Klamath Basin Crisis

We are not happy about this at all. Four years ago they started turning off our surface water. Two years ago they turned off our house water from a spring and now they are trying to turn off our irrigation wells. On the wells, they are going to have a fight (legal). The details of that will be skipped as that battle has just started.

What is more important is how blatant the Oregon Department of Water Resources Staff is about this. There was a meeting last Monday, where they were happy to explain how their computer model tells them that 140 wells that are closer than 1 mile to a river are denying the rivers over 100 cubic feet per second(cfs), but the wells that are one foot over a mile from the river are not hurting the river enough to bother. That right there should tell you there is a problem with what they are doing.

I assert the model has no correlation to the real world. How can I back that up you ask?

I can back that up several ways. The easiest way is looking at the river flow. There is a gauge station on the Lower Williamson River that has been there for 100 years. For those paying attention 100 years of data is a lot of data. Most of the irrigation wells have been drilled since 1950. That means we have river data for 32 years before the wells were drilled. In those 32 years the  average flow is 860cfs. Since 1951 the average flow is 1052cfs. That means since the wells have been drilled there is almost another 200 cfs in the rivers.

That does not sound like the wells are drying up the rivers. In fact, a person could argue that the wells are helping the river flows in a number of ways. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Miss the Mono Satanic Wedding of the Year!

Julian Rose

A Special Report by Big Pharma/Big Agro Weekly News

(Satire…. or is it?)

Farm Wars

Oh happy day! Two entities that are clearly a near perfect match, are to be joined together in hellish madrimony.

On the 21st March, 2018, after due consideration, The EU Monopolies and Murders Commission sanctioned their marriage – for the princely sum of just $666 billion dollars. What a joyous day for the people, plants and animals of planet Earth!

The wedding, between these two infamous same-sex corporates, is to be celebrated with a laboratory prepared Roundup Ready cocktail, which invited guests will be able to savor from specially commissioned asbestos goblets, each bearing the Saturnian insignia’s of the corporate couple.

Cyber waiters, wearing only a fixed smile and an Aspirin, will bring to the table a large bowl of Agent Orange consomme, as black nanotech confetti rains down on the happy couple.

Genetically modified mosquitoes in a rich glyphosate sauce is to follow; garnished with Amflora GM potatoes and further spiced with Monsanto’s very own Flaver Saver tomato dressing. I am reliably informed, that the  eagerly awaited desert will be an organophosphate Golden Rice pudding, served in genetically engineered pig skin bowls with the words ‘New World Order’ inscribed on the outer rims.

A gentle ‘digestivo’ of microwave warmed  Coca Cola will also be served, sweetened by Monsanto’s original saccharin chemical formula, to help settle any over inflated stomachs.

Lastly, for anyone wanting something as simple as a nice glass of water, the Carkill corporation has most generously offered to donate free bottles of its fluoride enriched tap water, for this occasion.

After their sumptuous dinner, guests will be entertained by Lady Bla Bla, Mad Onna and Miley Citrus, a cyborgian trans-gender act famous for its ’emotion free’ performances and costumes entirely made from reconstituted GM chicken thighs. What a grand spectacle! Read the rest of this entry »

The following is a letter and supporting documents from Dr. Rosemary Mason MB ChB FRCA, detailing Monsanto’s contribution to what is known as the Sixth Mass Extinction. The supporting documents can be downloaded at the bottom of the page. But first, let’s understand what we are talking about when we speak of the Sixth Mass Extinction.

What is the Sixth Mass Extinction?

For many decades, scientists have warned that human activity is pushing life on our planet beyond the point of no return. In the Earth’s history there have been five mass extinction events, most recently the Cretaceous–Tertiary mass extinction that occurred almost 65 million years ago and was thought to have been caused by the massive impact of an asteroid on Planet Earth. In the 21st century, we face a sixth mass extinction. According to an article published in July by Gerardo Ceballos and colleagues, the Earth is experiencing a huge decline in species’ populations and a great reduction in their range that could have profound effects on the ecosystems on which human civilisation depends. They found that about 30% of land vertebrates including reptiles, birds, and amphibians are experiencing a decline and losses in local population. In some parts of the world they are losing 70% of their species because of habitat degradation. The authors describe their findings as a biological annihilation, claiming that the sixth mass extinction might be already underway. (Lancet)

What is Driving it?

We are now living in the Anthropocene, the first time in Earth’s history when synthetic chemicals—created by humans—are damaging the planet and contributing to a major loss of biodiversity. Pesticides are a particular problem in this regard. Agricultural practices changed dramatically following World War II. Methods for the production of nitrogen for manufacturing explosives were adapted for use as fertilizer in agriculture. Further, chemicals used to combat insect vectors for disease during World War II were adapted for the control of insect pests in agriculture. Eventually, herbicides used as defoliants to destroy food supplies and aid in combating soldiers using forests as cover, were customized to control weeds in agriculture. The heavy use of pesticides in agriculture has resulted in global exposure to these chemicals. Travelling through water, air, and in migrating animals, pesticides can be found in drinking water reservoirs, the atmosphere, on mountain tops, and even in remote areas in the Arctic where they are not used. The widespread exposure to agrichemicals has altered landscapes and ecosystems around the world. In addition to directly killing non-target organisms, target and non-target organisms can evolve resistance to pesticides, resulting in altered gene pools. (Elementa)
