Synopsis: The Gates Foundation helps people in the South by spending 
money in the North, runs the joke. But is the Gates Foundation also a 
fauxlanthropy?

In this article I show how the Gates Foundation recently started 
Ceres2030, a Cornell University-based project to capture the science 
and drive the policy agenda of agriculture and development. Ceres2030 
has purchased a forthcoming special issue of prestigious Nature 
magazine that it will populate with articles and authors of its own 
choosing. These articles will in turn be used for future media and 
policy work. The evidence so far is that the goal of Ceres2030 is not 
sustainability but to spearhead chemical-intensive and GMO 
agriculture in developing countries.

Please share if you find this article valuable.

Best wishes,
Jonathan

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits 
and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic 
society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society 
constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of 
our country."
