Revelación 6:6 NAS Y oí como una voz en el centro de los cuatro seres vivientes, que decía, "Un litro de trigo por un denario, y seis libras de cebada por un denario; y no dañes el aceite ni el vino."
“Read a book on growing vegetables if you don’t know anything about farming or having a garden. Food will be a better commodity than gold, not simply for consumption but for trading. People cannot eat gold.”
-Jim Bakker en "la prosperidad y el apocalipsis"
The United Nations has called on the United States to end production of biofuel ethanol because of the current worldwide food crisis.
Current US law requires that 40% of the nation’s corn must be used to create biofuel. Prices are currently facing significant increases with the USDA estimating the corn yield will be the lowest in 16 año. The shortfall is estimated to cause close to a 40 percent rise in prices per bushel.
The estimated increase in prices if situations remain the same is on top of a 23 percent increase in prices in July.
US officials have stated that the production of biofuel is good for the country as it lowers the need to import fuel.
“It is impacting in a positive way the cost of gasoline,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack stated. “Some estimates put it at 25 cents to as much as $1.30 less for gas because we have a biofuel industry.”
The UN, sin embargo, has allies among the livestock producers in the US. The cost of cattle feed is increasing and putting a strain on family farms.
