Farming the Galaxy

Benjamin Deniston, Researcher, 21st Century Science & Technology magazine, led off his remarks at the July 7 Schiller Institute Food For Peace conference by presenting Lyndon LaRouche’s refutation of “Limits to Growth,” in terms of the ability of the human species to exert creativity and intervene to deliberately create “new” natural resources, and thereby constantly increase the potential relative population density of humankind. One example of this kind of intervention, is to understand and expand usable water resources. Deniston gave a short update on the progress in inducing rainfall through ionization methods, and explained the significance of understanding the phenomenon of “atmospheric rivers,” of potentially tapping into these water vapor configurations of Earth.

This presentation was originally made at a conference of the Schiller Institute, the China Energy Fund, and the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture held in New York City on July 7, 2017. It is presented here because it relays adaptations of some of Lyndon LaRouche's key ideas to high productivity in food production.
