CFACT has made the UN “blink.”

The UN Chronicle, the “magazine of the United Nations,” has deleted an article from 2008 titled “The Benefits of World Hunger,” after CFACT’s Marc Morano, editor of, published an interview with the author of the UN article, professor George Kent of the University of Hawaii.

While the UN Chronicle claims the article was “satire,” Kent, the author of the piece, said the article is definitely not a “satire” but was intended to be “provocative.” After CFACT’s interview with Kent was published, the UN Chronicle deleted the article 14 years after its original publication.

Here is an excerpt from Kent’s UN Chronicle article:

“Hunger has great positive value to many people. Indeed, it is fundamental to the working of the world’s economy. Hungry people are the most productive people, especially where there is a need for manual labour…How many of us would sell our services if it were not for the threat of hunger?

“More importantly, how many of us would sell our services so cheaply if it were not for the threat of hunger?

“For those of us at the high end of the social ladder, ending hunger globally would be a disaster. If there were no hunger in the world, who would plow the fields? Who would harvest our vegetables? Who would work in the rendering plants? Who would clean our toilets? We would have to produce our own food and clean our own toilets. No wonder people at the high end are not rushing to solve the hunger problem. For many of us, hunger is not a problem, but an asset.”

CFACT’s Morano had this to say about the article:

“This is a UN article and was published in 2008 in the UN Chronicle. It is now just getting media attention and the author of the article, Professor George Kent, told Climate Depot on July 6, 2022, that the UN article is most definitely not a ‘satire’ but intended to be ‘provocative.’ The UN is now trying to erase history by deleting the essay and falsey pretending that it was merely a “satire.”

“Given how the world has been transformed under the ‘new normal’ of COVID lockdowns, it seems this old UN Chronicle article presciently reveals how the World Economic Forum and the UN & the WHO, seek to rule humanity with an iron bureaucratic fist and wish to keep the ‘masses’ poor, tired, and hungry.”
