Episode-613- Listener Feedback on Genetically Modified Organisms

GMO Food is Far More Sinister Than Most Realize

The concept of GMO’s (generically modified organisms) is largely misunderstood and I feel somewhat hyped as both overly safe and overly dangerous by both sides of the debate.    Today we dig deeply into this issue to fully understand the dangers of GMO’s including the often missed larger implications and impact on the biosphere and system level life webs.

Also remember today is the last day of our MSB special.  You can get your first year of MSB today for only 30 dollars.  Just join the MSB and use the discount code “positive” and get your first year for only 30 dollars.  See this post for more info on that.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • Is GMO the issue or is what they are spraying on the GMO’s the answer
  • How is a GMO different from a natural hybrid
  • Are GMO’s chemically different from non GMO’s
  • Is there a new micro pathogen connected to GMO’s (I am not sure yet)
  • Are GMOs and their related herbicides linked to breast cancer (a top oncologist thinks so)
  • Will GMO alfalfa cross pollinate and infect other fields, experts say it is a certainty
  • Why may our farmers not be able to ever stop growing GMOs now (anyone else think about this yet)
  • What is “bent grass” why should you care
  • Should we require an IQ test to be a politician (wait till you hear this)
  • Why GMOs threaten us even when they are not “food crops”
  • What is bioaccumulation and how does it move through “trophic” levels

    Episode-348- Listener Feedback 1-04-10

    Today we have some really interesting listener questions and feedback.  We will discuss subjects like casting lead bullets, The Appleseed Project, Permaculture, harvesting roadkill and Monsanto’s role in the global warming scam.

    I will also dedicate today’s show to James Kavanaugh who passed away on December 29th after a long illness.  James Kavanaugh was an amazing writer and among my favorite books by him are “God Lives“, “A Modern Priest Looks at His Outdated Church” and “There Are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves“.  Many of you many have never head of James Kavanaugh but when I was 21 and just out of the Army seeking answers his work influenced my life.  I will read two short passages by Mr. Kavanaugh in his memory today, listen and I am sure you will see how his voice has been speaking to you via my podcast for a very long time.

    Episode-220- 9 Underrated Global Threats

    Today we take a look at 9 underrated threats, I refer to them as underrated because they don’t really get discussed in main stream media or when they are discussed no deep understanding of them, their historical significance or their interconnected nature.

    Today we discuss the following threats and what they might mean to use in the future.

    • China’s move to create a “big ten” and own the global automotive industry
    • Europe’s massive immigration problems
    • The effect of Monsanto and other agricultural giants imposing seed patents in third world nations
    • The fact that China and Russia have been buying up gold this year
    • China’s big move in buying up contracts on exports, natural resources, mining companies, manufacturing facilities and more
    • The depletion of global fossil aquifers
    • China’s move to basically own Africa and why they could very well pull it off
    • The global tax system based on the Global Warming Scam
    • How an economic recovery at the wrong time could long term be a huge threat to the US and Western Europe

    Episode-162- HR 875 Targets Small Farms and More

    Today we take a look at a new proposed bill currently in committee in the House called HR 875.  There is a lot of resistance to this bill (with good reason) but there is some hype as well.

    Does HR 875 really say a home gardener can’t grow an organic tomato in their back yard?  Does it say that home gardeners are subject to inspection by Federal Agents?  The answer to both of these questions is a big no.  That said there is still a LOT wrong with this proposed legislation, not the least of which is that the sponsor of the bill, Rep. Rosa DeLauro, is married to a lobbyist for Monsanto!

    This bill places huge government power into a single agency, creates a huge bureaucracy for small and micro farms and small scale livestock producers.  It clearly steps on states rights and further it consolidates power and hence the potential for mistakes, abuse and incompetence into a single orginazation.

    Further it is being championed by Monsanto and other big agriculture companies that stand to profit hugely but requirements to use specific chemicals, pesticides, etc.

    However the opposition is hyping some other aspects that are not in the bill such as shutting down the home gardener and ignoring the exemption for growers selling “direct to the consumer”.  This is a bad bill, we should try to kill it but if we hype it that is a big mistake.  There is enough bad here that we don’t need to be hypesters of alarmists.
