The G7 leaders have been debating the problem of African farming for quite a while. The issue surrounds the conflicts between the G7 climate change agenda and the need for Africa to develop fertilizer production to enhance their farming and crop yields.
As noted in a Reuters article from June, “the European Union is divided on how to help poorer nations fight a growing food crisis and address shortages of fertilisers caused by the war in Ukraine, with some fearing a plan to invest in plants in Africa would clash with EU green goals.” As the argument unfolded, “the EU Commission explicitly opposed” any effort to enhance African fertilizer development, “warning that supporting fertilizer production in developing nations would be inconsistent with the EU energy and environment policies.”
The energy development corporations, the source industry needed to create the components for nitrogen-based fertilizer, have been waiting to invest in African energy production pending the approval of western government decisions. Addressing the issue today, Joe Biden told the African Union the United States would send an emergency $2.5 billion in food crisis aid to offset the inability of Africa to feed itself.
In essence, instead of Western government policy supporting energy production in Africa that would lead to a greater farm yield, and by extension a greater level of food independence, the Biden administration would rather restrict energy/food development in Africa and send them food subsidies; because, climate change.
(White House) – […] President Biden announced an additional $2.5 billion in emergency aid and medium to long-term food security assistance for resilient African food systems and supply markets, which builds upon over $11 billion in U.S. humanitarian and food security assistance for this year alone. President Biden also launched a new strategic partnership on food security between the United States and the African Union.
Together, we will leverage the public and private sectors, along with multilateral development banks and international financial institutions to accelerate transformational investments in sustainable and resilient food systems to prevent food shocks before they happen.
The compounding impacts of the global pandemic, the growing pressures of the deepening climate crisis, high energy and fertilizer costs, and protracted conflicts – including Russia’s war in Ukraine – have pushed weak supply chains to the brink and dramatically increased malnutrition and food insecurity — particularly for African countries.

The Biden administration would rather people starve than be able to feed themselves in order to retain the climate change agenda.
This is globalism and elitism in its full glory. Western politicians, along with multinational corporations, in control of global trade and finance are deciding who lives and who dies according to their climate change ideology. This is how important their Build Back Better scheme is to them.
Liberalism or modern totalitarian leftism is on display as the great global cleaving continues.
The elites in western government think they still have the power to control the rest of the world. However, the absence of food changes things and creates a risk to their agenda.
Many people are starting to realize -through the farming aspect- that western ideology, as manifest in modern globalism, is dangerous. The Davos crowd is willing to kill millions if that is what it takes to retain their climate change ideology.
Keep watching this closely. The multinational U.S. media will continue burying the issue protecting the ruling class.
