In reply to comment: The United Nations (see in situ)

Yes, the Rio20+ irony is more than GALLING.

Such as this, for one... The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is a specialized agency of the UN. Its annual meeting was in February. "Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will share his perspective on the importance of agriculture and how sustainable productivity improvements can reduce poverty in developing countries." http://www.ifad.org/media/press/2012/alert/1.htm

The event is noted on the Rio 20 website: "UN boosts partnership with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help small farmers."

Funny, but I didn't see any mention of this: Bill Gates Foundation Buys 500,000 shares of Monsanto. http://naturalsociety.com/bill-gates-foundation-buys-500000-...

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
