Dr. Mercola writes:
“The global food price index hit its highest recorded level in March 2022, rising 12.6% in a month. What are the long-term answers to this problem?Inflation was already ramping up well before Russia went into Ukraine, thanks to the uncontrolled printing of fiat currencies that occurred in response to the COVID pandemic. Governments’ COVID responses have also wreaked havoc with global supply chains, causing disruptions that continue to this day.Ukraine has ceased exports of wheat, oats, millet, buckwheat and cattle, and Russia has banned exports of fertilizer.Together, Russia and Belarus provide nearly 40% of the global exports of potash, a key fertilizer ingredient. Russia also exports 48% of the global ammonium nitrate, and combined with Ukraine, they export 28% of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium fertilizers. Experts are now predicting fertilizer prices may double as a result of Russia’s ban on fertilizer exports.The long-term answer lies in regenerative biodynamic farming, which does not use any chemical inputs.”

OCA’s Political Director, Alexis Baden-Mayer, author of the investigative series, “Gain-of-Function Hall of Shame,” exposing the perpetrators of COVID-19 and the Biological “Dual-Use” Weapons Complex, has written a new alarming update on how America’s funders of the reckless Wuhan lab (Fauci, Gates, the Pentagon) have been surreptitiously funding experiments in the U.S., Europe, and the Ukraine that could easily lead to a new pandemic, weaponizing the H5N1 Bird Flu—deadly to poultry and humans alike, but up until now barely transmissible to humans. As Alexis points out, we must put an end to the ongoing madness of genetically engineering and weaponizing viruses and pathogens, stopping the next pandemic before it starts, by strengthening and enforcing the Biological Weapons Convention of 1972.As Alexis writes:
“The 1972 Biological Weapons Convention could and should be enforced, but so far it hasn’t been. It merely changed biological weapons research from overt to covert.While it is still largely funded and carried out by the Pentagon (and the CIA, which the New York Times reported was involved in anthrax research prior to the 2001 attacks), biological weapons research today is draped with the fig leaf of Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases funding to maintain the image of peaceful, public-health purposes… President Joe Biden’s 2023 military budget proposal—more than $2 billion per day—contains a massive amount of money that could be used for biological weapons.”

In this detailed report the Natural Resources Defense Council examines the environmentally destructive, climate-destabilizing agricultural policies of the US government and make case for a transition to more agroecological, regenerative policies and subsidies. NRDC writes:
“Agriculture currently accounts for 10 percent [editor’s note: it is actually much higher than this] of the United States’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Within agriculture, the largest source of GHG emissions are industrial farming practices that degrade soil health, pollute waterways, and harm biodiversity, followed by industrial animal production at confined animal feeding operations. Industrial agriculture is part of the climate problem. Regenerative agriculture, on the other hand, provides a path for agriculture to be part of the climate solution. Regenerative agriculture, a land management philosophy that focuses on farming and ranching in harmony with nature, presents a contrast to the dominant industrial agricultural model. By using principles and practices that build soil health, regenerative farmers and ranchers sequester carbon, clean waterways, and protect wildlife.
Currently, federal agricultural policy disproportionately serves industrial agriculture over regenerative agriculture. To learn more about how we can change policy to advance regenerative agriculture, we interviewed 113 farmers and ranchers across the country. Our interviewees told us what regenerative agriculture means to them, the opportunities to bring more acres under regenerative management, and the barriers standing in the way. They stressed that the larger food system needs reform to enable more regenerative agriculture and to support existing regenerative growers.”

Pesticide Action Network warns us that the extremely toxic PFAS “Forever Chemicals” are not just lurking in fire-fighting chemicals, Teflon pans, and fire-resistant furniture, but in the toxic sewage sludge routinely applied on non-organic farms across the U.S., and increasing in the pesticides sprayed on conventional farms. As PAN writes: “Like PFOAs, the now-banned chemicals that PFAS have replaced, PFAS and other fluorinated chemicals are associated with extraordinarily long breakdown times — sometimes thousands of years — which has led to their informal classification as ‘forever chemicals.’ The longevity of PFAS in the environment means that remediation is both urgently needed and prohibitively expensive. When it comes to PFAS, there are also clear and concerning connections with pesticides and ag policy…” Yet another reason why health and environmentally-conscious consumers need to purchase and consume organic food today, and every day.Learn more: PFAS and Pesticides
“The Earth is alive. Terra Madre, Gaia, Pachamama, Vasundhara… The Living Earth is a self-organised, self-regulating living system. She is autopoeitic, writing the poetry of life, creating the symphony of life, through the harmony of every participating living organism, from the microbes to the mammals.
From the molecule, to the cell, to the organism, to ecosystems, and the planet, life is based on non-separation, harmony and quantum coherence. Self-organised resonance with other beings where self-organised.”Read More: Mother Earth is Alive!
Civil Eats reports:
“When you’re told there’s a simple solution to a very complex problem, you’re probably not getting the whole story. Today’s meat consumption is a good example. Meat and dairy are increasingly under the world’s microscope as livestock—which rely on huge quantities of feed crops and occupy nearly 80 percent of global farmland—accounts for between 14 percent and 30 percent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It’s also the source of more frequent antimicrobial-resistant pathogens, and much of the global livestock and seafood industries have been exposed for unsafe and abusive working conditions.This complex web of problems requires more than one answer. And yet “alternative proteins”—from plant-based to lab-grown “fake” meat and dairy—are being promoted as a simple solution. Products like the Impossible Burger, with its 15-plus ingredients, are now in supermarkets and fast food establishments worldwide. Lab-grown chicken has been on the market in Singapore since late 2020 and will likely soon be approved in the U.S. and elsewhere. These products are being sold as a “win-win-win” for animals, people, and the planet. According to Patrick Brown, the outspoken CEO of Impossible Foods, livestock is ‘the most destructive technology on earth,’ and meat substitutes are ‘the last chance to save the planet.’“

Jeffrey Sachs writes in Common Dreams:
“By prioritizing peace instead of NATO enlargement, the US would rally the support of much more of the world and thereby help to bring peace to Ukraine and security and stability for the entire world. The two-pronged US strategy, to help Ukraine overcome the Russian invasion by imposing tough sanctions and by supplying Ukraine's military with sophisticated armaments, is likely to fall short. What is needed is a peace deal, which may be within reach. Yet to reach a deal, the United States will have to compromise on NATO, something Washington has so far rejected.”

“The Wuhan Institute of Virology has the right to ask a partnering lab in the U.S. to destroy all records of their work, according to a legal document obtained by U.S. Right to Know.A memorandum of understanding between the Wuhan lab and the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch states that each lab can ask the other to return or 'destroy' any so-called 'secret files' — any communications, documents, data or equipment resulting from their collaboration — and ask that they wipe any copies.'The party is entitled to ask the other to destroy and/or return the secret files, materials and equipment without any backups,' it states.This right is retained even after the agreement’s five year term ends in October 2022. All documents are eligible for destruction under the agreement’s broad language.”

Food Tank reports:
“Households are some of the biggest contributors to food waste in the United States, according to research from ReFED.The organization reports that households generate 30 million surplus food tons, or 37 percent, of all food waste in the U.S. Almost half ended up in landfills, where it emits harmful greenhouse gases that contribute to the climate crisis.'The number one of source of food going to waste is actually us, consumers, all 329 million of us in our homes, letting food go bad in our homes, not managing it well,' says Dana Gunders, Executive Director of ReFED.Thankfully, there are steps that everyone can take to tackle this problem, starting in their own homes. Through better shopping habits or experimentation in the kitchen, it is possible to cut food waste and support the health of the environment.”
