Scaling up regenerative and organic food and farming will require not only consumer awareness, market demand, and farmer innovation, but also fundamental policy change, accompanied by a massive increase in public and private funding.
If we are going to reverse our catastrophic public health and environmental crises, and make family farm-scale agriculture economically viable again, we have no choice but to educate and mobilize.
We must step up the pressure on public officials to stop subsidizing bad food, which is low in nutrients and contains multiple contaminants and bad fats. We must force them to stop subsidizing degenerate farming and livestock management practices, which rely on the intensive use of toxic chemicals, fossil fuels, factory farms, and GMOs.
Fortunately, there’s a way forward. We are fortunate to have policy experts such as Mackenzie Feldman, founder and executive director of Herbicide-Free Campus, and John Ikerd, author and professor emeritus of agricultural economics at the University of Missouri, speaking out on behalf of the Thrive Agenda (the latest incarnation of the Green New Deal) and our growing Regeneration Movement.

Now that it’s been a year, it’s time to openly examine the data and evaluate the effectiveness of the pandemic response by public health officials. How well has the public's health been protected during the pandemic? What’s worked and what hasn’t? What's missing? Was there any willful misconduct by federal agencies or ways that they could have been more progressive with safety measures recommended?
In this conversation with Dr. Henry Ealy, OCA International Director Ronnie Cummins and Political Director Alexis Baden-Mayer dig into the data to answer these questions.
Dr. Ealy has been tracking COVID data and science for more than a year now and leads a team of researchers nationwide who have amassed more than 20,000 hours of research, producing five published papers, including, "COVID-19 Data Collection, Comorbidity & Federal Law: A Historical Retrospective," which outlines a specific timeline of events surrounding the CDC's change in death certificate reporting and a comparison of death stats, published in the journal Science, Public Health Policy & the Law.
Ronnie has written a book with Dr. Joseph Mercola, "The Truth About COVID-19: Exposing The Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal."

As OCA and Regeneration International never tire of pointing out, we can reverse climate change, restore degraded ecosystems, regenerate public health, and eliminate rural poverty by adopting and scaling up the best practices of organic and regenerative agriculture and land use.
Did you know that expanding regenerative and organic practices on just 5-10% of our agricultural lands, in combination with alternative energy and massive reforestation, can solve a number of our most pressing global problems?
Discover more about this exciting and hopeful roadmap for global transformation in Regeneration International’s latest article.

What would it take to bring the world to net zero carbon emissions?
Reducing fossil fuel use as quickly as possible is one piece of the puzzle—but another equally important strategy is using the power of regenerative agriculture, reforestation, and ecosystem restoration to sequester existing atmospheric carbon into the soil.
One inspiring initiative leading reforestation efforts is the Trillion Tree Campaign, a global project with the goal of planting one trillion trees through local reforestation projects worldwide.
The Trillion Tree Campaign functions as a hub that connects individuals and organizations wishing to sponsor the planting of trees with a multitude of community-based reforestation projects across the globe.
The campaign is an expansion of the previous Billion Tree Campaign, and is a continuation of the work of the late Nobel Peace Prize laureate Wangari Maathai, founder of the Kenya-based Green Belt Movement, which “empowers communities, particularly women, to conserve the environment and improve livelihoods” through community-led reforestation projects.
The reforestation efforts empowered by The Trillion Tree Campaign are a powerful force for regeneration on many levels—in addition to addressing climate change by sequestering carbon, they also restore biodiversity, clean water supplies, produce regenerative food, feed, and fiber, and provide a multitude of other social and economic benefits to communities.

In her 2008 book, “End of America,” Naomi Wolf outlined the 10 steps those in power use to close down democracies. Sadly, she writes today, as governments use the pandemic to justify the suppression of civil rights, America is now in the throes of “Step Ten.”
As Wolf points out: “The new biofascism, very much driven by Big Tech leaders, is a war against human beings and the qualities that make us human.”

During the recent Growing Stronger national conference on organic agriculture, André Leu and Ronnie Cummins hosted a conversation, titled Game-Changing Agroforestry & Holistic Livestock Management System, about the transformative power of regenerative agave systems.
They discussed the global potential of the Mexico-based agave agroforestry project, Greening the Desert, to spread across North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Oceania and regenerate a major portion of the earth’s semi-arid and arid drylands, where the majority of the world’s rural farmers and villagers struggle to make a living.

There’s mounting scientific, forensic, and circumstantial evidence the COVID-19 pandemic is not a natural occurrence in which a relatively harmless bat virus (with limited transmissibility) mutated, became aerosolized, and began infecting humans on a mass scale.
What millions of people now understand is that SARS-CoV-2 is a genetically engineered Frankenvirus, developed by Chinese and US scientists, the product of a disastrous, but unfortunately predictable lab accident that occurred in Wuhan, China in late 2019.
This weaponized virus is the genetically engineered offspring of a decades-long biological arms race, disguised as “gain-of-function” biomedical, or biosafety research.
Scientists all over the world—funded by Big Pharma, tax dollars and the military-industrial complex—are collecting viruses, bacteria, and microorganisms and taking them into poorly regulated, accident-prone labs where they are engineered to be more virulent and infective.
This dangerous research is all being done under the guise of “biosafety” and vaccine research. Even as you read this, US scientists are working on making the SARS-CoV-2 virus even more deadly, utilizing lab engineering and animal passaging.
It’s time to put an end to this madness.
It’s time to bring the perpetrators of this pandemic to justice and put them on trial as part of an International Tribunal.
It’s time to strengthen the International Bioweapons Protocol to ban so-called “gain-of-function” experiments forever.

OCA and our sister international network, Regeneration International, firmly believe we can reverse global warming, restore degraded ecosystems, improve public health, eliminate rural poverty and rejuvenate participatory democracy through regenerative and organic food, farming, and land use practices.
Our mission is to expose the truth about degenerative agriculture, corporate polluters, corrupt politicians, and indentured scientists and regulatory agencies.
We’re not afraid to tell the truth about COVID-19, exposing the mad GMO and synthetic biology scientists, military industrial-biological Masters of War, medical mal-practitioners, and would-be digital dictators who have brought on and/or manipulated and profited from the COVID-19 catastrophe.
With your support, we intend to step up the work that must be done to transform our food and farming system, regenerate public health, and stop the so-called Great Reset of the global elite before it metastasizes any further.

Since early 2020, the world has experienced a series of catastrophic events—a global pandemic caused by a so-called novel coronavirus; international lockdowns and border closings causing widespread business closures, economic collapse, and massive unemployment; and an unprecedented curtailment of civil liberties and freedoms in the name of keeping people safe by locking them up in their homes.
We are now living in a world that is increasingly ruled, not by our democratic systems and institutions, but by public health fiat, carried out by politicians who rule by instilling fear and panic.
The good news in all of this is that we can take control of our health and that, together, we have the power to unite and fight back for our health, democracy, and freedom. The time is now for a global awakening. As Dr. Mercola and Cummins remind us, this is the fight of our lives.
Pre-Order your book now
Many of Dr. Mercola’s and OCA’s readers have asked us why we are using Amazon for pre-orders of our new book, since Amazon is obviously part of the problem, not the solution to our Global Crisis. Dr. Mercola puts it quite well:
“The Truth About COVID-19 will be available on April 29th, but you can preorder it now on Amazon. Why Amazon, you may ask? Well, this book talks in detail about pandemic profiteers, and by getting its ranking pushed up via one of the biggest Big Tech companies benefiting from this global pandemic—although I am not thrilled about associating with Amazon—we are actually using their platform against them!”
