Farming From Space — Energy Flux Density and Agriculture
Robert Baker presents a terrific pedagogy on Lyndon LaRouche's economic principle of Energy-Flux-Density as it relates to agriculture. The future of farming and the pursuit to eliminate hunger from the planet depends on mankind's continued development of its uniquely creative mind. The spin off technologies of the space program are revolutionizing farming around the world, from GPS technology and automation, to soil analysis, planting and harvesting. With growing cooperation between the United States and China centered on China's Belt and Road initiative and their ambitious space program, it is easy to imagine an unprecedented revolution in mankind's powers over the universe resulting in the elimination of hunger and poverty.
This presentation was originally made at a conference of the Schiller Institute, the China Energy Fund, and the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture held in New York City on July 7,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.
