Oh Bill Nye! He's a pale shadow of his former self. Now he hops on any bandwagon for his 15 seconds on TV...
Fact: UN food aid is counter-productive after 2 months. Their own research shows this. Gangs (or the Government) steal much of the food and sell in on the `black market`. This drives food prices down, destroying the local production. That, of course, causes MORE starvation! If the aid actually reaches those in need? That`s terrific! But there`s an entire economy based on stolen food aid. It feeds Warlords, gangs, corrupt officials and NOT those in need.
What can WE do about the horrible governments in hell-holes? Not a darn thing.
