Bill Gates Warns Countries Need To Embrace GMOs Or Citizens Will Starve

By Theodora Filis

Entrenched in action and always on the front lines of saving the world and
feeding the hungry, Bill Gates gets right to the “root” of solving the world's food shortage by putting his money where his friends at the Rockefeller Foundation tell him to.

This week, The Associated Press said Bill Gates believes “Countries can embrace modern seed technology and genetic modification or their citizens will starve.” This comment was directed at the naysayer's of genetically modified (GM) seeds and the belief that “high-tech” solutions to world hunger are bad for the environment.

Why are Bill Gates and The Rockefeller Foundation supporting the proliferation of patented seeds, GMOs, and at the same time, investing tens of millions of dollars to preserve every natural seed variety on this planet in a bomb-proof doomsday vault? Wouldn't it be best to cultivate the world's natural seeds, while preserving them, and nourishing and nurturing our world's farms and precious soil?

Is Gates confused and misled? I think not.

The Global Crop Diversity Trust is based in Rome. Its Board is chaired by Margaret Catley-Carlson a Canadian also on the advisory board of Group Suez Lyonnaise des Eaux, one of the world’s largest private water companies. Catley-Carlson was also president until 1998 of the New York-based Population Council, John D. Rockefeller’s population reduction organization, set up in 1952 to advance the Rockefeller family’s eugenics program under the cover of promoting “family planning,” birth control devices, sterilization and “population control” in developing countries.

Other GCDT board members include former Bank of America executive presently head of the Hollywood DreamWorks Animation, Lewis Coleman. Coleman is also the lead Board Director of Northrup Grumman Corporation, one of America’s largest military industry Pentagon contractors.

And so the plot thickens. Are Gates and his GCDT buddies on a mission from God to feed and serve the world's hungry, or are they on a mission to control the world's population through mass planting and distribution of GMOs?

Cables released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday, January 25, 2012, reveal new details of the US effort to push foreign governments to approve GE crops and promote the worldwide interests of agribusiness giants like Monsanto and DuPont.

A key component of the US plan to dominate world agriculture with GM seeds is the absence of labeling of GM foods. No labeling means US consumers can not exercise informed choices in the marketplace, reducing the likelihood of a consumer revolt.
Last year, Miriam E. Sapiro, Deputy US Trade Representative, urged the European Commission to break its longstanding impasse blocking GM foods. Because GM seeds are patented it is illegal for a farmer to retain seeds for next years crops – offering huge financial benefits over traditional seeds.

If I were to gander a guess why Gates is so keen on feeding the hungry, I'd have to go with keeping up appearances as a free-spirited generous guy who's only concern is for the health and advancement of his own, yet to be revealed, agenda.

US GMO Potatoes Sold As Processed Food In Australia

GM potatoes, grown in the US, can now be imported and sold as processed food in Australia. Simplot, the developer of the GM potato, is a large multinational with brands.

Australian regulators don’t test, don’t require peer-reviewed studies and never refuse GM food applications
Peer-reviewed evidence of damage from eating GM dismissed by a regulator.

FSANZ have ignored scientists warnings of potential harm. The Centre for Integrated Research in Biosafety (INBI) “predicted that dsRNA (i.e. RNAi) could be transmitted to humans through food, and that dsRNA would be sufficiently resistant to cooking and normal stomach pHs to potentially be taken up by cells or circulated through blood.

GM foods are being tested on us

You are probably eating GM food every day.

Currently, GM crops including soy, corn, canola, sugar beet and cotton, are processed into ingredients that avoid labeling in Australia. The GM potato is different. It is a whole food that will contain GM DNA and protein.

Mayflower, Arkansas, Oil Spill

Under-Reported Environmental Disasters

Mayflower, Arkansas, Oil Spill

On March 29, 2013, the 65-year-old ExxonMobil Pegasus pipeline ruptured beneath a subdivision in Mayflower, Arkansas, soaking lawns and streets with an estimated 210,000 gallons of heavy toxic tar sands crude. For Mayflower's 2,200 residents, the existence of a pipeline running under their homes (and partially through the watershed that provides water to 400,000 people) came as a shock.

Considered a "major spill" by the EPA, it sickened hundreds of residents and exposed them to known carcinogens like benzene and to hydrogen sulfide, which causes respiratory illnesses.

Who's Responsible

ExxonMobil. The Pegasus pipeline was built to carry lighter oil north from the Gulf Coast. In 2006 it was repurposed to carry the far heavier bitumen south from Canada. Bitumen is so thick that it has to be heated and diluted with gas in order to flow properly. In November, PHMSA proposed fining ExxonMobil $2.6 million…

Radiation Testing on Humans in United States Widespread!

The health ramifications of human testing are unknown
Radiation Survey: Procedures
Three members of Congress are demanding answers after a St. Louis scholar’s new book revealed details of how the U.S. government sprayed, injected and fed radiation and other dangerous materials to countless people in secret Cold War-era testing. The health ramifications of the tests are unknown. Lisa Martino-Taylor, an associate professor of sociology at St. Louis Community College who wrote “Behind the Fog: How the U.S. Cold War Radiological Weapons Program Exposed Innocent Americans,” acknowledged that tracing diseases like cancer to specific causes is difficult. But three congressmen who represent areas where testing occurred — Democrats William Lacy Clay of Missouri, Brad Sherman of California and Jim Cooper of Tennessee — said they were outraged by the revelations. Martino-Taylor used Freedom of Information Act requests to obtain previously unreleased documents, including army records. She also reviewe…
