Government policy in the top

Corporate profits out the bottom. And a whole lot of human suffering in between. Sounds like the military/industrial complex business plan at work in a new field. Embedded Link America: The Food Stamp Nation America has over 44 million people on Food Stamps. The program is hidden from view but this article visualizes the extent… Continue reading »

The same thinking that got us here is going to doom us to a hard landing

Real change is hard. Perpetuating what worked yesterday works right up until it doesn't any more. And by then the opportunity to make a soft landing for ourselves will be finished. I think we're in a bad spot.  I mean the globe here, but the developed economies in particular.  I am losing hope that we will navigate… Continue reading »

The only meaningful investment left

Almost every year since 2005, except during the start of the recession in 2008, agriculture land prices have posted double-digit gains. In the same period, the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index has had double-digit gains in only three of those years. Embedded Link Across Corn Belt, Farmland Prices Keep Soaring Despite the worst drought in… Continue reading »

Anything that encourages people to think more is a good thing

Indeed, we are the last generation to know privacy as it was. It is now something that will have to be taught. And more importantly, what we share online, will now require thoughtful curation to deliberately construct a more accurate and desirable portrayal of who you are and how you wish to be perceived. Embedded… Continue reading »

Apparently we must be running out of adults who give a shit

On Thursday (Oct. 18), 14 year old Samantha Farb of Lecompton, Kansas, became the latest U.S. youngster to file suit (District Court of Shawnee County) against her State under what’s known as the Public Trust Doctrine.

Life or death

Choose. The naturalists, in essence, want to protect life. The seek to live without the devastating scourge of synthetic chemicals.

History may not repeat itself

But it certainly rhymes. Armed and armoured population control. Who is the enemy again? Individuals around the US have begun reporting the site of strange, new, heavily-armed FEMA fighting vehicles. What would a disaster relief agency like FEMA need with 2,500 brand new GLS armored fighting vehicles? According to the agency’s own mandate, as well as President Obama’s… Continue reading »

Goooood question!

I cannot seem to find an answer. Anyone? Why did the manufacturer provide information regarding male rat testes, but not for female rat ovaries? This is more than a little shocking. It’s absolutely damning! We must question the sincerity of both the manufacturer, Merck, and the TGA—not to mention questioning other regulatory agencies, such as… Continue reading »

Just like thalidomide and DDT were built on science from, well, never

Embedded Link The Very Real Danger of Genetically Modified Foods New research shows that when we eat we’re consuming more than… Continue reading »

Or we could continue to ignore reality until we use up the resources required to transition. That would work too. Faced with this picture, end-of-pipe policy reforms, such as David Cameron's voter-friendly but ill-prepared pledge to force the big utilities to offer customers their cheapest deal, are entirely inadequate. They are no substitute for grabbing… Continue reading »

The solution to meaningful employment

Funny that it is also the solution to resource depletion, a sustainable food system and a massive reduction in impacts to the biosphere. It also challenges the status quo, which is why it will be hard fought, if it happens at all. We need a third way that offers people work, resilience and authentic meaning.… Continue reading »

Sounds familiar

Who can forget the images of Gulf War I on CNN. The smell of blood, guts and glory in the afternoon would be just the thing to entertain those bored citizens and keep their mind off the fact that we (the elite) are robbing them blind while doling out just enough for the lesser classes… Continue reading »

Anti-Monsanto science that doesn't rely on organics

The results were stunning: The longer rotations produced better yields of both corn and soy, reduced the need for nitrogen fertilizer and herbicides by up to 88 percent, reduced the amounts of toxins in groundwater 200-fold and didn’t reduce profits by a single cent.

That would be annoying

Cool research though.
