Monsanto plans massive biotech experiment in the US

Monsanto plans massive biotech experiment in the US | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
The US government has for the first time signed off on a large-scale experiment involving genetically modified crops, which will lead to biotech big shot Monsanto introducing an engineered corn seed across America from South Dakota to Texas.

More likely, however, is that a success will mean revitalization in terms of Monsanto’s profits..

(@pdjmoo: more pesticides, more farmland pollution, more loss of biodiversity, more small farm degradation. Just like the rest of their GMO juggernaut, short-term profits for long-term toxic pollution of our lands, insects and human health. So what else is new....Monsanto writes its' own ticket with the USDA and governments for global domination of farmland and food supply ...@pdjmoo)

The "Fast Food Nation" author handily debunks the myth that good food is elitist.

I call it the two-food-systems solution: a niche local-organic one for the few willing to pay up; a dominant chemical-driven one for everyone else. In essence, that model describes what has evolved here in the United States over the past 20 years: vibrant islands of farmers markets and CSAs in a vast swamp chemically produced calories.

Dow and Monsanto Join Forces to Poison America's Heartland

Dow and Monsanto Join Forces to Poison America's Heartland | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

In a match that some would say was made in hell, the nation's two leading producers of agrochemicals have joined forces in a partnership to reintroduce the use of the herbicide 2,4-D, one half of the infamous defoliant Agent Orange, which was used by American forces to clear jungle during the Vietnam War. These two biotech giants have developed a weed management program that, if successful, would go a long way toward a predicted doubling of harmful herbicide use in America's corn belt during the next decade.

By WuW Writer Jack Adam Weber I cannot help but ponder the metaphor of weeds.

First I’d like to give a brief overview of GMOs and genetic engineering. GMO is a Genetically Modified Organism, most of them foods. Several multinational corporations produce GMOs; a few of the largest are Monsanto, Dow Agrosicence, and Syngenta. These companies, among others, are collectively referred to as biotechnology companies, or simply “Biotech.”

Do pesticides cause CCD? This is a question that beekeepers have been asking ever since CCD hit the na­tional scene in 2007. In a series of articles in the American Bee Journal, Randy Oliver has done an exceptional job of distilling much of the recent research results into a meaningful update for beekeepers relative to this ques­tion (Oliver, R. 2010; See also Scientific Beekeeping.com).

The Great Food Robbery, How Corporations Control Food, Grab Land and Destroy the Climate

The Great Food Robbery, Fahamu Books

By putting profits first, corporations destroy local food systems, exploit labour and damage the environment. This book exposes the root of this destructive problem.

The global food system is in profound crisis. More than a billion people suffer from hunger, and their numbers are rising faster than the global population. Yet more than enough food is produced to feed everybody in the world. At the same time we are heading deeper into a global climate crisis, for which the industrial food system is to a large extent to blame. Meanwhile corporations are grabbing huge areas of land and water systems in poor countries, and displacing rural communities.

The world's water supply is being strained by climate change and the growing food, energy and sanitary needs of a fast-growing population, according to a United Nations study that calls for a radical rethink of policies to manage competing claims.

A "silent revolution" has taken place underground, the report warns, as the amount of water sucked from below the surface has tripled in the past 50 years, removing a buffer against drought.

AFRICA FOR SALE: Ethiopia: A battle for land and water - "Villagization" VIDEO

Prime furtile land is being sold to foreign investors for food "export" leaving millions facing endemic hunger. The Ethiopian government has launched a program called “villagization.” - forcefully removing indigenous peoples off furtile lands for foreign investors. Officials told the people here would be relocated to areas with better access to clean water, health and education. But they were forced to move, under false pretenses, from lands that they have lived and farmed for generations.
