In addition to the theft and corruption, how many lies are we caught in, how much deception?
Just for one quick tour of "Upside Down in Agriculture and Global Warming." Some might call it "Insane Injustice"
Obama gives ADM millions to capture carbon in projects ADM designed itself.
How much fossil fuel does this company use to produce its industrial products, to run its massive industrial operations, to transport its products around the world, to keep the lights on in PR companies that fight organic farming (which is a solution to global warming), to fly its lobbyists around to end up with such a give away? Doesn't industrial ag contribute 40% to global warming?
When a farmer does everything right ....
While Mother Nature News calls unwanted regulatory threat "," the reality is that the Amish will be subject to rules from desk-sitters at the EPA who will "decide" how to run their beautiful farms. MNN refers to the heaps of manure generated from Amish farms, apparently with no idea it has value and isn't contaminated.
The EPA is walking a fine line between enforcing clean-up practices while maintaining a respectful understanding of the culture. ...
[Pause for what was just slipped in there by the EPA. is code for using GE-seeds and pesticides. "Plant the seeds, blanket spray pesticides, no need to weed." The corporations will employ PR to deny the superweeds. ]
Many of these changes would be underwritten by federal grants ("The money has been lucrative for local agricultural companies ..."), but persuading the Amish to change their farming habits with government money will be difficult.
So Obama, under cover of carbon sequestering, is actually yet again betraying sustainable agriculture by pushing GMOs on the Amish, the epitome of organic farming. This fact is hidden by NY Times and Mother Nature News articles suggesting the EPA is sensitive to the Amish, while in reality forcing them to pay for changes on their farms they may not be able to afford and then threatening them with fines and penalties if they don't betray their own traditions. These regulations are for the sake of Monsanto which Obama serves over and over again (putting them at the FDA, the USDA, USAID, trade, and apparently now, the EPA is working for them, too).
Though they have been doing right by the world, they won't be allowed to design projects that harmonize with nature, but will have to pay for changes and then pay fines and penalties if they don't go along with government imposed regulations that do not fit their farms and threaten their families' lives (and others as well) through GM corn now linked to organ failure, and GM soy that causes sterility and hair to grow in the mouth. That is in addition to still borns, birth defects, sterility, and cancers from pesticides.An Amish farmEasy to see now why farmers are opposed to the Clean Air Act or Cap and Trade.Cap farmers and give more Trade to the corporations.The corporate fix is in with these bills and the money keeps rolling in from government. The corporations are writing the government regulations that are surreptitiously mandating their dangerous corporate products which the public rejects, using sustainable-sounding terms like "no till."Amish farmers are being targeted for doing right for generations and now will be financially punished for trying to continue to be good stewards of God's gift of nature.Does it get anymore anti-trust and corrupt than this?
