UN: More obese people than hungry people. By Thin Lei Win.
The report said there were 822 million obese people in 2016, the most recent year for which figures were available, when 796.5 million were undernourished. Nutritionists have said obesity figures are likely to have increased further since then.
UN needs more money:
“Obesity is out of control,” said Graziano da Silva … “Now, we are anticipating a big crisis due to the rise of obesity. And this trend takes more time and is more complex (to resolve) than hunger.” …
Goal posts moved:
More than a quarter of the world’s population now struggles to eat “safe, nutritious and sufficient food”, according to the U.N.’s State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2019 report.
For the first time ever, humanity is not in a Malthusian trap. Thanks to the tech revolution — brought about by white civilization, the free market, and non-bureaucratic science, all of which are hated by the left. The left currently seem determined to break western civilization.
If the left has its way, the respite from Malthusian existence will be brief. Forget about a Star Trek future.
It’s called The Enterprise. Funny that. Leftists need not apply.
