The New Gods: The God of the Harvest, Norman Borlaug
Norman Borlaug is credited with saving over a billion people from Starvation.
Sorry, got ahead of myself there. Dr. Borlaug was a plant geneticist and pathologist. His research into increasing crop yields is pretty much the only reason you or I are around right now.
Until his death at age 95, he was credited with saving 10.5 Million people per year.
I’m this year’s ‘Borlaug Intern’ in his hometown of Cresco, IA. I’m working with the Norman Borlaug Heritage Foundation in preserving and improving his boyhood home into an educational center, including educational day camps and other events. It truly has become an honor.
“The Glass Wall Project”
An amazing video diary narrated by Dr. Temple Grandin about how modern day slaughter plants are set up and how they work. This project was done to try and aid agricultural transparency to the general public. THIS is what the meat industry is and this is what it does.
*it does show the use of captive bolt gun and hanging cattle- I would not consider is gruesome, but if you are un familiar with it or have problems with slaughter, you’ve been warned*
