India is a wheat exporter...I’ll be danged. Thirty years ago, with 40%-50% of the population, they were starving.

Go figure.

Another exhibit for the “Paul Ehrlich is ALWAYS Wrong” pile.
India is a net exporter of food. In the 70’s he predicted they’d all starve to death by 1985.

In my lifetime, during my university education, liberal professors told MD India would never be able to feed itself. One professor even stated that should India pursue self determination the only solution would be the death of 95% of the population and the use of their remains to fertilize the land.

I guess they happened upon a solution he hadn’t considered

Damn that GMO food. Damn that Monsanto. Damn that Norman Borlaug. They're all pure evil, I tell ya. Don't these people know that they're killing themselves by eating all that genetically modified wheat? They'd be much better off starving like they were 30-40 years ago.

Yeah, it's sarcasm.

Are they exporting to America yet?

As long as they don’t try to sell it in the USA I don’t care. We don’t need the same low quality standards they apply to their other exports.
