I was quoted by the Kenyan media outlet Daily Nation on the issue of agroecology. You can read parts of the article below, or you can read the entire article here.
“Like doomsday cultists, they declared that the end of the world was nigh unless we all repented and stopped using synthetic chemicals to control weeds and pests and fertilisers. To them, the only way to reach the ‘Promised Land’ is to only practice organic farming.
This is a very dangerous and reckless preposition. As one commentator said, the conference was anti-science activism based on environmental fantasies.
“Agroecology as a political doctrine has no place in science-based policy discourse, and its promotion – given the scientific knowledge we have to today – is immoral. It needs to be stopped,” said Bill Wirtz, a policy analyst.”
