I had forgotten what kind of unspeakable, brain dead, evil rules this planet, so it was good to be reminded.
In passing, this guy blames the Monsanto suicides on population growth and global warming.
It gets better. He says the water table is sinking but that the only thing that has saved farmers has been a glacier that sometimes brings the sub-continent more water. But that glacier won’t be there to help out the Indian farmer much longer. Why not? Because of global warming.
Get that? Global warming means the glacier will just disappear and there will be less water for farming.
Yes, he said that to a Yale audience and, as far as I can tell, no one blinked.
This all started at the 21-minute mark. See for yourself. How an entire subcontinent can be characterized as having one “waster level” that is sinking at a steady rate is itself a riddle. But this is a really smart Yale guy, so I’m sure he knows some explanation.
