Monsanto: Lower Profits, Lower Earnings–High Pressure From Consumers Works!
Fighting Back Against The Machine: Monsanto Earnings Report Shows Lower Profits This is a tough world in which to try to bring up a child with good moral values.

We need to change the way we think about meat–before it’s too late

We need to change the way we think about meat–before it’s too late
Addiction to meat may be more of a global threat than addiction to oil Does anybody remember Al Gore? That champion of the earth who stood up to heaps of ridicule that far outstripped what he deserved for his somewhat snooty, somewhat clueless ivory tower ways? Yes, he was the presidential candidate who was pounced upon for saying he invented the internet (despite the demonstrable fact that he never said that, and despite much more incendiary and outrageous claims coming down the pike every day this time around.)… Read the rest

Bill Gates wants Africa to embrace GMO foods–is that such a good idea?

Bill Gates wants Africa to embrace GMO foods–is that such a good idea?
Biotechnology is the key to helping Africans-or so says Bill Gates A not-at-all unexpected advocate for GMO foods has come out in favor of exporting the genetically engineered food technology to Africa, saying that it might not only help poorer African nations feed themselves, but even suggesting that they might be able to produce enough food to export. In a fawning interview with the Wall Street Journal, Gates said, “…GMOs are done by changing the genes of the plant, and it’s done in a way where there’s a very thorough safety procedure, and it’s pretty incredible because it reduces the amount of pesticide you need, raises productivity (and) can help with malnutrition by getting vitamin fortification.”… Read the rest

Cloud-seeding in California has conspiracy theorists up in arms–here’s why
Some people are questioning the motives of government bringing back an old cloud-seeding program in California–here’s what has them so nervous. The term “conspiracy theorist” has such an ugly ring.

There’s a new foe in the global emission wars, and it looks like we’re losing. Badly.
Fracking, another enemy of our delicate climate. If your kid messes up on a chemistry test, he or she might get a bad grade. If things are really terrible, there might be a make-up class or summer school in the offing. But when the scientists and bureaucrats responsible for reacting to and dealing with climate change screw up their chemistry, we all could all end up paying the price for the foreseeable future.… Read the rest

New report from World Health Organization says environment responsible for one-fourth of all deaths

New report from World Health Organization says environment responsible for one-fourth of all deaths
Over 12 million people dead each year due to environmental factors There’s an old, not very good joke. One fish says to another: “How’s the water?” The second fish says, “What the hell is water?” Much in the same way, “the environment” by definition is all around us. But like those talking fish in that terrible joke, we often take it for granted.… Read the rest

Alarming Study shows That Smokers And People Who Stay Indoors Avoiding The Sun Have Similar Risk Level For Death
Lay Off That Sunscreen–You’ll Never Guess What Might Be Just As Bad For You As Smoking A shocking new study suggests an outright blasphemy to all the things we’ve been taught about skin health and avoiding cancer: we should be getting more sun, not less. But the findings are too compelling to ignore.

The Bigger, Badder Cousin Of Monsanto: The International Chemical Fertilizer Industry

The Bigger, Badder Cousin Of Monsanto: The International Chemical Fertilizer Industry
What You Should Know About The Fertilizer Industry–Hint: They’re As Bad Or Worse Than Monsanto. When most people think about fertilizer–and lets face facts: not many of us do at all–we think about manure. Or possibly we think about politics–bah dum tiss. But what most people don’t know and what the fertilizer industry doesn’t want you to know is that it is a chemical-heavy, multi-billion dollar consortium that dwarfs even Monsanto in scope and wealth.… Read the rest
