जीएम बीज, कृषि उत्पादकता और राजनीतिक छल - उत्तम भारतीय सनातन खेती को खत्म करने का प्रयास
ऐतिहासिक तौर पर भारत के किसानों ने दुनिया को यह साबित कर दिखाया था कि चाहे अनाज की जरूरत जितनी भी हो, सब कुछ जैविक और टिकाऊ खेती द्वारा उपजाया जा सकता है और यह काम अनंत काल तक किया जा सकता है । कुदरती खेती करने वाले किसान न सिर्फ हमारा बल्कि धरती की सेहत का भी खयाल रखते हैं । वह पूरे विश्व के अन्नदाता हैं | दुनिया की भूख और भुखमरी का हल उन्हीं के हाथों में है ।
(श्री अरुण श्रीवास्तव ने यह लेख २०१३ में लिखा था जिसे आप अंग्रेजी में यहाँ पढ़ सकते हैं -- )

कुछ उल्लेखनीय अपवादों को छोड़ ज्यादातर कृ्षि वैज्ञानिक नीम हकीमों के जादू के वश में हैं और यह समझते हैं कि हमारे किसान आदिम और अवैज्ञानिक हैं इसलिये उन्हें  `आधुनिक तकनीक’ अपनाना चाहिये । असफल हरित क्रांति को जबरन आगे बढ़ाने वाले अब विफल जीन क्रांति के तकनीकी छल को आगे बढ़ा रहे हैं । वह उन सभी साक्ष्य आधारित विज्ञान को अस्वीकार करते हैं जो नई मनगढ़ंत कहानियों पर टिके उनके अंधे विश्वास को कमजोर करता है ।

India: Genetically Modified Seeds, Agricultural Productivity and Political Fraud

March 24, 2013

The world doesn’t need “modern technology” of poisonous pesticides, destructive fertilizers and patented GE seeds that can’t match 1890 or even 1760 AD yields in India. Modern technology has actually destroyed the nutrition in common foods.

Few notable exceptions aside, majority of agricultural scientists also believe that our farmers are unscientific, primitive and must adopt “modern technology.”
Those who pushed the failed Green Revolution are now advancing the failed Gene Revolution techno-fix. They reject any evidence based science that undermines their faith in the New Gospel. High on Monsanto opiate, they have chosen to ritually genuflect to the eugenicists, the Global Chemical, Food and Seed Cartel who have weaponized food. Without objective appraisal of traditional Indian agriculture they continue to discredit Indian farmers like the old colonialists did. If Indian farm practices had “stagnated for centuries” and caused hunger, malnutrition and poverty the ancestors of these scientists would be dead.
Historical trends and the state of affairs now
Although India has thousands of manuscripts on agriculture management from the times of Rig Ved [8000 BC to 6000 BC] to Arthshastra [Around 320 BC] and throughout the medieval period, the British colonialists relied more on anecdotes of roving pseudo-scientists without truly understanding soil management practices.

Does the Sky Look Unnatural Where You Live ? Have You Ever Wondered Why?

Bringing the critical issue of global climate engineering to light and to a halt is the great imperative of our time. In order to have any reasonable chance of succeeding in this all important battle, all of us are needed to join the fight. Each of us can gain ground every single day in this effort by spreading and sharing credible introductory information with individuals, organizations, and media, that would care if they only knew of the issue and had a dose of solid data to go on. The introduction article below was drafted for the use of the public relations firm which is helping us with media exposure for the Geoengineering Watch Legal Team. This letter can be used by anyone to help with the effort to start "spot fires" of awareness everywhere possible. The more such an introduction to geoengineering is forwarded groups, organizations, media, and individuals (that, again, would care if they knew of the issue), the sooner we will reach a critical mass of awareness. If we all combine our efforts in this battle, we can yet make a profound difference even at this late hour.

An Introduction To Geoengineering/Solar Radiation Management

As President Obama publicly rallies world leaders to move forward with a global response to climate change, a less discussed, but ongoing effort has long since been underway to attempt the management of solar radiation through the spraying of light scattering aerosols into the atmosphere and the direct manipulation of weather patterns — a process otherwise known as “geoengineering.”
