Science could save Africa $4 trillion a year - but Europeans won't let it

INTRO: In the bizarre maze of modern cultural geopolitics, European progressives spend a lot of time rending garments about their history of colonialism, slavery, and exploitation while engaging in it - using financial blockades if former colonies do not comply.

If a small trading partner wants to export food to Europe, it cannot use any science that Europe bans, and European progressives have a level of control over science that American activists only wish they could attain.

There's one big big problem with that; it cripples small countries. They are already at a disadvantage that science can fix. Europe prevents them from using it.

Europe's land is so fertile that something that sounds minor in hindsight - the heavy plow - made already prosperous land so successful compared to most of the world that colonialism and world dominance became possible. Cheap food makes lots of other things attainable. Being able to feed itself cheaply is so easy that a dairy cow in France receives twice as much in a government subsidy as a sub-Saharan farmer earns each year.

For those not lucky enough to be born in Europe, science is the great equalizer. It can help land prone to drought or previously only suitable for grazing grow enough to feed people, and even grow enough to export it. Unless European activists use logic like 'science we paid to get banned in Europe is still used in other countries and it should not be imported here.'

Despite knowing how important it is, affordable food is what Europe is against for developing nations. How much does it cripple other countries? Up to $4 trillion a year - just from invasive species... (MORE)
