Davos Elites Discuss Impending 'Famines Around the World’ at WEF Event
World’s elite mulls over various Great Reset policies
Elite attendees at Davos have been discussing the global food crisis at the annual World Economic Forum as the head of the World Food Programme warned of “famines around the world.”
As the world’s elite mulls over various Great Reset policies at the annual World Economic Forum event in Davos, a popular topic of discussion at the globalist event is the world supply of food amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Many at the conference are openly expressing concern that the lack of exports leaving Ukraine could spell disaster for millions upon millions of people, with some experts warning that the effects of the crisis will not be limited to nations that are currently struggling to feed their populations.
For the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, food disruption isn’t a side-effect of hostilities, but an outright war object of Russia.
“Today, Russia’s artillery is bombarding grain warehouses in Ukraine – deliberately," the Commission head told those gathered at the conference.
"And Russian warships in the Black Sea are blockading Ukrainian ships full of wheat and sunflower seeds."
“On top of this, Russia is now hoarding its own food exports as a form of blackmail – holding back supplies to increase global prices, or trading wheat in exchange for political support,” she continued.
“This is: using hunger and grain to wield power.”
The EU tsar concluded by claiming that her transnational bloc has been doing absolutely everything it can to alleviate these issues, with von der Leyen saying that nations were increasing production and working with new tech to boost farming yields to make more food available.
However, this point seems to have been challenged by other attendees at the conference, with fears that the bloc’s hardline commitment to getting 25 per cent of all farmland to be organic as part of its green deal policies could end up stifling food production.
While organic food is generally prized by wealthier consumers and seen as an essential goal by soil quality advocates, it does tend to mean lower crop yields.
Commenting on this issue, J. Erik Fyrwald of Chinese funded agrichemical company Syngenta said that a possible solution to this problem could be to fuse the best of organic with other technologies to boost production.
“If organic can be improved and achieve [production] goals, fantastic,” Fyrwald said during a panel on food security.
“But what I see happening — the reality, because I talk to a lot of farmers and a lot of time on farms — is that, if you take the best from organic… and the best from conventional [farming]… you can dramatically increase the yields and you can drop the greenhouse gas emissions.”
Regardless of how food production can be pumped up though, David Beasley, the head of the World Food Programme, warned that those with power need to ensure more food becomes available or that the world would face devastating consequences.
Having previously warned of forthcoming catastrophe due to chronic food shortages, the former Republican Governor of South Carolina once again warned that famine, destabilization, and mass migration are being risked with the crisis, with millions of people from 43 different countries facing starvation as a result of the current problems.
