1. Africa is so rich in natural resources that you'd think someone would

use them to rich the continent. Also what is the president of a Somalia doing to help the population? Seems like nothing and maybe new leadership is needed next election there. Africa could be first world easily if they could figure out how to trade resources and vote for better leadership.

2. The famine will not stop at Africa, climate change is having ever increasing global repercussions.

Africa is the canary in the coal mine because of that continent's vulnerability in general due to centuries of exploitation going back to the Colonial Age, but climate change and increasing global famine will not stop there.

Furthermore, Russia's invasion of Ukraine is primarily speeding up the process.
