The Gates Foundation is funding a campaign to “end world hunger” by promoting GMO technology. The organization has hired 400 “science ambassadors” to influence agricultural policy in 35 countries.

In the last four years, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated a total of $15 million to two global campaigns aimed at “ending world hunger” by expanding the use of GMO technology.

The first, called the “Alliance for Science,” was created in 2014 with the intention of “depolarizing” the GMO debate.

The second, called “Ceres2030,” was created in 2018 to help the United Nations achieve its goal of “zero hunger by 2030.”

Both campaigns are headquartered at Cornell University.

The Alliance for Science has received $12 million from the Gates Foundation so far, while Ceres2030 was founded with a $3 million grant last October.

The funds for the Alliance for Science will be used “to ensure broad access to agricultural innovation, especially among small farmers in developing nations,” says a Cornell University press release.

The Alliance for Science has hired nearly 400 “science advocates” to “champion evidence-based agricultural policies” (aka share the gospel of GMOs) in 35 countries.

“The situation is increasingly urgent, with many countries at critical junctures in determining whether plant science can help deliver food security and reduce the environmental damage caused by agriculture,” said Alliance for Science director Sarah Evanega.

“We must be sure that science-based solutions don’t bypass the poor.”

The Alliance has built a network of more than 9,000 “science allies” representing more than half the world’s countries and every U.S. state, the release says.

Last fall, the Gates Foundation helped start another campaign at Cornell called Ceres2030, named after the Roman goddess of agriculture.

The “non-profit” campaign will advise the United Nations on which policies and investments to make in order to achieve its goal of “zero hunger by 2030.”

Several of Ceres2030’s board members have clear links to Big Ag, points out Jonathan Latham, cofounder of the Bioscience Resource Project. Chief among them:

1. Ronnie Coffman, secretary of the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications, an agribusiness lobby group for GMOs based at Cornell.

  1. Prabhu Pingali, a cornell professor who conspired with Monsanto executive Eric Sachs and PR executive Beth Anne Mumford to place into scientific literature “subjects chosen for their influence on public policy.”

“Based on internal emails obtained from Cornell via the Freedom Of Information Act, the nonprofit US Right To Know concluded that “The Cornell Alliance for Science is a PR Campaign for the Agrichemical Industry” which uses Cornell’s name as cover,” Latham writes.

  1. ƆTAMFOƆ (The Enemy)
    When the Enemy Shows the Way…
    When the enemy explains,
    he knows his objectives,
    When the enemy walks on a path
    he knows where he is going
    When the enemy shows you the way,
    he knows where you’ll be going
    he knows what you will see,
    he knows you’ve taken a worthless path!
    When the enemy gives you something,
    she knows what she will obtain
    When the enemy leaves something for you,
    she knows what she will get,
    she knows which she will pick
    she knows what will come about
    Considerations of your welfare, never enter into the head of the enemy
    And blood is never absent from the head of the tsetse fly (a blood sucking fly…like a big mosquito)
    So kinfolk protect yourself,
    And also be prepared
    Cause it’s not everyone that smiles at you
    That is your friend
    It’s not everyone who gets up to greet you
    That’s your lover
    So kinfolk protect yourself,
    And also be prepared
    The vulture doesn’t go roaming about for nothing
    If someone wants to kill you, shouldn’t you strive for your life?
    It’s not everyone that gives you a gift
    That is your benefactor
    The snake is no friend of yours,
    He is your enemy!
    So kinfolk protect yourself,
    And also be prepared
    Kinfolk protect yourself,
    And also be prepared!
    ~ and old Asante poem, author unknown…
