One economist is warning that Europe may be facing a food crisis in 2021 as a direct result of the COVID lockdowns instituted by European Union and its governments. This shortage is being noticed in a steady increase in food prices over the past several months, with a staggering one-month increase of 2.2% in December 2020 over November.
The incompetence of the European Union, that is basically run by a handful of bureaucrats, was on full display this past week as Italy seized a shipment of vaccines previously ordered by Australia.
The incompetence of the EU and its bureaucracy was on full display, when it recently restricted vaccines being produced in the European Union destined for Canada. This has resulted in a shortfall in vaccines previously ordered by the Canadian government.
The incompetence of the bureaucrats running the European Union (EU) is fully on display, as it tries to force AstraZeneca, that is manufacturing COVID vaccines in Britain, to send those vaccines to the European Union instead of to the Brits who had ordered them.
A recent article in a major newspaper reveals the disturbing and dark side of science. The Times of London is reporting a group of scientists had decided that pesticides were the reason for the declining honey bee populations and with this bias firmly in place set out to find evidence and write reports that fit their beliefs. And here we thought it was the facts that determined the science, not scientists pre-determining the facts. Silly us. The Times received notes of four high-ranking scientists from a meeting in 2010 where the group allegedly discussed how they could convince European Union (EU) regulators to ban “neonicotinoid pesticides.” They even outlined who would write the articles and how they could co-ordinate their efforts for greatest effect. They also discussed the increased impact of convincing a major scientific journal to publish these articles.
