There is Strategic Petroleum Reserve and when fuel was getting more expensive, president Biden increased the supply:
This prompted us to investigate whether Strategic Food Reserve exists and unfortunately not.
Excellent (and not too long) article, posted on 25 Feb 2022, day after the 🇷🇺🇺🇦 invasion:
Cost-benefit analysis, risk-reward ratio - I see no downside. It can even boost farmer profits - if too much food is produced it can provide the demand side.
Even before I found this excellent article I tried to contact WFP, WHO, UNICEF, ALLFED:
The whole purpose of Strategic Food Reserve is to keep strategic reserves of food. Holding money does not help, if there is not enough food to go around.
Key area of concern: MBBF multiple breadbasket failure
Measurements with delay
Scientific papers with delay
IPCC reports with delay
Climate itself acts with delay
Politicised process, unanimous consensus 🤷♀️
Russia - UN Security Council veto
Saudi Arabia, Quatar - oil
Brazil, Argentina - beef
United States - previous president climate change denier
Decades of misinformation (confusion, educating about “uncertainties in science”)
Fragility of the climate system
Obsolete climate models, established during time when climate was stable
How do we know that?
Papers, journals, articles
My own observations (hottest day, strongest wind, fallen tree in my garden)
Friends, discussions, conversations, debates, arguments, counter-arguments
Debating climate change deniers on Twitter
I genuinely enjoy heated debates but trolls on Twitter were quitting on me. That made me think… No real troll seeking attention and controversy would quit a heated debate with a guy like me. The simplest explanation that came to my mind:
Russia is the only country that benefits from climate change and melting Arctic - opening Northwest Passage. All the climate change deniers are Putin trolls.
(other countries that could potentially benefit - Canada, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland - all these have high Human Development Index and World Press Freedom Index - extremely unlikely they are engaging in misinformation or propaganda)
Cannot prohibit talking about denial (Streisand Effect) but by associating climate change denier with Putin supporters - it can help reduce the intensity of the claims and change the dynamic.
In all other cases where freedom of speech is on the line - supporting free expression. The difference with climate denial is that my own personal safety is at stake. Flat Earth belief is harmless, climate change denial delays action that in turn will cause people to lose lives.
(they are already losing lives due to climate related situations)
10x — new paradigm, uncharted waters, infinite possibilities
10% — nuanced negotiation, incremental process, business as usual
We have received loads of praise for END WAR NOW strategy and exit option for Putin.
➡️ Peace deal between Ukraine and Russia - initial 💡💡💡
➡️ Attempted coup in Russia - happened soon after, gave me loads of hope
➡️ Alien invasion - this meme keeps appearing more and more
➡️ Elon Musk + Mr Beast + Daniel Schmachtenberger
Elon: obviously. Mr Beast: biggest YouTube channel (164m subs as of now).Daniel: philosopher, system thinker, thought leader. Loads of this content is massively inspired by him.
And in the meanwhile - Strategic Food Reserve
Less grain for 🐄💨💩
Beef so damaging...
…and the customer preferences can be changed so easily by accounting for the cost
We really hope the harvest will be good and Strategic Food Reserve won’t be necessary. With that said, this is something that should exist one way or another to ensure there is always enough food to address any extreme climate events.
