Nanotechnologies that deliver fertilizers to plants offer promising ways of improving farm productivity while reducing the risk of water contamination. But the scientists behind a new Swiss-funded study caution that while the technology is still evolving, potential risks must be considered.
The European Unions Horizon 2020 research program proposes heavy investment in developing materials and machines that are built from an atomic or molecular scale, with the European Commission proposing some 6 billion ($7.7 billion) in financing for nano and other advanced technologies.
A UN Food and Agriculture Organization conference held earlier this year in Rome identified nanotechnology as potentially having significant benefits for food security in a world facing a population rise from 7 billion now to 9 billion in 2050.

I’m all for advanced technology.
At the same time if any of these “smart” amoral globalists
end up killing people with their profitable human experimentation, they need to be strung up in town square by their private parts. Same with Bill Gates & Co. geo-engineering atmosphere spray experiments.
The truth about a lot of these people is that they have taken in an ideology that is perfectly capable of “accidently” exterminating human beings and enslaving human beings.
Europe demands, “No NM (nanomonster) food! It’s Unnatural!”
And of course their governments are floating in money so why not start a huge research project to leverage more money out of the productive class. Par for the Keynesian course.
