You Want REAL Progress? Ask the Dutch

Nobody Reports

I read today that Holland, (In the September issue of National Geographic) has done something that is pretty fantastic. While our politicians are basically busy damaging our country beyond all recognition, and robbing her people of a decent living, little Holland has been working.

Little Holland has revolutionized how to grow food. Cheaply, and without bird killing worthless winds mills, solar panels, Monsanto, or even gas. They use the natural thermos energy underneath the earth to heat their greenhouses.

Here’s some facts:

Since 2000, family greenhouse farmers in Holland have reduced dependence on water for key crops by as much as 90 percent. They’ve almost completely eliminated the use of chemical pesticides on plants in greenhouses, and since 2009 Dutch poultry and livestock producers have cut their use of antibiotics by as much as 60 percent.

Holland is the world’s number two exporter of food as measured by value, second only to the United States which has 270 times it’s landmass. More than half the nation’s land area is used for agriculture and horticulture. Some of these greenhouses cover 175 acres.

While our politicians were spending millions funding electric cars and windmills, and wasting our money on Solyndras, Holland has invented, how to grow food indoors, without depleted soil, and they produce all their own energy, and fertilizer and they even manufacture some of the packaging.

The people from all over Holland get together once a year and they have come up with this. They use natural bugs instead of pesticides to keep the plants healthy. And they have their own bee supply. This tripled the crop as opposed to plants that are subject to pests outside.

In other words: This is the REAL deal. This is real progress. This shows that even if climate change was REAL (which it’s not) no problem.

Think of how America could do this: Our crops would not be subject to floods, hurricanes, droughts, tornadoes…and we’d all be eating healthier food, not to mention the food prices would come down.

We could make so much food we could feed the entire county of starving Venezuela.

Of course, there IS one little reason why it won’t happen: MONSANTO.

Do you think Monsanto is going to give up its trillion dollar, GMO, fertilizer, seed monopoly?

That’s not going to happen. (Oh, Holland makes it’s own seeds too…the ones NOT done in a lab)

It’s really an amazing article. If you get a chance, read it at your nearest newsstand.

Little Holland will someday feed the whole world.

Now, if they could only invent a big giant bug to take out Monsanto.
