UN: World lacks enough food, fuel as population soars  

‘To achieve sustainability, a transformation of the global economy is required’

cites report

LONDON: The world is running out of time to make sure there is enough food, water and energy to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population and to avoid sending up to 3 billion people into poverty, a U.N. report warned on Monday.

As the world’s population looks set to grow to nearly 9 billion by 2040 from 7 billion now, and the number of middle-class consumers increases by 3 billion over the next 20 years, the demand for resources will rise exponentially.

Even by 2030, the world will need at least 50 percent more food, 45 percent more energy and 30 percent more water, according to U.N. estimates, at a time when a changing environment is creating new limits to supply.

Thought I would let you take a look at this headline before I get started.  I’m going to cry out again for the government to help farmers!  Give them more land, money to keep our country going. Lot’s of money being spent on ridiculous things such as:

  • Almost a decade ago, the federal government dropped $100 million for an Earth-monitoring satellite that never made it into space. Today it sits in a closet in Maryland.

Cost to taxpayers for storing it: $1 million a year. And that’s just what’s hiding in one closet. Who knows what’s in the rest of them? Reader’s Digest decided to find out.

By Ryan Grim with Joseph K. Vetter from Reader’s Digest January 2008

The Government is wasting your tax dollars.

  • The Medicare program pays as much as eight times the cost that other federal agencies pay for the same drugs and medical supplies.
  • The federal government cannot account for $24.5 billion spent in 2003.
  • The federal government spends $23 billion annually on special interest pork projects such as grants to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or funds to combat teenage “goth” culture in Blue Springs, Missouri.
  • The Defense Department wasted $100 million on unused flight tickets, and never bothered to collect refunds even though the tickets were reimbursable.

And here is the one that goes along with what I am talking about. Heritage Foundation (By Brian Riedl)

  • The Conservation Reserve program pays farmers $2 billion annually to not farm their land.
  • Massive farm subsidies also go to several members of Congress, and celebrity “hobby farmers” such as David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Scottie Pippen, and former Enron CEO Ken Lay.

Is anybody besides me tired of this government bureaucracy?  Something seriously needs to be done.  Call your congress person.  Lobby your rights to be heard.  We need our farmers!  Don’t let them become extinct.
