U.S. Desertification Caused by Government

[Government, not the Government]

You can see from the work of Bill Mollison and others that it’s quite possible to green the desert without massive infrastructure projects. The present desertification of the South-West of the United States is not a result of “climate change”, it’s the result of misuse of the water that’s always been there, under the ground, regardless of the periodic minor variations in climate.

The second video below gives an idea of what could have happened had common sense prevailed over the short term self-interest of a very few, and what could still happen if people wake up.

Who Benefits From GM Crops?

Short answer, big agriculture, big business and little Bill. Bill Gates along with Monsanto are using their US government to force GM crops on Africa, says a report by FoE International. Small farmers will suffer, even more than they are under the current alleged aid and development projects.

In their press release, FoE says:

“South African farmers have more than 16 years’ experience cultivating GM maize, soya and cotton, but the promise that GM crops would address food security has not been fulfilled. Indeed, South Africa’s food security is reportedly declining with almost half the nation currently categorised as food insecure even though South Africa exports maize,” said Haidee Swanby from the African Centre for Biosafety.

“The South African experience confirms that GM crops can only bring financial benefits for a small number of well-resourced farmers. The vast majority of African farmers are small farmers who cannot afford to adopt expensive crops which need polluting inputs such as synthetic fertilisers and chemicals to perform effectively,” she added.
[strange usage of “effectively” there, maybe she knows what they’re really for!]

…According to the final declaration of the Forum for Food Sovereignty, …”Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.”

Why Rockefellers Aim at Destroying Farmers Worldwide.

William Engdahl has published an in-depth article about the Rockerfellers’ agribusiness revolution and the devastating impact it has had on our health, our food and the lives of farmers worldwide. Read it at journal-neo.org.

Here’s an interview he did for Red Ice Radio (doesn’t cover everything in the article):

Gates Foundation Promoting Corporate Takeover Of Global Agriculture

Filed under: Charity — Direct Sponsor @ 12:56 pm
Tags: , , ,

(NaturalNews) After it was exposed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the philanthropic brainchild of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto back in 2010 valued at more than $23 million, it became abundantly clear that this so-called benevolent charity is up to something other than eradicating disease and feeding the world’s poor. It turns out that the Gates family legacy has long been one of trying to dominate and control the world’s systems, including in the areas of technology, medicine, and now agriculture

Avaaz Global Ebay of Seeds

Filed under: Charity,Development — Direct Sponsor @ 10:43 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

Already 56,000 people have pledged to support a global ‘internet seed swap’ initiative promoted by Avaaz,. Trouble is, the plans are deeply flawed, and have been developed without consultation with major seed saving groups worldwide. They also claimed the approval of the famous activist Vandana Shiva, but had to apologize when she said she didn’t approve of it!

Is Avaaz just another NGO trying to make a buck out of others’ misfortune, or is there something more sinister going on? You be the judge.

Sumerian Civilization Ended by Drought?

Filed under: Desertification — Direct Sponsor @ 11:19 am
Tags: , , , , ,

A 200-year-long drought 4,200 years ago may have killed off the ancient Sumerian civilization, according to Matt Konfirst, a geologist at the Byrd Polar Research Center

Thanks largely to the mainstream obsession with ‘climate change’, research into historical disasters that focuses on climate is getting more funding. Mainstream reporting of this research is skewed towards supporting the idea that we must give Al Gore and his carbon mafia all our money and submit to global government, but in between the lines we can piece together a story of successive civilizations which were destroyed by drought. The causes of these droughts are largely left unexplored by mainstream journalists, with speculation confined to statements like “The findings also suggest that modern-day civilizations may be vulnerable to climate change”

There isn’t much evidence that the Sumerians had cars, or package holidays, or air conditioning, so it’s unlikely that their plights had much to do with anything that would easily be construed as supporting carbon taxes and state interference in every aspect of our lives, so the reasons for the climate change are pretty much left out of the reports we get to see in the mainstream media. However, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that agriculture (and thus deforestation) might at least have something to do with it.

Click for Clean Water In Africa!

where people come to get water

The source is 10km walk from Ait Larbi.

Your clicks can help us publicize our efforts to bring clean drinking water to Ait Larbi and the other villages in the mountains where our project is. Just viewing the videos, commenting on them, clicking the ‘like’ button, subscribing to the youtube channel and adding some videos to your favorites will increase the likelihood of people finding them and wanting to help.

We only need a few thousand euros to get clean drinking water.  Compared to the failed mega-project (see the video) that is small change. It won’t take many people and we have some money already. If  you want to help with that cost, you can send money direct to an account in Morocco. We’re not a big-shot NGO with offices and staff and computers to support, so 100% of it will go directly on the borehole.. By making our videos and website more prominent, you can help with that, without even sending money!
