Genetic manipulation and patenting of life forms to gain worldwide control over food production.
From 1996 – 2004, worldwide GMO plantings expanded to 167 million acres, a 40-fold increase on 25% of global arable land. Over two-thirds of US farmland grows GMOs, more than 106 million acres. Argentina has 34 million acres, and production is expanding in Brazil, China, Canada, South Africa, Indonesia, Spain, Eastern Europe, and wherever else Ag giants have clout. We want it all, everywhere, and have complicit government allies to help us, here and abroad.
Monsanto Takes Ownership of Public Water Resources
Over the past century, global water supplies have been contaminated with the full gamut of Monsanto’s chemicals, including PCBs, dioxin and glyophosate (Roundup). So now the company, seeing a profitable market niche, is taking control of the public water resources they polluted, filtering it, and selling it back to the people. In short, Monsanto is making a double profit by polluting the world’s scarce freshwater resources, privately taking ownership of that water, filtering it, and selling it back to those who can afford to pay for it.
The Super maize
“Super maize” with the potential to not only ensure an unending era of cheap food but to make the world’s food supply far more nutritious, while providing low cost energy, reducing environmental degradation, and promoting sustainable agriculture; May have been discussed by G20 leaders according to to Mark Henderson, science editor of the UK-based The Times.
According to Monsanto’s CEO, Hugh Grant, speaking on the Super maize, “While not in anyway a silver bullet, this is a remarkable breakthrough in terms of putting plentiful ultra-nutritious food on the world’s table while eliminating environmental overload and petroleum dependence….”
Professor Pingo Detritus, the project chief, added: “This breakthrough is of such monumental importance, that it’s vital that the G20 leaders now unite behind (it) and start to remove all regulatory barriers.” Critics need to back off as well.
And again, everyone will be part of a mass human experiment where the result may vary a long list of side effects and are irreversible.
