Perhaps now we're discovering our answer. As North Carolina spawned the lunch counter sit-ins that put the Civil Rights movement directly in the faces of ordinary Americans 55 years ago, the state is also giving America an effective model for social justice organizing in today’s society – the Forward Together movement. - See more at: http://www.occupy.com/article/moving-forward-together-north-carolina-leading-next-civil-rights-movement#sthash.ypkAmwo5.dpuf

It is often difficult to judge how our actions and their impact on the environment are likely to affect others. What is clear is that we are the only species with the power to destroy the earth. Birds and insects have no such power, nor does any other mammal. And yet if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, we also have the capacity to protect it. I believe we have an urgent responsibility to do so.

Regenerating Our Soils Is Key for Saving Mankind

Regenerating Our Soils Is Key for Saving Mankind | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
 There’s no question your health is directly related to the quality of the food you eat, and that the quality of the food in turn is dependent on the health of the soil in which it is grown.     In her book, The Soil Will Save Us, Kristin Ohlson describes the complex relationship between the soil and the food we eat.     Kristin grew up in a small town in Sacramento Valley, California.

Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets. Fast food is big, but supermarkets are bigger – earning $4 trillion globally. They have tremendous power over the agricultural system. Over the past 3 decades they have drained revenue from their supply chain leaving farmworkers in poverty and forced to work under subhuman conditions. Yet many take no responsibility for this.

Russia's Economic Self-Reliance: Yes to Hemp, No to GMO

Russia's Economic Self-Reliance: Yes to Hemp, No to GMO | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
All new is well forgotten old. A promising venture, initiated by the Russian government in 2013, was the reappearance of hemp production in eastern Siberia – Buryat Republic and Altay. Historically speaking, Russian economy leant on cannabis, known as pen’ka, which was used in local industries as well as exported to Europe and the Americas: international trade in hemp profited Russians for centuries. Lately Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service has confirmed its plans for advanced farming of cannabis hybrids low in THC. Currently Russian hemp is processed for multiple purposes, including clothing, health care and defence.

USDA Claims Pesticide Residues in Food Is Safe—Here’s Why They’re Wrong | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 60 percent of herbicides, 90 percent of fungicides, and 30 percent of insecticides are also carcinogenic. All of these toxins are permitted on conventional farms, and any number of them can end up on your plate when you conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables.

Europe’s Energy Independence Drive Goes off the Rails

Europe’s Energy Independence Drive Goes off the Rails | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it

A year ago, Russia’s lunge into Ukraine seemed to be focusing European minds on the dangers of depending on Moscow for their energy supplies, pushing countries across the continent to scramble onto the shale-gas bandwagon in a quest to copy U.S. success and move towards having the ability to produce all the energy they need on their own.

But now, after a series of disappointments from one end of Europe to the other, Europe’s shale dreams seem to have all but evaporated. And that makes it increasingly unlikely that Europe will be able to reap the kind of gas-fired benefits that have rejuvenated sectors of the U.S. economy and greatly reduced American reliance on foreign energy. That will have implications for both Europe’s economic competitiveness and its energy security at a time when a sluggish economy and a snarling Russia worry European leaders in equal measure. by Keith Johnson
