NOTE: No mathematical or rhetorical concepts were hurt in this post.
If you look at a photo of a “nature reserve” in the German insect study, you can clearly see the reserves are an intensive agricultural area.
It’s kinda the point. It’s like southern Ontario, a big shit hole of crop fields with small tree islands. The islands are too isolated and small to sustain biodiversity. Ecology needs a depth and breadth of forest to propagate.
My brother-in-law used to say, if the bugs won’t eat it, neither will I. I always admired the bald faced simplicity of that claim.
6 corporations = 100% of media.
5 families = 100% of food. (poetic license = slight exageration)
Humans and livestock occupy 50% of land and caused 80% of land vertebrate species extinctions over 10,000 years.
Humans and livestock caused 66% of insect die offs in the last 20 years. 80% of 75%?
Humans and livestock will destroy 100% of soil destruction in 50 years. 100% of 0?
Our food is killing all the earth.
When soil dies we will have to cut more trees to grow food.
This is clearly not only unsustainable, it is anti-sustainable.
The food that is poisoning us while destroying earth and burning soil is not a giant corporation filled with worker drones.
Almost 90% of food products we buy is owned by 10 corporations, and those 10 corporations buy their food supplies from 5 super rich powerful families.
These 5 families now own the poison proof seeds and technology we need to eat. This is why we allow them to do it.
Monsanto and Bayer are the 2 primary drivers of mass extinction. They are going to legally merge into one giant earth killing machine, and we’re too caught up in race, sex and class politics to notice.
