This article examines the likelihood of a monumental nuclear catastrophe in this country due to a takedown of the power grid.
All discussions about a catastrophic failure of any nuclear facility must begin with a cursory analysis of what we have learned about the Fukushima event.
Lessons Learned from Fukushima
Fukushima is often spoken of by many, as a possible extinction level event because of the radiation threat. Fukushima continues to wreak havoc upon the world and in the United States as we are being bathed in deadly radiation from this event.
Because of Fukushima, fish are becoming inedible and the ocean currents as well as the prevailing ocean winds are carrying deadly radiation. Undoubtedly, by this time, the radioactivity has made its way into the transpiration cycle which means that crops are being dowsed with deadly radiation. The radiation has undoubtedly made its way into the water table in many areas and impacts every aspect of the food supply. The health costs to human beings is incalculable. This article is not about the devastation at Fukushima, instead, this article focuses on the fact that North America could have a total of 124 Fukushima events if the necessary conditions were present.

Leon and Barb talk about GMOs. Topics are: Mexico bans GMO corn, Columbian fight for seed freedom, free trade agreements, Rockefeller agribusiness monopoly and eugenics foundation, GMO ban moving ahead in Josephine County, Oregon despite state Monsanto Protection Act, and scientists who say GMOs not proven safe climbs to 231.

That’s what I’ve been doing for quite some time. And that’s what I get. Silence. Apparently they don’t want to argue for their position.
What is their position? Run ballot initiatives saying: “You have a right to know what’s in your food.” Period. End of story.
But don’t attack Monsanto in ads. Don’t say Roundup is poison and causes serious illness. Don’t say Monsanto genes inserted in food crops are unhealthy. Don’t say US growing fields are being overrun and destroyed by superweeds as a result of their immunity to Roundup.
Don’t say Monsanto is treating farmers like slaves. Don’t say Monsanto has been buying up food-seed companies to form a stranglehold on the food supply.
Don’t attack Monsanto in ads.
Don’t show a farmer in an ad who is outraged at Monsanto.
Don’t inflame the voting public.

As I looked around in the local supermarket at the isles of people grabbing boxes of processed food off the shelves without even a thought about what it is they really are eating, I couldn’t help but think….. what would be the easiest, most cost effective way to reduce the population to an “acceptable” level while all the time masquerading as benefactors? And just what would the mechanism be to achieve this?
The answer is simple. That’s right; get us to do the dirty job ourselves. Like rats drawn to a packet of d-Con poison because it is manufactured to smell and taste like real food, the people who consume GMOs (genetically modified/engineered organisms) think that what they are eating and bringing home to the nest is good, pure food. Instead, they are bringing home poison and killing themselves, their families, and the planet, courtesy of your favorite eugenicists at the USDA, aka Monsanto et al. who, according to industry PR spin are the good guys whose only motivation for this GMO takeover is to “feed a hungry planet.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. The truth is, the motivation behind this takeover is anything but benevolent. Read the rest of this entry »
Contamination in biodiversity will burden following generations
Munich/ Lisbon 12.11.2013 Today Testbiotech published the first global overview showing how genetically engineered plants such as maize, rice, cotton, oilseed rape, bentgrass and poplar trees are spreading uncontrollably. This is happening in regions and countries such as the USA and Canada, Middle America, Japan, China, Australia and Europe. In many cases, the plants have escaped far beyond the fields into the environment. In some regions, the transgenes have already moved into populations of wild relatives. The overview was published to coincide with the international conference on coexistence with genetically engineered plants (GMCC), starting today in Lisbon, Portugal. EU Commissioner Toni Borg who is responsible for market authorisations of these plants, will give a video speech at the conference sponsored by companies such as Monsanto and others.
“Coexistence between genetically engineered crops and biodiversity is not possible if crops are spreading into wild populations without control. Industry is contaminating biodiversity and our future seeds – who will hold them responsible?” says Margarida Silva from the GMO-free Platform in Portugal.
There are various reasons for transgene escape. Apart from commercial cultivation and experimental field trials, losses from the import and transport of viable grains for food and feed production are a source of uncontrolled dispersal. The consequences cannot be reliably predicted, and from the cases documented in the overview it is evident that no prediction can be made on how these plants will behave in the long-term or interact with biodiversity.
“EU Commissioner Tonio Borg who is currently pushing for the authorisation of genetically engineered plants in the EU, should be aware of the consequences of this technology on a global scale”, says Christoph Then for Testbiotech. “We need regulations to ensure that the release of genetically engineered organisms is prohibited unless they can be removed from the environment if required.”
A legal dossier published recently by Testbiotech clearly shows a lack of global regulation. The precautionary principle as established in the European Union can only be implemented if there are effective measures in place to remove genetically engineered organisms from the environment if this is urgently required. But even within the EU, a regulatory framework is needed to clarify how this can be implemented in practice.
The Testbiotech report “Transgene escape – Global atlas of uncontrolled spread of genetically engineered plants” was realised with the support of the Gregor Louisoder Umweltstiftung, Munich, Germany.
