GMO Crop Catastrophe in USA a lesson for EU

Comments Off

Linked with Frederick William Engdahl – Germany and USA. – Published on Voltairenet.org, by F. William Engdahl, August 22, 2010.

As the European Union moves closer to approving the cultivation of GMOs despite stiff widespread opposition, it ought to be paying urgent attention to the agricultural arms race unfolding in the United States. The gospel of high-tech genetically modified (GM) crops is no longer sounding quite so sweet.

Roundup-resistant “superweeds” are plaguing Monsanto crops across southern US states, driving farmers to use more herbicides, abandon their farms or … return to conventional crops  … //  Continue Reading…

Copenhagen and Carbon Trading: Why the commodification of Nature will not solve climate change

Comments Off

Published on Socialist Project.ca, by Mary Thibodeau, August 2010.

As the Yes Men hoax of the Copenhagen negotiations and environmental justice movements expose Canada’s shameful position on climate change, we are faced with many possible takes on the climate change issue. The Yes Men hoax illuminated Canadian inaction through a fake Environment Canada press release stating that Canada is “taking the long view on the world economy” and reversing its previous woefully inadequate positions on climate change, thereby acknowledging the need to take full responsibility for emissions. Later it emerged that Canada was not, in fact, acknowledging its climate debt to poor nations, and that tar-sand development would continue on as usual. As climate justice movements and the climate debt agents mobilized around the indebtedness issue, others saw ‘hope’ in Obama’s presence at the negotiations … //

WHO Scandal Exposed: Advisors Received Kickbacks From H1N1 Vaccine Manufacturers

Comments Off

Published on Global Research.ca, by Mike Adams, June 7, 2010.

A stunning new report reveals that top scientists who convinced the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare H1N1 a global pandemic held close financial ties to the drug companies that profited from the sale of those vaccines. This report, published in the British Medical Journal, exposes the hidden ties that drove WHO to declare a pandemic, resulting in billions of dollars in profits for vaccine manufacturers.

Several key advisors who urged WHO to declare a pandemic received direct financial compensation from the very same vaccine manufacturers who received a windfall of profits from the pandemic announcement. During all this, WHO refused to disclose any conflicts of interests between its top advisors and the drug companies who would financially benefit from its decisions. Continue Reading…

Conservation’s poverty reduction claims questioned

Comments Off

Does greater biodiversity help or hinder the world’s poorest people? – Published on Nature.com, by Natasha Gilbert, 6 May 2010.

The conservation of biodiversity is often touted as a win-win solution both for the environment and for the world’s poorest people, who rely on vanishing natural resources for food and income.

But several studies presented at a meeting of the Zoological Society of London last week challenged the largely anecdotal evidence linking conservation projects with a reduction in poverty. Instead, researchers argued, the financial or employment opportunities that arise from conservation efforts all too often go to more affluent people in local communities. “If poverty reduction is your objective for a conservation project, it’s not a good focus,” says social scientist Craig Leisher, a senior adviser to the Nature Conservancy, a conservation agency in Arlington, Virginia. “There are better ways to do it” … //  Continue Reading…

Glacier Meltdown: Another Scientific Scandal Involving the IPCC Climate Research Group

Comments Off

Published on Global Research.ca, by by F. William Engdahl , January 23, 2010.

Only days after the failed Copenhagen Global Warming Summit, yet a new scandal over the scientific accuracy of the UN IPCC 2007 climate report has emerged. Following the major data-manipulation scandals from the UN-tied research center at Britain’s East Anglia University late 2009, the picture emerges of one of the most massive scientific frauds of recent history.

Senior members of the UN climate project, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have been forced to admit a major error in the 2007 IPCC UN report that triggered the recent global campaign for urgent measures to reduce “manmade emissions” of CO2. The IPCC’s 2007 report stated, “glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world.” Given that this is the world’s highest mountain range and meltdown implies a massive flooding of India, China and the entire Asian region, it was a major scare “selling point” for the IPCC agenda.

Copenhagen Climate Change Conference

Published on Voltairenet.org, by Thierry Meyssan, December 20, 2009.

While the overwhelming media campaign is heralding the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference as our last chance to save the planet, Thierry Meyssan considers that, despite appearances, the issues on the table have little to do with environmental concerns but revolve around financial interests instead. According to him, what is in the works is not the creation of a new model of environment-friendly production but the revival of anglo-saxon capitalism. In this first article, he sheds light on a basic misapprehension: there is no scientific consensus emanating from the United Nations. It simply cannot happen in a forum of that nature … //  Continue Reading…

… For India, this is not just an academic issue. India is home to by far the biggest number of hungry people in the world. While the FAO projections for 2009 do not provide a detailed country-wise break-up, its 2008 report did, and in that India accounted for 252 million of the 873 million under-nourished people all over the globe in the period 2004-2006. That’s almost 30% of the world’s undernourished population, a share larger than sub-Saharan Africa and twice China’s. More worryingly, it’s a significant increase from the 210 million undernourished people India had at the beginning of the 1990s.

… So, presumably, those scientists do not belong to the “consensus.” Yet their research is forced, whether the evidence supports it or not, into Mr. Gore’s preferred global-warming template — namely, shrill alarmism. To believe it requires that one ignore the truly inconvenient facts. To take the issue of rising sea levels, these include: that the Arctic was as warm or warmer in 1940; that icebergs have been known since time immemorial; that the evidence so far suggests that the Greenland ice sheet is actually growing on average. A likely result of all this is increased pressure pushing ice off the coastal perimeter of that country, which is depicted so ominously in Mr. Gore’s movie. In the absence of factual context, these images are perhaps dire or alarming.   Continue Reading…

Du côté des médecins libéraux, susceptibles de servir de relais auprès du public, la situation n’est guère brillante, si l’on en croît un sondage Ipsos réalisé également en septembre pour le Quotidien du Médecin : à peine plus de la moitié d’entre eux se disent prêts à se faire vacciner.

It has been three years since children under five years of age and new mothers in Burundi were granted free access to medical care. When the scheme was set up, international donors pledged $40m (£24m) a year – and that figure is set to rise. It has come as a relief to many families in a country where the majority of people live on less than $1 a day.

Do you want to have these substances injected into your body or someone in your family?

Furthermore, the FDA in the U.S. admits to these ingredients being in previous vaccines!!

The current attack on the public option as “government run” health care is a completely wrong-headed argument. First off, let’s remember that government in a democracy is a good thing. Besides, with a public option, government does not “run” health care – government makes sure that everyone gets health care. Being against the public option is like wanting government out of Medicare.

Let’s be clear, our opponents have fought for decades to protect corporate health care interests. Their attack on the public option as “government run” health care is designed to distort the true meaning of reform and scare people.

Employment-Based Health Care vs. Democracy: Hidden Dimensions of Business Rule

It is characteristic of the narrow, business-dominated nature of U.S. political culture that the current American health policy debate includes no meaningful discussion of the critical roles the nation’s employment-based health insurance system play in deepening the power of bosses over workers and closing off democratic space.

Think about it. It’s bad enough that working people have to calculate the risks of going without paychecks before daring to challenge their workplace masters to any significant degree. In the U.S., uniquely among modern capitalist democracies, employees also have to factor in the chances of losing health coverage for themselves and their families along with their jobs. The common 19th century American understanding of the employer-employee relationship as a form of slavery (wage slavery) takes on new meaning in light of workers’ dependence on employers for affordable health care …  Continue Reading…

BRAZIL: Italian Immigrants Helped Forge Local Identity in the South

BENTO GONÇALVES, Brazil, Aug 17 (IPS) – In 1875 a handful of families from the Veneto region of northern Italy, fleeing hardship and hunger, took ship for the Empire of Brazil. Disembarking in Porto Alegre in the southeast, they hacked their way for over 100 kilometres through densely wooded country into the Serra Gaúcha hills, up to 800 metres above sea level.

Land, 25 to 50 hectares per family, was distributed free to these self-reliant pioneers in an area of the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul named Dona Isabel, after his daughter, by the emperor Dom Pedro II (1831-1889). This imperial policy, which followed the abolition of slavery in 1871, was aimed at populating the land and making it productive.  Continue Reading…

Foreclosure Fiasco Continues: The Bush-Obama Strategy of Throwing Billions at Banks Doesn’t Work

Americans are now $14 trillion poorer. Many who thought they were middle class have now joined the ranks of the poor.
