NEW ADDITION TO THE RANKS OF ORGANIC COTTON BREEDERS. Expert in both organic and GE cotton breeding, Jane Dever choose organic over cotton seed controlled by GE seed monopolies. "It’s rare that a plant breeder goes from developing genetically modified crops at a major biotechnology company to breeding varieties for organic and non-GMO farmers. Jane Dever, associate professor at Texas A&M’s AgriLife Research and Extension Center, is unique in having done just that. As global cotton breeding manager for Bayer CropScience, Dever put GM traits into cotton plants. Now she focuses on keeping GM traits out of organic cotton varieties...'What a lot of folks don’t understand is that ‘breeding’ and ‘GM trait development’ are two entirely different things,' she says. 'It did not take long to understand that companies like these are not in the seed business unless they can realize growth from GM traits'...The three major companies that sell cottonseed—Monsanto, Bayer CropScience, and Dow AgroScience— don’t offer non-GMO varieties."

Contrasting their self-serving spin, Economist Paul Craig Roberts concisely explains why it is the 'ecological economists' who most honestly explain reality. "Food production is a source of large social costs. Indeed, it seems that the more food producers are able to lower the measured cost of food production, the higher the social costs imposed on society...When Purdue University plant pathologist and soil microbiologist Don Huber pointed out these unintended consequences of GMOs, other scientists were hesitant to support him, because their careers are dependent on research grants from agribusiness. In other words, Monsanto essentially controls the research on its own products...Many countries have put restrictions on GMO foods. Lawmakers in Russia equate genetically engineered foods to terrorist acts and want to impose criminal penalties." Jim

RALPH NADER ENDORSES THE GROWING 'FOOD DISCLOSURE' MOVEMENT.

Nader assures us that since Vermont passed their no-strings-attached GMO label law, Industrial Food & Ag are operating in panic mode. "There is no scientific consensus about the risks of eating genetically engineered food, according to a statement last year signed by nearly 300 scientists. The scientists agree that 'Concerns about risks are well-founded' and that a 'substantial number' of 'animal feeding studies and reviews of such studies...found toxic effects and signs of toxicity' in animals fed genetically engineered food, compared with controls. 'Some of the studies give serious cause for concern,' the scientists write...These questions of risks and safety have festered for years because the big agrichemical companies use their intellectual property rights to deny independent scientists the ability to test genetically engineered crops, or to report their results. Scientific American called these restrictions on free inquiry 'dangerous.' 'In a number of cases,' the magazine reports, 'experiments that had the implicit go-ahead from the seed company were later blocked from publication because the results were not flattering'...There's a great lesson in all this: when left and right join together, they can defeat big corporations and their subservient politicians. That's the theme of my new book, Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State." Jim

I would add an 11th: significant savings are gained when you cook from basic organic ingredients as opposed to relatively expensive thaw-and-heat factory-prepared organic food. Stir-fried (with organic sunflower oil) fresh organic zucchini (from the Farmers Market) combined with organic short-grain Lundburg Rice (in a 25-pound sack from the local Co-op) with organic tamari is a quick easy meal easily adaptable with the progression of summer vegetables.

Standing up for farmers' right to farm without the threat of invasion by Biotech's GE contamination, Steve Marsh is moving ahead with his appeal of a single judge's bad judicial decision. "“It is too early for either the pro GM or non GM or organic industry to draw any conclusions from the case now that it will be appealed. The Safe Food Foundation has been disappointed at much of the media coverage extensively quoting pro GM groups celebrating Steve’s loss. Let us remember that Steve could lose his farm fighting for his right to farm without the threat of GM crops blowing onto his farm every time his neighbour chooses to plant next door to him,” said Scott Kinnear." This excellent video (6:51) provides background. Steve needs our help if you are able to DONATE. Thanks! Jim

More young people are making the choice to live their passions and connect with the earth. "When he graduated in 2004, he moved to New York to work in investment banking, but he found the work unfulfilling...Young farmers cite many reasons for pursuing careers in farming: Desk jobs are stifling, they want to be their own boss, and organic and locally grown food has become so popular they feel they can make a decent living." A second article in the LA Times offers a West Coast version of the same phenomena. Jim http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-young-organic-farmers-20140608-story.html#page=1

The positive effects of good organic food are sophisticated and intricate and thereby challenging to identify and measure. However, this important study represents significant progress in proving the superiority of organic food. “…both animal studies and in vitro studies clearly indicate the benefits of consumption of organically produced food instead of that conventionally produced.” Jim

MONSANTO ACCUSED OF FRAUD AND BIOPIRACY IN FILING FOR PATENT ON TOMATO.

In fact, the tomato came from a public gene bank in Germany. “'Because crossing tomatoes is not patentable, Monsanto deliberately rephrased the patent during the period of examination to make it appear as if genetic engineering was involved. However, careful reading of the patent shows that this is simply fraudulent. These tomatoes were not produced by transferring isolated DNA. The European Patent Office should have picked up on this,' says Christoph Then for No Patents on Seeds!." Jim

ANALYZING THE EFFECTS OF THE STEVE MARSH COURT RULING.

Monday, 02 June 2014 Category Potatoes in History 0 Comments

Australian organic farmer Steve Marsh's GE contamination episode heightens clarity that "coexistence" between organic and GE crops is not only illegitimate and a fraudulent concept but it is morally indefensible because it requires subjugation of the right of organic farmers to be secure on their farms from the unwanted trespass of destructive transgenic (GE) technology. "'If any organic food consumers or producers want to maintain a strict and rigid GM-free standard for their organic products, the judgment means it will be harder to do this,' said Joe Lederman, Managing Principal, FoodLegal. 'It is not impossible but there will be a huge cost in doing so.'" Citizens have a right to healthy food free from transgenic content, and organic farmers have a right to grow that for those who desire it and their own families. Jim

Important twenty-seven point outline was prepared by Attorney Peter Drucker, Executive Director of 'Alliance for Bio-Integrity.' "Although most Americans (including those who serve in government) are unaware of it,
genetically engineered foods are on the market only because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has covered up the warnings of its own scientists, misrepresented the facts, and violated explicit mandates of U.S. law." This is MUST READ material. Jim

Steve Marsh has exhibited extraordinary courage - and he deserves our thanks - for having stood up to Monsanto in an effort to establish that organic farmers have a right to farm without invasion by Biotech contamination. "Henry Rowlands, the Global GMO Free Coalition Coordinator reacted Wednesday; “Steve Marsh is a great man to have stood up to what was obviously a Biotech industry funded legal campaign. It is a shame that the WA Supreme Court did not see beyond the arguments of the GMO and pesticide lobby in Western Australia." Jim

BREAKING NEWS! JUDGE DENIES JUSTICE FOR AUSTRALIAN ORGANIC FARMER STEVE MARSH IN LAWSUIT OVER MONSANTO GE CONTAMINATION.

Judgement Summary:

 


In a ruling released just hours ago, in a case being monitored internationally, family farmers Steve & Susan Marsh of Kojonup, Western Australia, lost their claim for monetary damages and a permanent injunction to prevent future damage. The judge failed to recognize the decertification decision of organic certifier NASAA, and therefore ignored the extreme financial loss experienced by the Marshs caused when the GE contamination damaged and prevented full use of their farm.
The Marshs were forced to recover damages from their neighbor, Michael Baxter, because carefully crafted Monsanto Licensing Agreements absolve the notorious multinational biotech corporation from legal product liability and instead shifts all responsibility to Monsanto farmer-customers. The result of this denial of justice is that the Marshs face an uncertain future and their ability to continue farming lies in jeopardy.
The Marshs and their lawyers have 21 days in which to file an Appeal. This post's primary link is to the six-page Judgment Summary.

The detailed 150 page ruling itself may be found here: http://decisions.justice.wa.gov.au/supreme/supdcsn.nsf/PDFJudgments-WebVw/2014WASC0187/%24FILE/2014WASC0187.pdf

In this case, the local farmer is a Somali immigrant, Hawa Ibrahim on Packard Farm in Lisbon, Maine. “'My goal has always been to empower patients to find health and take the best care of themselves,' Kenerson said. 'Oftentimes, patients say they can’t afford to eat healthy, or they’re just uneducated on cooking or nutrition in general. So our goal in starting this is to support our local farmers and our patients. Long-term, our goal is to have an actual farmers market in the Freeport office.'"

National political staffer Molly Ball gets some of it right but she has not done her homework and falls prey to Industrial Ag's crocodile tears 'I'm the victim here' false narrative. Still, how far we have come as the tide now shifts away from Biotech's death culture. "'I know dozens, personally, of scientists from all kinds of backgrounds—from neurobiologists to systems ecologists to entomologists—who have serious questions about [GMO] technology,' Doug Gurian-Sherman, senior scientist for the Union of Concerned Scientists, told me recently...But if GMO proponents have a credibility problem, it’s largely self-inflicted. Many of today’s aggressive proponents of GMO science were yesterday’s global-warming deniers...In 2007, then-Senator Barack Obama made a vague campaign pledge to 'let folks know whether their food has been genetically modified.' But the Obama Administration’s line on labeling has been closer to the food industry’s talking points...'I talk to Tea Party people, Occupy people, churches, everybody,' he says. 'Everywhere I go, all parts of the state, people want labeling. There are very few people who don’t want to have a say in this issue...'" Jim

NEW STUDY SHOWS AMAZON GROWTH BENEFITED BY GOVERNMENT FAVORITISM AND PREFERENTIAL TAX TREATMENT.

Mainer Stacy Mitchell explains the losers include shuttered Main Street businesses. "That sales tax still matters this much to Amazon’s fortunes is quite remarkable. One might imagine that the company’s size and efficiency, its vast online marketplace and formidable distribution logistics, would be more than enough to outrun its competitors. But in fact, not having to collect sales tax in most states still provides a significant competitive edge, even at this late date...But this study reveals what Jeff Bezos has undoubtedly known for years: Amazon’s success, its track record of shuttering local businesses, is as much a product of government favoritism as it is of its own ingenuity....the online giant is still exempt in more than half the states and continues to devote considerable energy and financial resources to maintaining that status. This new study makes it abundantly clear why. As one of the study’s authors told the New York Times, 'I think this is their dirty little secret, something they’ve never been forthright about it — the extent to which this sales tax advantage has benefited them.'

Reasonable French suspicion of GE crops serve as impetus to protect their citizens. "'This law aims to give a legal framework to our country, to ensure that a ban is applied,' the French agriculture minister, Stephane Le Foll, told the Senate at the start of the debate. France adopted a decree in March halting the sowing of Monsanto's insect-resistant MON810 maize, the sole GMO crop allowed for cultivation in the European Union."
