While hardcore environmental activists continue to push for a chemical-free world, countries around the world are experiencing mass starvation.
John Stossel reports that many governments have embraced the idea that pure nature is best, such as in Sri Lanka, where chemical fertilizer was banned, resulting in less food production and an 80 percent rise in prices. The move resulted in riots throughout the country, as Sri Lanka slipped into extreme poverty. “It’s out of control,” says environmentalist Michael Shellenberger. He joins Stossel to explain the green dogma.
