The Curse of Petroleum, Chemical-Based Industrial Farm Fertilizers

The Curse of Petroleum, Chemical-Based Industrial Farm Fertilizers | Destroying the Earth ande the people | Scoop.it
MAY 2013 National Geographic ▶ OUR FERTILIZED WORLD If we don’t watch out, agriculture could destroy our planet. Here’s how to grow all the food we need with fewer chemicals. N. Nitrogen. Atomic number seven. Unnoticed, untasted, it nevertheless fills our stomachs. It is the engine of agriculture, the key to plenty in our crowded, hungry world. Enter modern chemistry. Giant factories capture inert nitrogen gas from the vast stores in our atmosphere and force it into a chemical union with the hydrogen in natural gas, creating the reactive compounds that plants crave. That nitrogen fertilizer—more than a hundred million tons applied worldwide every year—fuels bountiful harvests. Yet this modern miracle exacts a price. Runaway nitrogen is suffocating wildlife in lakes and estuaries, contaminating groundwater, and even warming the globe’s climate. As a hungry world looks ahead to billions more mouths needing nitrogen-rich protein, how much clean water and air will survive our demand for fertile fields?... http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/05/fertilized-world/charles-text WATCH Emmy Award Winning 1 hr Film - University of Minnesota ▶ "TROUBLED WATERS: A MISSISSIPPI RIVER STORY" ▶ This excellent one hour documentary examines the "unintended consequences" of farming practices on water quality, soil loss and the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico. Knitting together federal energy, farm and environmental policies, the film makes a compelling case for the revamping of US agricultural policy. Through beautiful photography and inspiring narrative, the film puts deliberate emphasis on solutions and provides a hopeful blueprint for progress and positive change... http://www.rememberthispoint.com/?p=212 ▶ SCIENTIFIC PAPER ARGUES AGAINST FACTORY FARM "FEEDING THE WORLD" - MASSIVE POLLUTION OF OUR WATERWAYS http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/3995263792/scientific-paper-argues-against-factory-farms-feeding-the-world August 1, 2013 Huffington Post Green ▶ THE KILLING FIELDS: INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE, DEAD ZONE AND GENETICALLY ENGINEERED CORN http://www.huffingtonpost.com/elizabeth-kucinich/the-killing-fields-indust_b_3678515.html ▶ CONTEMPORARY INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE IS BURNING UP OUR PLANET http://sco.lt/99tRI1 ▶ MORE THAN HALF OF U.S. RIVERS ARE TOO POLLUTED TO SUPPORT LIFE http://sco.lt/5Gpafx Treehugger, October 9, 2013 ▶ ARE BIOFUELS CONTRIBUTING TO DEAD ZONES? http://www.treehugger.com/environmental-policy/are-biofuels-still-contributing-dead-zone.html ▶ FOOD OR FUEL?

The Global Chemical Biotech Cartel - An unprecedented power over world agriculture and human health | Destroying the Earth ande the people | Scoop.it
Six multinational companies dominate the agricultural input market, and they’re in cahoots. When a handful of corporations own the world’s seed, pesticide and biotech industries, they control the fate of food and farming. Between them, Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont control the global seed, pesticide and agricultural biotechnology markets.

The Story - BOTTLED LIFE – The Truth about Nestlé's Business with Water (Documentary)

The Story - BOTTLED LIFE – The Truth about Nestlé's Business with Water (Documentary) | Destroying the Earth ande the people | Scoop.it
FILM: "BOTTLED LIFE" http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/home-en.html THE STORY: "BOTTLED LIFE": To be able to sell and make money from water, you first have to own it. While the world's population continues to grow at an alarming rate, water is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity. The Swiss film "Bottled Life" documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland. Nestlé currently controls more than 70% of the world's bottled water brands, a company intent on amassing resource rights worldwide, with the aim of dominating the global water market of the future.... http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/the-story.html June 3, 2013 CBC News GROUPS WANT CAP ON NESTLE'S WATER PERMIT DURING DROUGHTS http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2013/05/30/pol-nestle-water-permit-appeal.html -- CORPORATE WATER -- August 3, 2013 Guardian THE WATER COMPANIES AND THE FOUL STENCH OF EXPLOITATION: The privatisation of water is a story of greed, incompetence and fleecing the public http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/03/water-industry-exploitation-pollution Water Justice THE GLOBAL WATER GRAB: A PRIMER http://www.tni.org/primer/global-water-grab-primer GLOBAL WATER CRISIS: UN's WATER AGENDA AT RISK OF BEING HIJACKED BY BIG BUSINESS http://sco.lt/4vQUin August 7, 2013 Project Syndicate, Brahma Chellaney THE BATTLE FOR WATER http://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/why-water-is-becoming-the-new-oil-by-brahma-chellaney June 3, 2013 Forest News Q&A: WHO OWNS THE RIGHTS TO THE WORLD/S COMMON RESOURCES? http://blog.cifor.org/16672/qa-who-owns-the-rights-to-the-worlds-common-resources/#.Ub6-u-swOic June 15, 2013 NPR WATER WARS: WHO CONTROLS THE FLOW? http://www.npr.org/2013/06/15/192034094/rivers-run-through-controversies-over-who-owns-the-water?ft=1&f=1025 July 12, 2013 Slate YOU ARE PAYING 300 TIMES MORE FOR BOTTLED WATER THAN TAP WATER http://ow.ly/mX2oR Circle of Blue - INFOGRAPHIC 10 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT WATER http://www.circleofblue.org/waternews/2009/world/infographic-ten-things-you-should-know-about-water/ September 2, 2013 IPS News WATER SCARCITY COULD DRIVE CONFLICT OR COOPERATION - UN http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/09/water-scarcity-could-drive-conflict-or-cooperation/ --------------------------BOTTLED WATER ------------------------- WATCH *** VIDEO "THE STORY OF BOTTLED WATER" « The Story of Stuff Project http://www.storyofstuff.org/movies-all/story-of-bottled-water/ BOTTLED WATER - PURE DRINK OR PURE HYPE - NRDC Investigation http://www.nrdc.org/water/drinking/bw/bwinx.asp NRDC UPDATE JULY 2013: Bottled Water http://www.nrdc.org/water/drinking/bw/bwinx.asp BOTTLED WATER: FOOD & WATER WATCH DESTROYS THE MYTHS AND GETS YOU THE FACTS http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/water/bottled/ Environmental Working Group WHAT'S IN YOUR BOTTLED WATER - BESIDES WATER? http://www.ewg.org/research/ewg-bottled-water-scorecard-2011 THE LIFE OF A PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE: A JOURNEY BEGINS http://sco.lt/5BTtMv June 5, 2013 The Daily Sheeple NESTLE'S MARK UP WATER 52 MILLION PERCENT WHILE PATENTING BREAST MILK AND MEDICINAL PLANTS http://www.thedailysheeple.com/nestles-wet-dream-they-mark-up-water-53-million-percent_062013 The Daily Green: WHY BOTTLED WATER WON'T PROTECT YOU FROM ROGUE PHARMACEUTICALS http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/community-news/bottled-water-pharmaceuticals-47031112 Environmental News Network: BOTTLED WATER NOT THE ANSWER: DRINKING WATER CONTAMINATED BY PHARMACEUTICALS http://www.enn.com/health/article/32699 BIG PHARMA DRUGS FOUND IN RIVERS, CHANGES FISH BEHAVIOR - WITH POTENTIAL EVOLUTIONARY AND ECOLOGICAL IMPACTS http://sco.lt/8YWfuz The Associated Press Investigation: PHARMACEUTICALS FOUND IN DRINKING WATER, AFFECTING WILDLIFE AND HUMANS http://hosted.ap.org/specials/interactives/pharmawater_site/index.html June 5, 2013 Washington Post IOWA CITIES STRUGGLE AS FARM RUNOFF CAUSES NITRATE LEVELS TO SOAR IN DRINKING WATER http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/iowa-cities-struggle-as-farm-runoff-causes-nitrate-levels-to-soar-in-drinking-water/2013/06/05/7c1a0450-cdae-11e2-8573-3baeea6a2647_story.html NEW RESEARCH: GMO FOOD FAR WORSE THAT WE THINK - THEIR TOXIC CHEMICAL COCKTAILS http://www.activistpost.com/2012/02/new-research-gmo-food-far-worse-than-we.html June 15, 2013 Digital Journal NEW METHOD FOR DETECTING WASTE MEDICINES IN RIVER WATER http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/352342 WATER IN THE ANTHROPOCENE http://sco.lt/856DXl

Organic food – What is an ‘organic’ label really worth? | Destroying the Earth ande the people | Scoop.it
July 12, 2013 Ethical Corporation Supermarkets in North America and Europe are overflowing with organic-labelled fruit, vegetables, eggs and meats. More than 80 countries have organic standards and products carry one or more of 200 seals, logos and certification claims. But are consumers able to make informed choices?

Contemporary monoculture agriculture is burning up our planet

Contemporary monoculture agriculture is burning up our planet | Destroying the Earth ande the people | Scoop.it
A growing number of organic consumers, natural health advocates and climate hawks are taking a more comprehensive look at the fundamental causes of global warming. And its led them to this sobering conclusion: Modern, industrial, monocrop farming are burning up our planet. How did they reach this conclusion? First, by taking a more inclusive look at the scientific data on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions—not just carbon dioxide (CO2), but also methane and nitrous oxide. Next, by doing a full accounting of the fossil fuel consumption and emissions of the entire industrial food and farming cycle, including inputs, equipment, production, processing, distribution, heating, cooling and waste. And finally, by factoring in the indirect impacts of contemporary agriculture, which include deforestation and wetlands destruction.,,, http://www.nationofchange.org/how-factory-farming-contributes-global-warming-1358786945 September 3, 2013 SciDevNet FOOD PRODUCTION NEEDS A NEW VISION: FARMING AND KNOWLEDGE MONOCULTURES ARE MISCONCEIVED http://www.scidev.net/global/agriculture/opinion/farming-and-knowledge-monocultures-are-misconceived.html August 12, 2013 AlJazeera America CONTAMINATION CASES RENEW FEAR OVER GLOBALIZED FOOD SUPPLY http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2013/8/12/contamination-casesrenewfearsoverfoodsafety.html -- WATCH -- VIDEO: HARVESTING JUSTICE; TRANSFORMING THE FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN IN THE USA http://sco.lt/668m5x SCIENTIFIC PAPER ARGUES AGAINST FACTORY FARM "FEEDING THE WORLD" - MASSIVE POLLUTION OF OUR WATERWAYS http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/3995263792/scientific-paper-argues-against-factory-farms-feeding-the-world February 18, 2013 Common Dreams INDUSTRIAL AG TRIGGER DEVASTATING 'WEB' OF POLLUTION http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/02/18-2 PESTICIDES FOR BIG AG ARE KILLING OUR PLANET: DECIMATING POLLINATORS, DRAGONFLIES AND OTHER AQUATIC INSECTS -- AND YOU http://sco.lt/5XzNlx September 17, 2010 SciDevNet PESTICIDE RISKS NEED MORE RESEARCH AND REGULATION http://www.scidev.net/global/agriculture/news/pesticide-risks-need-more-research-and-regulation.html MORE THAN HALF OF U.S. RIVERS ARE TOO POLLUTED TO SUPPORT LIFE http://sco.lt/5Gpafx March 20, 2013 - Pew Health Initiatives NEARLY 30 MILLION POUNDS OF ANTIBIOTICS WERE SOLD BY BIG PHARMA FOR USE IN FOOD ANIMALS http://www.pewhealth.org/reports-analysis/issue-briefs/washington-food-leaders-urge-sen-murray-to-shine-a-light-on-industrial-farms-antibiotic-use-85899461346 STOP FACTORY FARMS FROM POLLUTING OUR WATERWAYS WITH DRUGS http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/3643934709/groups-file-motion-to-stop-factory-farms-from-using-waterways-as-dumping-grounds THE CURSE OF PETROLEUM, CHEMICAL-BASED FERTILIZERS http://sco.lt/4iAdaz SHORT VIDEO: THE SEVEN MYTHS OF INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE http://sco.lt/8adA9p August 29, 2013 Global Possibilities THE "GUARANTEED INCOME" RACKET FOR USA BIG AGRICULTURE: U.S. GOVERNMENT PAID OUT $17 BILLION FOR OVER-PLANTED, WEATHER-WITHERED CROPS LAST YEAR — Desiccated corn and sun-scorched soybeans have been in high supply lately — and we’re paying through the nose for them http://www.globalpossibilities.org/u-s-government-paid-17-billion-for-weather-withered-crops-last-year/ September 4, 2013 NPR THERE WILL BE NO COMPETITION: HOW BIG AGRICULTURE AND USDA IS EASING OUT SMALL FARMERS WITH NEW FOOD SAFETY RULES http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2013/09/04/218642746/small-farmers-in-new-england-fear-new-food-safety-rules August 30, 2013 Sustainable Pulse: THE NEVER-ENDING TREADMILL OF MORE AND STRONGER PESTICIDE: -----BIOTECH INDUSTRY STARTS NEW ERA OF PESTICIDE-PROMOTING AGRICULTURE http://sustainablepulse.com/2013/08/30/biotech-industry-starts-new-era-of-pesticide-promoting-agriculture/#.UigyP7zc-RQ Earth Policy Institute RISING TEMPERATURES, RISING FOOD PRICES: FULL PLANET, EMPTY PLATES - THE NEW GEOPOLITICS OF FOOD SCARCITY http://www.earth-policy.org/books/fpep/fpepch8 AGRICULTURE CAUSES 80% OF TROPICAL DEFORESTATION - THE TERRIBLE PRICE WE PAY http://sco.lt/8DCl1d July 30, 2013 Environmental Working Group REPORT: 7.2 MILLION ACRES OF WETLANDS AND FRAGILE LAND GO UNDER THE PLOW http://www.ewg.org/release/72-million-acres-wetlands-and-fragile-land-go-under-plow --- WATCH -- VIDEO: "THE FOOD AND CLIMATE CONNECTION" http://vimeo.com/11923174 November 1, 2012 Mongabay FROM 'FERTILIZER TO FORK': FOOD ACCOUNTS FOR A QUARTER OF THE WORLD'S GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS http://news.mongabay.com/2012/1101-hance-agriculture-greenhouse-gases.htm ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FUTURENOMICS: DITCHING OUR OUTMODED AND FOSSILISED MONOCROP ECONOMIC PARADIGM http://sco.lt/5hpBar July 1, 2013 ScieDevNet FOOD SECURITY NEEDS 'MORE HOLISTIC' AGRICULTURE http://www.scidev.net/global/farming/news/food-security-needs-more-holistic-agriculture.html THE NEXT GREEN REVOLUTION - HEALTHY ECOSYSTEMS WITHOUT FOSSIL FUELS, LASHINGS OF PESTICIDES AND MONOCROPS http://sco.lt/7H8QPR January 13, 2012 Grist LEXICON OF SUSTAINABILITY: BIODIVERSITY vs MONOCULTURE http://grist.org/sustainable-food/2012-01-13-lexicon-of-sustainability-biodiviersity-vs-monoculture/ ORIGINAL FARMING: BEFORE BIG AG CORPORATE FARMING CONSUMED US ******A NEW GENERATION OF FARMERS IS NURTURING NATURE AS WELL AS CROPS: BEYOND BIG MONOCULTURE AGRICULTURE http://sco.lt/85DEgr August 1, 2013 Science Daily EXISTING CROPLAND COULD FEED FOUR BILLION MORE BY DROPPING BIOFUELS AND ANIMAL FEED http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/08/130801125704.htm BIOFUELS: FOOD OR FUEL?
