The painful food truths exposed by Russia’s war in Ukraine

Published by The Globe and Mail

A global food crisis is looming because of Russia’s brutal war in Ukraine. The two countries have been responsible for more than a quarter of the world’s wheat exports and big quantities of barley, corn and vegetable oil. On top of punishing climate policies and the world’s emergence from the COVID-19 pandemic, prices of fertilizer, energy and transport are soaring, and food prices have climbed 61 per cent over the past two years.

Published by El Español

En la última década, la obsesión de la elite mundial por el cambio climático ha restado importancia a otros problemas relevantes a los que se enfrenta el planeta, como ha demostrado de forma dramática la invasión de Ucrania. Los líderes de Europa Occidental deberían haber dedicado la última década a diversificar las fuentes de energía y ampliar el recurso del shale gas (gas de lutita) en lugar de cerrar las centrales nucleares y depender de Rusia. Pero la inminencia de la guerra no es lo único que han ignorado.
