World Grain Production

Grain Production Miracle Debunks Climate Alarmists

by Lewis Loflin

Climate scientists have claimed since the 1970s the world faced starvation and mass hunger. The usual culprits were pollution and climate change. Didn't happen.

John P. Holdren climate communist and science adviser to President Obama, joined with arch Malthusian crackpot Paul Ehrlich made the above claims.

See Crackpot Entomologist Predicts Mass Starvation.

In the 1970s and 80s they were full prophesy mode. In 1986 they declared "it is possible that carbon-dioxide climate induced famines could kill as many as a billion people before the year 2020."

Ref. Paul Ehrlich, The Machinery of Nature (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1986), P274.

Sorry Paul, we are doing fine in 2024. What a crackpot.

Update. To quote,

Total 2023-24 cereal production was revised upward by 13.2 million tonnes to 2.836 billion tonnes, an increase of 1.2% from 2022-23. The FAO also raised its 2023-24 production estimate for wheat by 1.4 million tonnes to 788.5 million, which is still 2.2% lower than the 2022-23 total.

This is higher than the 2.613 billion tons of 2018 by far. We are in climate emergency according to these crackpots in 2024. Ref.

India grain production 2007-2022.

At that time "all of the scientists agreed" and are often the same crackpots today.

They are wrong in 2019. This scare-mongering has been going on for 50 years. They now predict a century into the future the same rubbish that science "consensus" claimed would happen by now.

At 12/26/2018 notes world production of wheat will hit 733.4 MILLION metric tons. Update: wheat production for 2023-24 is 788.5 million tons.

The U.S. was ranked 5th. Countries such as Russia that struggled to feed their people under communism out produces the U.S. Note the following in millions of tons:

#1 - EU - 187.6; #2 - China - 182.5; #3 - India - 99.7; #4 - Russia - 70.0; #5 - United States - 51.3; #6 - Canada - 31.8.

This wasn't supposed to happen. Clearly a combination of a slightly warmer climate, higher carbon dioxide levels, and technology contributed to the miracle.

NASA has noted an explosion of plant growth and "greening" in recent years. They attribute that to the above.

According to Statista 2016/2017 corn production in the U.S. alone hit 388 million metric tons! That is 1.2 metric tons per person!

In 2016/17 world corn production was 1 BILLION plus metric tons!

Update 2024:

World corn production in the 2023/24 season is expected to reach 1220.8 million tons (Mt), an increase of 5.5% compared to the 2022/23 season (1157.1 Mt). Nov 21, 2023


What about rice? Statista reports for 2017:

Worldwide production of milled rice 488.6m tons.

China's production of paddy rice 208.1m tons.

World production volume of milled rice 484.1m tons.

Technology-science - 1, Climate socialism - 0.

Update 2024:

Total global rice supplies in 2023/24 are projected at 692.6 million tons, up 1.6 million tons from the previous forecast, mostly due to a higher carryin estimate for India. Nov 14, 2023
