Time to start governing for the future.

Santos’ main environment statement on its proposed $3 billion coal seam gas project in north-west NSW lacks key data on groundwater impacts, salt disposal, air pollution and biodiversity, government agencies have found.

In their submissions, agencies such as the NSW Environmental Protection Agency and DPI Water said they did not find “critical” issues to recommend the project not succeed. They do, however, detail gaps in many aspects of the project’s environmental impact statement (EIS) that hinder their ability to assess those effects.

Want to shop GM-free? Well you’re in luck! We’ve compiled this list to celebrate the growing number of companies choosing to label their products GM-free or non-GM. By voting with our wallets, we can support our GM-free farmers and food producers.

Breaking News from Paris.

By Christina Sarich, Natural Society, December 4, 2015

If you’ve been waiting to finally see Monsanto – one of the most hated companies in the world – to pay for its ecocide, knowing harm of human life, and devastation of our pollinators, then you won’t have to wait much longer. Several activist groups joined by food and farming experts are suing Monsanto for their crimes against humanity. [1]

Finally, Monsanto, the US-based, transnational company responsible for introducing multiple genetically modified crops and numerous toxic chemicals into our environment – including saccharin, aspartame, polystyrene, DDT, dioxin, Agent Orange, petroleum based fertilizers, recombinant bovine growth hormones (rGBH), Round Up (glyphosate), Lasso (an herbicide used in Europe), Bt toxic plants, and more – will have to answer to the world for its reign of terror. Monsanto has acted with severe negligence, and the hubris and supremacy of a corporation given personhood, but no longer.

With the emphasis on herbicides as a regenerating agent, by local so called land-care groups, the future seems to be more truly environmental if the focus from this action takes the poisons out of our flora, fauna, air and water. Photo below shows the severe erosion after Coral trees were poisoned next to Wilsons Creek.

An honour for me to have such passionate environmentalists viewing and walking through some of the regeneration zones here.

Busy sunny afternoon with pumpkin soup and cheese scones followed by discussion and planning for the World Focus day on September 17  educating people on Monsanto and its poisonous legacy, from GMOs and cross contamination to its herbicide and pesticide contamination.

Attenborough on… climate change

“There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans are playing in it,” he says. “Personally I would be absolutely astounded if population growth and industrialisation and all the stuff we are pumping into the atmosphere hadn’t changed the climatic balance. Of course it has. There is no valid argument for denial.”
