Ecology of Peace RH factual reality: 1. Earth is not flat; 2. Resources are finite; 3. When humans breed or consume above ecological carrying capacity limits, it results in resource conflict; 4. If individuals, families, tribes, races, religions, and/or nations want to reduce class, racial and/or religious local, national and international resource war conflict; they should cooperate & sign their responsible freedom oaths; to implement Ecology of Peace Scientific and Cultural Law as international law; to require all citizens of all races, religions and nations to breed and consume below ecological carrying capacity limits.

UN: Population Brief: Fertility & Third World || What is Peak Food?

[Svalbard Seven Samurai :: Seed Armigideon Lohengrin] AGRI-WARFARE: Eating Fossil Fuels, by Dale Allen Pfeiffer, From the Wilderness

The World Order rules through a simple technique, Divide and Conquer (Divide et impera). Every natural or unnatural division among people, every occasion for hatred or greed, is exploited and exacerbated to the limit. The polarization of racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. is accelerated by a flood of government decrees, originating in foundation "studies", which are designed solely to set American against American. Only in this way can the World Order maintain its iron grip on the daily lives of the people.

The World Order adopted the Hegelian dialectic, the dialectic of materialism, which regards the World as Power, and the World as Reality. It denies all other powers and all other realities. It functions on the principle of thesis, antithesis and a synthesis which results when the thesis and antithesis are thrown against each other for a predetermined outcome. Thus the World Order organizes and finances Jewish groups; it then organizes and finances anti-Jewish groups; it organizes Communist groups; it then organizes and finances anti-Communist groups. It is not necessary for the Order to throw these groups against each other; they seek each other out like heat-seeking missiles, and try to destroy each other. By controlling the size and resources of each group, the World Order can always predetermine the outcome.

A distinguishing trait of a member of the World Order, although it may not be admitted, is that he does not believe in anything but the World Order. Another distinguishing trait is his absolute contempt for anyone who actually believes in the tenets of Communism, Zionism, Christianity, or any national, religious or fraternal group, although the Order has members in controlling positions in all of these groups. If you are a sincere Christian, Zionist or Moslem, the World Order regards you as a moron unworthy of respect. You can and will be used, but you will never be respected. -- Eustice Mullins' The World Order - Our Secret Rulers

What would it take to accelerate fertility decline in the least developed countries?

March 25, 2009 | Optimum Population Trust

Fast population growth, fueled by high fertility, hinders the reduction of poverty and the achievement of other internationally agreed development goals. Lack of Government commitment is at the root of low contraceptive prevalence. Among the 17 least developed countries with very low recent levels of modern contraceptive use, just five considered fertility to be too high in 1985 and just 8 had policies to reduce fertility by 1995
~ UN Population Division Policy Brief ~

The least developed countries as a group and in their majority are lagging behind in the transition to low fertility and have rapidly growing populations.

  • Lack of access to family planning and, in particular, to modern methods of contraception is a major cause of the persistence of high fertility as indicated by the high levels of unmet need for family planning prevalent in most least developed
    countries having the requisite data.

  • Expansion of access to family planning requires government commitment and effective action to disseminate information about contraceptive methods and the benefits of smaller families.

  • Strengthening and expanding family planning services requires adequate funding and access to supplies. Increases in donor funding for family planning would make a major contribution in this regard given that, since the mid-1990s, most least developed countries have experienced a per capita decrease in donor funding for family planning.

  • Investments in family planning are cost effective because of the strong synergistic effects of longer inter-birth intervals and lower fertility with other
    development goals. For every dollar spent in family planning, between 2 and 6 dollars can be saved in interventions aimed at achieving other development goals.

What’s Peak Food?

Peak Food is the moment in time when per capita availability of food in the world reaches a maximum and then begins to decline. As world reserve food stocks have now fallen to dangerous levels, and increased prices have failed to push up food production, it seems that Peak Food is here. When reserve stocks disappear, panic and hoarding will clear the shelves, adding to the problem.

But worse is to come as food production goes into serious and sudden decline for the following reasons:
  • climate change
  • oil and gas shortages
  • cropland losses
  • crops used for ethanol and biodiesel
  • competition for water
  • falling fish stocks
  • population increases with millions in Asia eating more meat so needing more land per person when there is less.

Two of these factors - climate change and oil and gas shortages - could independently cause catastrophic reductions in world food supplies. But if they were to happen at the same time there could be world-wide famine.

The West is especially vulnerable because we have now become dependent on unreliable countries such as Russia, Venezuela, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and Iran for our food, just as surely as if the food was grown there. This is because our food production system has become totally dependent on oil to power the machines and trucks and to make the pesticides. Natural gas provides the nitrogen fertiliser that is responsible for about 40% of our grain yield. If we have reduction in supplies that lasts for more then a few months, food supply would be bound to fall. No wonder that governments worry about oil security.

The U.S. already imports 60% of its oil, and a 2006 policy document from the European commission warned that reliance on imports is expected to increase from 82% to 93% by 2030 for oil and 57% to 84% for gas. This on its own would be alarming enough, but many oil experts are now saying that oil production will soon decline just at the time when demand from developing countries like China and India is rocketing. Thus, any shortage of oil that lasts for more than a few months would cause chaos and hunger in the West.

War in the Middle East, terrorist activity or the establishment of Islamic fundamentalist governments in important countries like Saudi Arabia are just some of the events that could trigger a crisis.

Fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel made from crops are seen by many politicians as one answer to oil insecurity, but to produce these crops is taking millions of acres of good land out of food production.

Climate change is already causing droughts, floods and other extreme weather events that are reducing yields in affected areas. Should there be large yield reductions in several parts of the world at the same time, or for more then one year running we all will be in grave danger because those world carry-over food stocks, that are supposed to cushion us from a bad harvest, are now dangerously low and would be quickly used up in a crisis.

Unbelievably, the world is losing over 20 million acres of productive land each year due to desertification, salination and paving over for urban sprawl, industry and roads etc.

The various threats to our food supplies are discussed in more detail in regular posts and news items under various categories.

My book, Famine in the West, shows not only how serious things could get, but also how we could use innovation and the abundant energy we receive each day from the sun to feed the 8 billion people of 2025.
