Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Good many ads with this, but it's an interesting article. OK we keep real butter... I usually try to get organic but this in not.... just tried this in my coffee... doesn't taste bad at all but I might not add it to each cup. One thing I know is that a bit of butter and coffee do not normally hurt most people. So why not try this?

OCEANS: Coral loss quickly erodes seafloor, threatens coasts — USGS

OCEANS: Coral loss quickly erodes seafloor, threatens coasts — USGS | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
Coastal communities are already losing the coral reefs that help protect them from waves, erosion and hazardous weather, according to a new study from the U.S. Geological Survey.

The study, published today in Biogeosciences, found that the seafloor is eroding far faster than expected in five large coral reef tracts in Florida, the Caribbean and Hawaii. Researchers already knew many reefs have fewer corals, but today's study is the first to show the widespread effects of that degradation on water depths.

4 Tactics Used by Monsanto to Undermine Potential Link Between Glyphosate and Cancer

4 Tactics Used by Monsanto to Undermine Potential Link Between Glyphosate and Cancer | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
Emails unsealed in a California lawsuit last week reveal that agribusiness giant Monsanto engaged in activities aimed at undermining efforts to evaluate a potential link between glyphosate—the active ingredient of the company's popular herbicide Roundup—and cancer. The documents reveal the company's plans to seed the scientific literature with a ghostwritten study and its efforts to delay and prevent U.S. government assessments of the product's safety.

3 key steps to end corruption

3 key steps to end corruption | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
As an increasingly integrated global community, we now stand at a crossroads. The United Nations Millennium Development Goals are reaching their conclusion in 2015, and discussions are advancing on the targets that will shape the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda. The outcome of these discussions will be the identification of the core areas that require global attention to ensure the achievement of sustainable development. I am firmly convinced that for sustainable development to take hold, renewed attention and focus must be given to curbing all forms and manifestations of corruption worldwide.

Trump administration proclamations celebrating the repeal of pollution regulations have become a common occurrence in Washington. The list includes a rule to prohibit coal companies from polluting streams, a cap on power plant carbon emissions and lifting a moratorium on new federal coal leases.

To Stop an Endless Cycle of Corruption, History Says Fix the System, Not the Politician

To Stop an Endless Cycle of Corruption, History Says Fix the System, Not the Politician | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

"It was too easy, the muckraker Lincoln Steffens began to argue, to believe that bad politicians were just immoral people. Instead he asked his massive readership to look at the structure rather than the individual, to think about the warped systems that enabled political corruption, and to consider the ways angry voters inadvertently encouraged behavior they condemned."
