changing dietary habits” (ibid.). “What hasn’t been sufficiently discussed is that we cannot achieve this type of expansion or production… At least not under the current conditions,” noted the executive director of the UN Environment Program. “Today, agriculture already uses two-thirds of the global water supply. In the past 100 years, we have dried out 50 percent of all the wetlands in the name of progress” (ibid.). Experts recommend more fertilizer and genetic modification in order to boost food production to the level needed—ultimately, “nothing short of a revolution in agriculture” (ibid.). Read More »

South Africa’s Newest Political Party.

“A new party that will defend gays and lesbians against violence and persecution will stand in South Africa’s elections this year” (Agence France-Presse, February 1, 2014). Its aim is to protect lesbian women against protective or corrective rape, and reduce bullying against boys “thought to be” homosexual. South African homosexuals “are regularly killed because of their lifestyle” (ibid.). Read More »

“Breathtaking” EU-wide Corruption!

A European Union study on governmental corruption revealed that it costs the union over €120 billion annually (BBC, February 3, 2014). “In Croatia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania and Greece, between 6% and 29% of respondents said they had been asked for a bribe, or had been expected to pay one, in the past 12 months. There were also high levels of bribery in Poland (15%), Slovakia (14%) and Hungary (13%),” often in healthcare (ibid.). Reasons cited for the high corruption rates included: “existing rules on conflicts of interest are inadequately enforced,” and “quality of corruption investigations varies widely across the EU” (ibid.). There was no mention of poor character and dishonesty in elected officials. Read More »

Grammy Awards Send a Message.

Last Sunday in Los Angeles, the most coveted music awards were doled out at an awards extravaganza where no holds were barred by the performers. This year’s program boasted sultry sex scenes, satanic occult imagery, and even a mass wedding including many homosexual couples and presided over by a female hip-hop star. “Same Love,” the wildly popular hip-hop song of the year about homosexual love was performed throughout the brief wedding ceremony (LATimes, January 27, 2014; Telegraph, January 27, 2014; Telegraph, January 27, 2014).

Chinese Investors Pushed Abroad.

Chinese real estate investors are now flocking primarily to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. (China Daily, January 28, 2014). “Investment and education are the main drivers of Chinese migration… The expanding number of Chinese emigrants [nearly 50 million now] is creating business opportunities for a range of industries” (ibid.). With new internal limits on property purchasing within China, and rising prices, investors are being pushed beyond the borders of their own nation (ibid.). Read More »

New Technology Leaves the U.S. Behind.

“China has tested a ‘hypersonic’ aircraft which is so fast that it could render the defence systems of every nation on Earth obsolete and reset the global calculations of nuclear diplomacy” (The Times, January 16, 2014). Identifying the sad irony of the situation, three Republican House Armed Services Committee members released the statement: “While round after round of defence cuts have knocked America’s technological advantage on its back, the Chinese and other competitor nations push towards military parity with the US. In some cases, as in this one, they appear to be leaping ahead of us” (ibid.). Read More »
