Bill Gates Becomes Biggest Owner of Farmland In US, ‘Food Shortages’ For Humanity Announced

Fact checked
Bill Gates predicts lockdowns and masks will continue into 2022

Bill Gates recent land grab has made him America’s biggest farm owner almost overnight. With Gates now seizing control of America’s food supply, is it a coincidence that globalist institutions like the UN have suddenly started warning about an incoming global food shortage?

Some experts say it’s not a coincidence at all.

In total, Gates now owns approximately 242,000 acres of farmland with assets totaling more than $690m. Land is wealth, land is power, and, more importantly, hundreds of thousands of acres of farm land provides Gates with the ability to control humanity in ways he has only dreamed about before.

But what if claims of food shortages are a dangerous sham and Gates is misleading humanity in order to provide cover and usher in a new era of chemical-intensive and industrial-style agriculture?

Wherever Bill Gates plies his trade, disaster for humanity looms.

Per PresbyterianMission:

No doubt you’ve seen ads about the need to feed the world. The claim is made that by 2050 we’ll need to increase food production by 50%. These ads come from agribusiness corporations such as ADM, Cargill and Bayer-Monsanto, and then they are parroted by the media and academics, despite the fact that there is no scientific basis for the claim.

What if the urgent ‘feed a growing, hungry world’ is a  red herring?

These alarming claims are not only flawed, but dangerous, says Jonathan Latham, co-founder and Executive Director of the Bioscience Resource Project and the Editor of Independent Science News, along with many other researchers, including Serban Scrieciu, Michael Reilly and Dirk Willenbockel, Timothy Wise, Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins.

In Latham’s article, “Agriculture’s Greatest Myth: There Isn’t an Impending Food Crisis” (April 2021), he provides four reasons why the claims are wrong. And if Latham is right, Bill Gates’s approach to agriculture is not only wrong, but damaging to farmers, the environment, and efforts to combat climate chaos.

For decades, and despite the opposition from many sides, Gates and his foundation have been pushing a chemical-intensive, industrial-style agriculture on Africa through the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).

In a recent letter to the Gates Foundation, the interfaith Southern Africa Faith Communities’ Environment Institute said:

We urge the Gates Foundation to stop pushing a green ‘revolution’ that imposes technologies and seeds that are controlled by companies with vested interests. Rather, it should be looking at and learning from small-scale farmers from around the world who are working to build alternative food systems that are socially just and ecologically sustainable.

Yet, Gates and the agribusiness corporations participating in AGRA push forward with their genetically engineered seeds and chemical farming model, driven by profits and justified by the rationale of feeding a growing population.

Latham states that the rationale is wrong. He says that global food models both underestimate global food supply and overestimate demand, and so they predict a crisis when there isn’t one. In his new, peer-reviewed paper, The Myth of a Food Crisis, Latham critiques the United Nations’s GAPS model of estimating food supply and demand – and by extension, he refutes the validity of all similar food system models.

Latham summarizes the four major flaws:

1) That biofuels are driven by “demand”.

As the paper shows, biofuels are incorporated into GAPS on the demand side of equations. However, biofuels derive from lobbying efforts. They exist to solve the problem of agricultural oversupply. Since biofuels contribute little or nothing to sustainability, land used for them is available to feed populations if needed. This potential availability (e.g. 40 percent of US corn is used for corn ethanol) makes it plainly wrong for GAPS to treat biofuels as an unavoidable demand on production.

2) That current agricultural production systems are optimized for productivity.

As the paper also shows, agricultural systems are typically not optimized to maximize calories or nutrients. Usually, they optimize profits (or sometimes subsidies), with very different results. For this reason, practically all agricultural systems could produce many more nutrients per acre at no ecological cost if desired.

3) That crop “yield potentials” have been correctly estimated.

Using the example of rice, the paper shows that some farmers, even under sub-optimal conditions, achieve yields far in excess of those considered possible by GAPS. Thus the yield ceilings assumed by GAPS are far too low for rice and probably other crops too. Therefore GAPS grossly underestimates agricultural potential.

4) That annual global food production is approximately equal to global food consumption.

As the paper also shows, a significant proportion of annual global production ends up in storage where it degrades and is disposed of without ever being counted by GAPS. There is thus a very large accounting hole in GAPS.

The specific ways in which these four assumptions are incorporated into GAPS and other models produces one of two effects. Each causes GAPS to either underestimate global food supply (now and in the future), or to overestimate global food demand (now and in the future).

Some of the above gets technical, but one important bottom-line conclusion is —

1)  The dominant, corporate-driven model of agriculture is based on overproduction, which produces low agricultural commodity prices to benefit agribusiness corporations, rather than an agroecological model designed to benefit farmers and eaters with affordable, healthy food. And the myth of ‘feeding a hungry world’ is fabricated to justify the dominant approach.

Another conclusion is —

2)  There is no global shortage of food – not now nor in the foreseeable future.

Even with population growth and shifting diets, worldwide production can easily surpass increased demand. In fact, the current and future glut will continue and will likely cause commodity prices to decline.

One wild card is the way climate disruption may change the field of play. But promoting industrial agriculture as a way to mitigate or adapt to climate change, when industrialized food systems are the leading emitter of carbon dioxide, defies logic.

Instead, agroecology, which sequesters atmospheric carbon into the soil, needs to be promoted and scaled out to

  • cool the planet
  • provide better nutrition
  • serve farmers needs and
  • protect biological diversity and the integrity of ecosystems around the world

Alarmism about future shortages, especially given enormous faults in the calculus, should never be used to rationalize agricultural expansion, especially when our overproductionist model of agriculture is spurring land grabs, driving ecosystem destruction and climate change, and destroying the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and the economies of poorer nations dependent on agriculture. False concern about feeding a hungry world is being used to justify AGRA-style agriculture, featuring heavy pesticide and fertilizer use and genetic engineering.

Bill Gates is dead wrong and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is a dangerous sham.

  1. The farming industry is totally controlled by corporations, farmers are like their workers really. Its marketed so as yo make them feel as if its their family farm and all that, but in Australia its Crown Lands, often leaseholds. 90%of Australia is Crown Lands. Americas hard to find out, like India and Africa.
    But 242000 acres is a spot in the bucket here where say the big mining magnates all have huge cattle stations of thousands and thousands, of square MILES.. Like Gina Rhinehart who s earned about 35 billion this year from her holes in the ground mainly, and twiggy about t by e same. They have cattle stations too and wheat sheep holdings.
    The Kudmans, of Nicole s people are the biggest landowners leaseholders in Aus, so Gates won’t have a monopoly. Not by a long shot.
    But the class warfare always starves the peasants when they want to cause trouble, destruction of law and order, so they just hide the food away in silos Like the Egyptians did or the Romans It’s really the oldest trick in the book.

    • BTW Ru Paul’s partner and his family are from WA too and he’s a sort of large farmer as well.
      But really the food industries disgusting actually It’s first motive is to maximise profits, not feed people. That’s a big lie.

      • I grew up in primary production surrounded everywhere by cows and orchards and sheep and the waste is incredible Thousands of apple a left to rot every year otherwise there will be too many to sell, bales of wheat stored away because the price will drop otherwise from over supply All that sort of thing every year except if there’s a drought or flood or cyclone, like the one that’s building this minute, that might flatten crops and carry lambs away.
        It’s a horrible business this capitalism from the suffering of animals. And plants Apples aren’t made for us, they’re the trees babies.
        I wish there would be a conscience revilution, and people would wake up and stop being pigs.

    • china owns alot of africa minning land but over half the world is not in the crown and the crown is on the ground since WW-II when many of their settlers broke away from brutty rules

  2. less the 1% of america lives on farms and of those less than half farm at all.One of the reasons for our own mistakes of not being in control of our food supply chain

  3. Farm aid willy nelson and BUY american died.feds didn`t enforce any anti-trust law and big biz took over.Russia is #1 grain producer in the world and at the head of the WTO so way too little way too late.FOOD stortages worldwide already and gas shortage also.Russian learned in the 1970`s with thier grain shortages now the world will learn to grow thier own just in case the baby hilter in ukraine sheilds behind us ALL

  4. Anyone that still refuses to see the plan unfolding as told by the Bible is beyond help at this point.

  5. NOw we can clearly see the result of how government backed companies, in other words, companies that get favoritism by protectionist regulations, tax breaks, bloated government contracts have destroyed our country. He never would have been able to do this in a true free market system. an invisible hand would have self regulated this monstrosity into bankruptcy. now we are imprisoned by monoplies that are on the same agenda to destroy us all.

    • The whole Bill Gates fairytale of being self made is an absolute joke. His mother was on IBM’s board when they “decided” to go with his operating system. His family is so dirty and influential. If he was left to try and make it on his own he would have starved. There is nothing special about him and in most interviews he actually sounds like a moron. He is a parasite who has used his powerful connections and stolen the innovations of others.

      • Zuckerberg, Elon, Besos, zucker, are all placed and moved into their status by the deepstate, bankers, what ever you want to call them. It could have been me or you in their place, as long as we can read a script and didn’t have a conscience. They were probably chosen for their low morals and average to just below average IQ. they are just the famous ones, but all the CEOs are placed and controlled by the central bankers and tasked to do what they are told, not to use their brains and make a profit, but to do the bidding of the central bankers agenda.

        • with the people in place, the governments controlled, they can start creating artifical shortages, price increases, produce crime, breakdown infrastructure, destroy the healthcare system.

          • i have realized what was going on about 15 years ago. I started making plans to get at least a hobby farm. and I did.
            I grew up a spoiled rich kid, now I drive a pick up and tend chickens on purpose. and love it. I chop my own wood for my winter heat, don’t have to, but I do. Plenty of money to drink and smoke dope, but I don’t.
            I know what is coming, not afraid, actually looking forward to it.

      • Yes. And that’s why they use him Idiots prosper in this world because they are stupid and so easily deceived. Mark Zuckerberg was the same One of his classmates at college blew the whistle publicly and stated Mark only screwed around especially with the boys at college, and got others to do his assignments, sit his exams and that in fact he couldn’t even write a single line of code himself.

    • Fascism Rule by corporate law The authority for rule of law is the Pope’s OBAMA. Who are the Famous Fascists? Catholic Mussolini Roman Catholic.
      General Fascist Franco whose role was to rule over Spain with an iron fist in a velvet glove until they decided the political climate was safe to restore the Spanish Royal family in 1975. And the date was selected specifically for Masonix numerology. Just as Williams delivery by Caesarain was also. Charles was playing polo and didn’t bother to be at what was supposed to be his first male progenies delivery .

  6. Now we know who to kill when we start starving due to lack of food. Kill him and confiscate his land. simple as that.

  7. Revelation 6 KJV

    5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

    6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

    7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

    8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

  8. Putin beat the rest of the world to the punch with their grain and fuel production at the top of the WTO half of the ukraine backs russia before the war so that is the side they will take as they fight zelenskyy`s forced to fight crew until they break free of the baby hitler for the west`s attempt at unseating the head of the WTO-PUTIN.NO WW3rd only zelenskyy gone or it hidding behind us until our fuel and food shortages forces the goverment into reason and stops backing the break away baby hitler ruining the earth`s well being

  9. Our farm grounds are used up and full of 70 years of toxic bug killers chemicals at 3 grand per acre-he got ripped off and can never produce natural chemical free food or beef as the farm land is a EPA nightmare and is still toxic bio-haz-mat and allways will be until someone learns how to clean away the toxic haz mat from the dirt air and water.Grass fed beef mother earther all natural food since 1964 but still EPA toxic hotty spot due te the chrome plateing factory putting heavy metal into the rain and run off-ALL DEAD moved on
