A Miraculous Turn of Events

A Miraculous Turn of Events

Financiers of Poverty, Malnutrition and Death – Part 2

    By Paul Driessen It’s easy to farm organically in the wealthy, advanced EU and USA, where consumers can afford much more expensive organic meats, eggs, fruits and vegetables. It’s much harder if you have to deal with the insects and crop diseases that plague African farmers on constant massive levels and locusts that […]

Financiers of poverty, malnutrition and death – Part 1

    By Paul Driessen The UN Food and Agriculture Organization, anti-development banks, the Agency for International Development (USAID), NGO (non-government organization) pressure groups and other eco-imperialists are properly condemned for using their money, power, and control over trade and lending to keep millions of African, Asian and Latin American families from having access to […]

Let’s quarantine some fake corona and energy news

  By Paul Driessen Some 40,000 children slave away in Chinese-operated Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) mines, digging out cobalt for cell phones, laptops, Teslas and Green New Deal technologies, the London-based Guardian has reported.

Fight the virus, not carbon

Fight the virus, not carbon

    By Paul Driessen and David Wojick Often obsessive focus on climate wastes scarce money and distracts from real health crisis The many trillions of dollars proposed to be spent under dubious “green new deals” should be spent instead (effectively and within reason) on health care, especially virus prevention, protection and cures. This is […]

    By Paul Driessen The ChiCom coronavirus and COVID-19 outbreaks, deaths and responses continue to dominate US, European and Asian news. Meanwhile, a very different infestation is devastating East African crops and leaving tens of millions at risk of starvation and death.

Virginia’s ‘Clean Economy Act’ Will Have Dirty Results

  By Paul Driessen Largely with party-line, urban-vs-rural votes, Virginia’s legislature is poised to enact a Clean Economy Act that would eliminate coal-based electricity generation, prevent construction of new gas-fired power plants – and replace reliable, affordable fossil energy with wind, solar and battery-backup power. The bill offers important cautionary lessons for voters, workers and […]

Keeping Africa on the Brink of Starvation

Keeping Africa on the Brink of Starvation

  By Paul Driessen Billions of desert locusts have descended again on East Africa. Crawling first, then sprouting wings and flying in hungry hoards of 40-150 million or more, they are devastating crops and threatening tens of millions of people with lost livelihoods and starvation. This latest locust plague, says the United Nations, is the […]
