We very definitely need another agricultural green revolturalion to help stave off the disastrous problems that are approching us as the earth continues to heat up, water becomes more scarce, and the population continues to grow and grow and grow.

The twentieth century is remarkable for bloodshed and lives lost through the madness of men. Stalin and Mao created environmental ruin and starved around 40 million individuals. The Black Book of Communism details another 70 million lives lost through the action of Soviet “cooperatives,” all in peacetime.
