Other countries are protecting their food supplies. Argentina, Russia, and Ukraine have all stopped exporting to be able to feed their people. Yet the United States of America continues to export hand-over-fist to China — based on the data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. How is this happening? Who is in control? Christian Westbrook asks some hard questions tonight on this troubling Ice Age Farmer broadcast — and the answers demand that we start growing food immediately.
News of lopsided China food trade comes as we learn that Bill Gates is the single largest owner of American farmlands. So Gates not only controls our computer system but also our food supply, having amassed 240,000 acres. His influence in the world food systems is astounding. What can we expect he will do with this inconceivable amount of control over the world’s food supply? Christian Westbrook takes a deep look at the investments, motivations and goals of the new #1 owner of our farms on this Ice Age Farmer broadcast.
