How to Cancel the Earth’s Sixth Great Mass Extinction

We learned on Friday about a new scientific paper that finds we’re sliding helter skelter down the slope to hell in a handbasket – in other words, headed for the greatest mass extinction of vertabraeic life on Earth since that of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

Of course, the ‘usual suspects’ are being blamed for the unprecedentedly enormous number of “modern human–induced species losses” – implying by this title that the whole of humanity is to blame. And its timing, being released at the same time as Pope Francis’s decision to jump on the climate change gravy train, cannot be coincidence. In other words, God is so fed up with us making a mess of things that he’s going to destroy the human race… that’s the sub-text anyway. Where’s Noah when you need him? However, when we actually read the fine print of the scientific paper, we realise it is not about us – it’s them.

This sixth mass extinction on Earth is occurring not as a result of us breathing out too much carbon-di-oxide, but because of the Western-backed military-industrial complex being led, as it is, by old dinosaurs who believe that the way to health, wealth and happiness is continual and perpetual war for ever and ever Amen. So they use the world as their stage to create never-ending theatres of war against each other, in which they play both sides, and in which we’re used as cannon fodder with any losses incurred counted as mere ‘collateral damage’.

But equally, these tyrannical Tyrannosauros Rex elite are also waging war against the Earth with their industrial agricultural methods – aka modern factory farming – in which they use the waste and by-products from the manufacture of their weapons of war as fertiliser and herbicides. They don’t realise that if you wage war against Mother Nature, She will respond in kind and the outcome is a no brainer. Mass extinction.

The paper’s scientists (Gerardo Ceballas et al) admit that the impending mass extinction has nothing to do with climate change which ‘hasn’t really got going yet’ (sic) but because of modern Big Agri processes which are robbing the atmosphere of too much nitrogen.

Basically, the story is this: ammonia is an essential ingredient in explosives, which is produced from nitrogen. The nitrogen for producing ammonia at one time came from saltpeter, a natural mineral found in the ground and imported from Chile. However a trade blockade with Chile during World War 1 meant that the saltpeter could no longer be acquired in that way. As a result, two scientists – Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch – developed a way to pull nitrogen (N2) out of the air itself, of which N2 makes up 80 per cent.

After the World Wars, the Haber process was used to create fertilisers and grow feed for an ever and exponentially increasing number of factory-farmed livestock as consumers were persuaded by the advertisers employed by the military-industrial complex to expect their diets to include more and more meat.

“Due to its dramatic impact on the human ability to grow food, the Haber process served as the “detonator of the population explosion”, enabling the global population to increase from 1.6 billion in 1900 to today’s 7 billion. Nearly 80 per cent of the nitrogen found in human tissues originated from the Haber-Bosch process. Since nitrogen use efficiency is typically less than 50 per cent, our heavy use of industrial nitrogen fixation is severely disruptive to our biological habitat.” Wikipedia.

The atmosphere is so depleted of nitrogen that an unprecedented number of vertebrates are now going extinct including, not too far behind them, us. But all we have to do to halt it is to switch back to farming as we used to … organically and naturally. Organic farming combined with the old knowledge about when to plant according to moon cycles and seasons, will produce far more food anyway, and much healthier too.

It’s a simple solution, but I doubt we’ll hear much about it, when the much preferred scam, guilting us about breathing out CO2, is such a great money spinner for the bloated, billionaire elite who run this world, many of whom will have their money invested in Big Agriculture, Big Pharma and Big Chem… in other words, the military-industrial complex that is causing this mass extinction.

In the meantime, all we can do is return to growing our own vegetables and fruits as naturally as possible, and hope we survive the extinction of the old dinosaur caste.


Shop GMO-Free in the UK app

We’re the first to bring out an app containing the GM status of more than 10,000 foods sold in UK supermarkets, Shop GMO-Free in the UK, which you can download for free here!

get-the-app

With the Shop GMO-Free in the UK app at your fingertips, you’ll be able to join with us, to ‘persuade’ food manufacturers to help us regain our food sovereignty, to use our right to decide what sorts of foods they should be supplying us with, in a language they can understand. In other words, we can vote with our shopping baskets!

The Shop GMO-Free in the UK app contains the GM-status of about 10,000 brands on sale in supermarkets in Britain today, and it is continually updated.

With this app, it couldn’t be easier – it’s the no hassle way to buy foods for yourself and your family that are guaranteed by their manufacturers to be free from GMOs and from products from animals fed on GMO-free feed. In this way, you can influence the whole debate…

It worked in Germany, where meat and dairy producers are now being required to feed their cattle with GM-free feed again, when shoppers refused to buy the other kind. (See How to get British supermarkets to return to GM-free meat and dairy).

It’s also been making a difference for shoppers in America, where big food companies are being forced to remove GM ingredients from their products because customers are gradually refusing to buy them. (See Record numbers of US companies switching to non-GMO seeds and GMOs facing downturn on world market).

With huge international trade deals like TTIP being hammered out in private rooms, well away from the democratic process and public accountability, the only leverage we have is in our consumer power. (See The lies behind the EU’s transatlantic trade deal and Secret emails reveal how UK ministers plotted with GM lobbyists to bring GM foods into the UK.)

We hope that our app will make a huge difference… by giving everyone the information they need to make the choices that are best for them and their families.

    “they use the waste and by-products from the manufacture of their weapons of war as fertiliser and herbicides”- amazing how many people don’t know this. Big vats of chemicals left over after WW2 used to poison the earth in the war against “weeds.” If people look nonplussed at me when I tell them this I say haven’t you noticed how much pesticides came on the market in the 1950s and 1960s?! Excellent post.
