Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, November 28, 2015 ( )
Planet Earth is under siege from countless factors. Unimaginable and irreparable damage has been done, there is no going back in any time frame that matters. We are now in a battle to preserve what is left of our planet’s life support systems. The greatest single leap we can make in the right direction is to expose and halt climate engineering. The natural resources that industrialized/militarized society has relied on to sustain itself are waning at blinding speed. Rapidly escalating global conflict is directly connected to the increasing scarcity. Global economic, environmental, and societal collapse is already unfolding. No matter how ominous the horizon has become, the vast majority of the population are so far still bent on remaining in denial. All will be forced to face the truth soon, there is no place to hide from what is unfolding.…

Primates in peril: 50% of our closest living relatives are on the brink of extinction around the world


More than half of the world’s primates are at risk of dying out due to the threat posed by habitat loss and hunting. The Hainan gibbon (pictured) is thought to be the world’s most endangered primate, with just 25 of the animals left living on an isolated island in China

They are our closest living relatives in the animal kingdom, yet more than half of the world’s primates are facing extinction due to our destruction of the habitats where they live.

Burning and clearing of large areas of tropical forest, combined with hunting of primates for food and illegal wildlife trade, has placed many species of apes, lemurs and monkeys at risk of dying out.

These include iconic species such as the Sumatran orang-utan, Grauer’s gorilla, the Northern brown howler monkey and the Hainan gibbon.

Scientists and conservation experts have now updated a report on the world’s 25 most endangered primates based on the current knowledge of the animals numbers and the risks facing them.

Dr Christoph Schwitzer, a primatologist and director of conservation at Bristol Zoological Society who helped compile the list, said: ‘This research highlights the extent of the danger facing many of the world’s primates.


Sumatran orang-utans (pictured) are one of the world’s most threatened species and has been the focus of intense conservation campaigns.

Madagascar has many unique species of primate but many of the island’s lemurs are now threatened, including the Lac Alaotra bamboo lemur (upper), which number just 5,000 animals left in the wild. South American primates like the Colombian black spider monkey (lower) are also under threat from habitat loss

‘We hope it will focus people’s attention on these lesser known primate species, some of which most people will probably have never heard of, such as the Lavasoa Mountains dwarf lemur from Madagascar – a species only discovered two years ago – or the Roloway monkey from Ghana and Ivory Coast, which we believe is on the very verge of extinction.’

‘Some of these animals have tiny populations remaining in the wild and support and action to help save them is vital if we are to avoid losing these wonderful animals forever.

‘This report makes scary reading for primatologists and the public alike, and highlights where we as conservationists must focus our attention over the coming years.’

There are 703 species and sub-species of primates around the world.

Every two years experts from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Bristol Zoological Society, International Primatological Society and Conservation International, produce a list of those most under threat.

In their latest report two species – the Philippine tarsier and the Lavasoa Mountains dwarf lemur from Madagascar – were included on the list for the first time.

The Lavasoa Mountains dwarf lemur was only discovered two years ago and its exact numbers are still unknown but its habitat is already being destroyed.

The report warned that Madagascar and Vietnam are home to large numbers of highly threatened primate species.

This is because many of the species live in isolated pockets of forest that are under threat of destruction.

The Northern sportive lemur from Madagascar is possibly the second most endangered animal to appear on the list with just 50 individuals known to survive.


Although some of the species that appear on the list of the most threatened animals are small and rarely seen, like the Philippine tarsier (upper), others are quite large and noisy species, like the brown howler monkey (lower)

The Cat Ba langur, or golden headed langur as it is also known, has just 60 individuals left on Cat Ba Island in Vietnam.

There are thought to be just 24 Hainan gibbons left on Hainan Island in China.

In Africa, the red colobus monkeys was under ‘particular threat’, as were some of South America’s howler monkeys and spider monkeys.

The Northern brown howler monkey, for example, has less than 250 mature animals living in the wild.

The report warned: ‘All of these species are relatively large and conspicuous, making them prime targets for bushmeat hunting.’

Russell Mittermeier, chair of the Species Survival Commission of the IUCN, said he hoped the report would encourage governments to commit to ‘desperately needed biodiversity conservation measures’.

He said there was growing evidence that some primate species play important roles in dispersing tropical forest tree seeds, meaning they were essential to those habitats.

He added: ‘The purpose of our Top 25 list is to highlight those primates most at risk, to attract the attention of the public, to stimulate national governments to do more, and especially to find the resources to implement desperately needed conservation measures.

‘In particular, we want to encourage governments to commit to desperately needed biodiversity conservation measures.’


Lemurs in Madagascar are among the most threatened according to the report, including the red ruffed lemur (pictured). Exact numbers of this species are not known but they are extremely rare

The Roloway monkey lives in the forests of from Ghana and Ivory Coast but is thought to be on the ‘very verge’ of extinction, according to experts behind a new report on the world’s most endangered primates

U.S. retailers begin taking farmed fish off their shelves as antibiotic overuse destroys fish farming industry

(NaturalNews) The biggest seller of organic foods has decided to greatly reduce the number of antibiotic-treated salmon it purchases from Chile, a move that’s expected to a deliver a huge financial blow to the aquaculture industry.

Costco recently announced that they will no longer be buying the majority of its salmon from Chile, the world’s second largest producer of the fish, following an increase in consumer awareness regarding the dangers associated with the widespread use of antibiotics.

The extensive use of human drugs on farmed animals, including fish, is contributing to an increase in superbugs, or microorganisms that have grown resistant to antibiotics, posing a severe threat to humans, as these types of infectious diseases are more difficult to treat.

Costco drastically cuts farmed salmon purchases from Chile

Previously purchasing about 90 percent of its salmon from Chile, the membership-only warehouse says it will now buy just 40 percent from the South American exporter as they look to Norway (the world’s largest salmon producer) to supply the majority of their demand.

Over the last few years, Wal-Mart, Wegmans and Safeway have also reduced purchases of Chilean salmon.

For eight years, Chile has been struggling to contain the spread of a virus that is killing millions of fish; in response to this and widespread bacterial disease, Chilean farmers have turned to antibiotics in order to keep their fish stock alive despite unsanitary conditions. In 2008, Chile used nearly 350 times more antibiotics on its farmed salmon than Norway, its chief competitor.

Industry officials say this is because Norway has developed vaccines to protect their salmon against illnesses, a development that Chile has been unable to achieve due to a lack of funding.

Under a new “information access law,” Chile’s government, for the first time, revealed information detailing its use of antibiotics in salmon production following a request by the environmental group Oceana.

While the high usage of drugs raised alarm, the industry defended its practices, claiming that the antibiotics are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is the only method available to fight fish-borne illnesses including rickettsia.

Several years ago, however, three Chilean salmon-farming companies were caught using a number of drugs not approved by the FDA, some of which include the antibiotic flumequine, oxolinic acid and the pesticide emamectin benzoate, according to

The illness plaguing millions of salmon, rickettsia, is caused by a parasitic bacteria known as SRS which is carried by sea lice that causes skin lesions and hemorrhaging in infected fish, resulting in the swelling of their kidneys and spleen, which eventually kills them. The disease was first reported in Chile in 1989.

Environmental groups blame unsanitary conditions and cramped pens as “super lice” infect marine life

The environmental group Food & Water Watch says[PDF] ocean aquaculture, “the mass production of fish in large, floating net pens or cages in the sea — has often led to environmental and other disasters in the countries where it has been practiced commercially.”

When farmed fish escape into wild, it’s a major cause for concern as they pose an enormous threat to wild fish due to the diseases they carry.

Unsanitary and cramped living conditions allow disease to run rampant among farmed fish (similar to factory farms on land), making them more susceptible to pancreatic and amoebic gill disease, infectious salmon anemia (ISA) and an increase in sea lice, a destructive parasite commonly found in highly stocked net pens.

Sea lice has also become resistant to pesticides, allowing them to morph into “super lice,” killing both captive and wild fish.

Despite assurances that farmed fish wouldn’t survive in the wild, they’ve been identified in more than 80 rivers in British Columbia. More than 500,000 farmed fish escapes occurred in 2009, according to Norwegian farming statistics, including cod, halibut, salmon and trout.

It’s also feared that farmed fish, which have minimal genetic diversity due to inbreeding, may mate with wild fish and over time cause them to lose “natural traits that help them survive in the wild.”

Catastrophic Pacific Ocean Die-Off, The US Military’s All Out Assault On The Web Of Life


Many have heard about some of the die-offs occurring in our oceans, but most have no understanding of how catastrophic the actual reality is.


Fukushima is where all the fingers point as the source of the carnage along the coast, but there is much more to the story. Those who control the US military have virtually no regard for any of the destruction they are wreaking on the entire web of life, including marine life. The US Navy has long since been using live depleted uranium ammunition and devastating sonar devices along the Pacific coast (the US Navy is now also waging electromagnetic warfare along our forests and our coasts). The US (and other nations) have also routinely dumped nuclear waste into our oceans. The excerpt (shown below) from the US Navy’s “Environmental Impact Statement ” is beyond shocking. Their position is this, if there are no studies to prove the harm they are causing, then no harm was caused.

“The study area for consideration of impacts on marine plants and invertebrates includes the open ocean west of Washington, Oregon, and Northern California….Aircraft overflight and training activities are assumed to have no impacts to marine communities, because impacts of sound on plants and invertebrates are unknown and difficult to quantify.”


The statement below was appropriately presented (along with other pressing points) to the US Navy’s EIS staff by concerned Oregon resident Carol Van Strum.

The question of past and current Naval activities is highly significant. For example, the EIS acknowledges that past and present activities off the Oregon coast have involved the use of rounds comprised of depleted uranium. Uranium, depleted or otherwise, is an exceptionally persistent material in the environment. The EIS revelations of Navy use of depleted uranium thus raise very serious concerns about how long the Navy has been using depleted uranium rounds in the Pacific Ocean, how much was used per year, where that use has occurred, and what environmental impacts have already accrued from such use, such as uptake by fish and synergistic effects with other wastes and products from Naval exercises. The EIS mentions none of these issues.


In 2010 I personally spoke to a US Navy Public Relations representative that very cavalierly confirmed the Navy’s use of depleted uranium ammunition for “practice” off of the US West Coast. She seemed to have no idea of the dangers posed by this ammunition, but rather was only repeating whatever she was told.  The US Military has also permanently contaminated vast areas of land masses with its deadly depleted uranium ammunition. An epidemic of birth defects in Iraq and elsewhere is the legacy of this use. But there is an even larger ongoing assault on the ocean, the planet, and all life, global geoengineering/weather warfare. The blatant atmospheric aerosol spraying so clearly seen of the coast of California in the satellite photo below is nothing short of shocking.


Geoengineering is undeniably a major factor relating to the die-off of the oceans. The US military is certainly the single largest participant in the ongoing global climate engineering insanity (though all major powers are involved). Geoengineering is destroying the ozone layer which has subjected the planet to deadly levels of UV radiation greatly contributing to the die-off of plankton populations around the world. The plankton die-off has taken the foundation out of the food chain for marine ecosystems. Geoengineering has also radically altered upper level wind currents which have in turn altered ocean currents. This has contributed to the massive methane release in the Arctic which holds the future of our planet in the balance if it continues. In regard to the Pacific ocean, the altered wind currents have greatly contributed to the record heat buildup. This in turn has fueled the extreme algae blooms, sea bed gassing of methane, hydrogen sulfide (which create hypoxic and anoxic zones), and thus even more marine die-off. There is also the less known form of geoengineering, ocean fertilization, which is also taking its toll on our once thriving seas. Seven decades of highly toxic and destructive global geoengineering programs have inflicted unimaginable decimation to the planet. These programs (combined with the other US military operations already mentioned), have played a major part in the collapse of life in our oceans, most especially in the Pacific. If the oceans die, we die.


Our military brothers and sisters must awaken to what they are participating in, the destruction of their own planet and the health of their own citizens. Military personnel are sworn to protect their countrymen from all threats, foreign AND DOMESTIC. All of us are needed to help awaken the population, this includes the families of military personnel. Pass on credible information to all those that need to see it, every day counts in this battle. Make your voice heard.

Can a Magic Spell Take Down Monsanto?

Can a Magic Spell Take Down Monsanto?

At this point in time, there’s no question that the corporate reign is upon us. Our politicians are beholden to their corporate backers, and everything we touch—from the gloves on our fingers to the chicken (or chicken-free) fingers we inhale at lunch—have deep roots tied to industry and the multinational corporations at the center of it all. But what if a magic spell—a death curse, specifically—could change all that?

Artist Steven Leyba has taken to putting a magic spell of sorts on Monsanto and other corporations at the forefront of human health and environmental destruction. And as unbelievable as it may sound, it may just be working.

The “any means necessary” ethos has become quite literal, especially for Leyba. Between 2010-2011, Leyba produced his 13th handmade book—his medium of choice. This one was focused specifically on Monsanto, the chemical-turned-engineered-foods poster corporation for everything wrong with the food system.

The massive food industry has become anathema for many, with locally grown and produced goods becoming the ultimate rebellious #Occupy-esque move in resisting corporate control over our food system. In 2012, the year after Leyba completed his book, sales of locally produced foods and goods topped $6.1 billion. And demand continues to rise–not just for local and organic foods, but for GMO-free and antibiotic-free foods, as well as foods free from artificial ingredients.

Like millions of Americans struggling with diet-related illnesses, Leyba tried to get healthier by changing his diet. “In 2010 I had been overweight and decided to get healthy. I started eating large amounts of fruits and vegetables from my local grocery store. I got sick and that was the time I found out about GMOs,” Leyba told Organic Authority in an email. “I was appalled. I couldn’t understand why I would get so sick by eating what I thought was so healthy. When I switched to organic food I got healthy again.”

Leyba said his motivation was deeply personal, but “also universal.”

“I had to make art about this,” he explains, “and in the process I learned how insidious the Monsanto corporation was.”

Leyba’s Monsanto book itself is thick and demented in appearance, like something you might find in an archeological discovery—perhaps an old alchemist’s or shaman’s handiwork. It’s constructed with canvas pages that he added grommets to, “I bolted the pages together and painted acrylic then sewed beads into the pages and collaged information about GMOs, anti-Monsanto pamphlets, and some of my writing against Monsanto,” he explains.


Most of the paintings were of Monsanto executives he says, including the company’s CEO Hugh Grant, as well as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas (who worked for Monsanto for years). But it’s not exactly coffee table book material: “Their [sic] is pubic hair all over his 2 portraits,” Leyba explains. “I had the idea that in the future Monsanto would make it so everyone could grow their favorite foods on their faces: ‘You are what you eat, you eat what you are; MONSANTO,’” he explains.

But Leyba didn’t stop with his multimedia protest. A student of numerous art mediums, the occult, and Native traditions, Leyba publicly put a death curse on Monsanto and Nestlé, citing their for-profit eco-terrorism as his motivation. “Death curses work like any manifestation of will like Gestalt psychology; you visualize and act in accordance and at some point what you can conceive and believe you can achieve,” he explains.

“Medicine men practice this and even medical doctors to some extent practice this. They plant suggestions in people’s minds for healing and those people start to do things that promote their own healing,” he says. “For me I see a great need to identify the cancer (Monsanto and Nestlé) and attack with full force and mirror back this so-called Black Magic they are doing to all of us.”

For Leyba, “good art” can be both a psychological and emotional motivator. “I want the things that are killing people and the environment to die (Monsanto- Nestlé). I wish them death.”

Leyba points to Monsanto’s genetically modified foods and herbicides and Nestlé’s recent bad press over water theft in California, and the company’s links to child slavery in manufacturing its chocolate products. He says it is “a form of justice to project disdain and destruction on those that purposely destroy other people and the environment.”

And despite the growing demand for labeling GMO foods in the U.S. and more corporate transparency, Leyba says the corporations still get so much handed to them in the way of tax credits, subsidies, and corporate personhood.

“Multinational corporations have more rights than individuals,” he says, “and now with trade laws they have more rights than countries. My art forces the dialogue and creates the new language in opposition to corporations that believe in and act only on profits and losses. They are above and beyond the law. Except maybe the laws of nature.”


“Many may not believe in curses but many curses do work,” Leyba says, explaining that while death curses are not common in today’s world, from numerous Indigenous perspectives, they not only work, but are necessary.

Does he think the corporations can be forces for good? While Leyba did get the attention of Monsanto (he points to a Facebook thread where a company representative responded), he is doubtful that corporations, specifically the two he’s death-cursed, will be capable of making the type of transformation desperately needed.

“What is needed,” he says, “is for people to create the new symbols for change and not let corporations control the narrative.”

Despite the dark nature of Leyba’s work, he’s hopeful, too, “It’s wonderful how well the organic movement has spread,” and he says consumers can do their best to boycott these brands. “It’s hard with Monsanto because it is in everything. Nestlé has so many products but they can be identified. Corporations will adapt to the economic climate. I feel if more people were proactive in not buying the products, the big Goliath will have to adapt or perish.”

As for his art, Leyba says it has turned many people into creative activists. “It forces the conversation we all need to be having about fascist Trans-national corporations that decide what we eat and how we think about the world.” Leyba says the world “is tired of big business ruling their lives, bodies, and environment.”

“I encourage everyone to Death Curse Monsanto and Nestlé. Justifiable Death Curses are effective on many levels, fun, cathartic,” and says Leyba, “completely legal.”

Note: Personally, IMO this is White Magic because it benefits humanity. And, it certainly gives a whole new meaning to “We are the ones we waited for”. I’ve always believed we will win the war to reclaim our planet thru accessing our Avatar skills, there a people working at some in some of the darkest corners to eliminate the dark ones and their technology.

For example, if  CERN has been taken down, it’s because people have been working in the background (most likely with ET/ID assistance) at the psychic level to break down the programming. So let’s get busy, if you’re not already spinning up magic to break down the matrix and create and new paradigm…it’s crunch time my friends! This is why we were born :)

Criminal Syndicates Are Driving Wildlife Crime Around the Globe

Corruption enables the trafficking in pangolins, elephants, rhinos, and other species.

Nov 19, 2015
John R. Platt


Earlier this month, customs officers in Guangdong province, China, came across a startling discovery on a boat trying to enter the country: 2,674 frozen pangolins, stuffed into boxes and awaiting illegal delivery.

Pangolins—eight species of scaly anteaters from Asia and Africa—have in recent years become the most heavily trafficked wildlife on the planet. Their meat is considered both a delicacy and a status symbol in China and other Asian countries, while their scales are highly valued in traditional medicine.

Most of the pangolin trade—like that in elephant ivory, rhino horns, and many other animal products—is driven not by individual poachers but by criminal syndicates that originate in Asia and extend their reach into some of the most important wildlife regions around the globe.

(See Pete Bethune and his team investigate the criminal syndicates—and put themselves directly in harm’s way—in this week’s episode of The Operatives, which airs on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Pivot, the television network owned by Participant Media, TakePart’s parent company. Join the Operatives on their missions and take action to protect all wildlife by clicking here.)

“These criminal syndicates are very fluid and adaptable,” said Charlotte Davies, crime analyst for the Environmental Investigation Agency in London. They often spend years and enormous amounts of money building networks of local criminals, middlemen, shipping routes, and other elements to enable trafficking of wildlife products. Each of these pieces can easily be shifted around to minimize risk. All of it is designed to shield the people at the top of the syndicates from detection and prosecution.

The trade is international, with poachers killing animals in one part of the world, middlemen shipping them to another (or through multiple nations), and syndicates selling them to consumers in various countries. “For example, there’s one syndicate in Laos that’s been linked to South Africa, Mozambique, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and China,” Davies said.

Many of the networks hide their crimes behind legal enterprises. An EIA investigation in Tanzania last year revealed that a syndicate was using the legal trade in sea cucumbers, themselves high-value products, as a cover for trafficking in elephant tusks.

This trade in multiple forms of wildlife is another aspect of the flexibility. Syndicates are set up to quickly shift from one species to another as supplies become available, said Vincent Nijman, a professor at Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom who has studied the trade in pangolins, tigers, and other species. They may even smuggle pangolins one day while keeping their network busy by transporting legal products on other days.Wildlife traders have also often been linked to smuggling of other illegal products, such as drugs and firearms.

Orangutans Are Dying as Indonesia Burns

EIA’s investigations, and those of many other organizations, revealed that this trade is frequently enabled by corruption and bribery. Most recently the Kenyan port of Mombasa was identified as a major source of smuggled ivory. Despite the rampant crime linked to the city, no smugglers have been arrested in Mombasa for the past year and a half.

“The ability of these groups to corrupt law enforcement and officials undermines the rule of law in both the countries where the wildlife is sourced from and those it is smuggled through,” said Davies.

The trade also undermines local economies. “It’s a human rights issue,” she said. “There’s massive tourism potential from wildlife and forests.” That potential is destroyed as habitats are stripped of their native species.

Corruption is just one of the reasons so few of these syndicates have been stopped. “Speaking very generally, illegal wildlife crime hasn’t historically been a priority of any government,” Davies said. “There are some notorious syndicates or criminals, but if the agencies haven’t been prioritizing these crimes, then they wouldn’t have necessarily been identifying the people behind the trade.”

Davies said things are beginning to turn around. In 2013, President Barack Obama vowed to tackle wildlife crime, and other governments have followed his lead. “People are being investigated and arrested,” she said. “There’s tangible evidence of networks being disrupted.”

The challenge remains to target people beyond low-level poachers or couriers, who have the most risk of arrest but the least amount of responsibility for their crimes. “We need to identify the whole network, as well as the financiers,” Davies said.

Two Forest Rangers Pay the Ultimate Price for China’s Demand for Rare Wood

The men were murdered shortly after busting an illegal logging site in Cambodia.

Nov 17, 2015

It is a familiar story in Southeast Asia. In truth, it has become a familiar story almost everywhere: China’s vast appetite for luxury items was the underlying cause of last week’s execution-style killing of two government conservation workers in Cambodia.

Sieng Darong, a 47-year-old forest ranger, and Sab Yoh, a 29-year-old police officer, were murdered as they slept on Nov. 7, shot with AK-47-style heavy weapons. A third member of the team survived with injuries, and a fourth escaped. The killings happened shortly after the team confiscated chain saws at an illegal logging site in northwestern Cambodia’s Preah Vihear Protected Forest.

Investigators have arrested six soldiers from the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces on charges of illegal logging in the incident. One of the six has already been jailed to serve a prior sentence of 10 years in prison on an armed robbery conviction. But so far, no formal murder charges have been filed, nor has anyone above the level of foot soldier been implicated in the case.

The killings happened in an area heavily affected by the illegal trade in rosewood (also known as hongmu), a rare precious wood prized in the Chinese luxury market for ornately carved beds and other status symbols. In a comment on the killings, an Environmental Investigation Agency campaigner noted that “China is the global center of hongmu demand and its log imports in 2014 were the highest on record, topping $2 billion in value, with Cambodia the fifth largest contributor to this industry.”

The two murder victims in the current case were associated with the New York–based Wildlife Conservation Society. In a statement Ross Sinclair, director of WCS Cambodia, said that organization was “encouraged by the swift action by local authorities.” He also praised the Cambodian government “for assigning high-level investigators to this case.” But he added, “We are committed to ensure that the murders of Darong and Yoh are honored by the prosecution of those who killed them and by working to ensure the illegal logging networks are dismantled and the forests and wildlife are protected.”

That will be harder than it sounds. Cambodia has one of the worst overall deforestation rates in the world, according to a 2014 report from the University of Maryland. That didn’t even count the trade in rosewood, which is harder to detect by satellite. But that trade is lucrative, largely illegal, and made possible only by widespread official collaboration. A report early this year from Global Witness, another investigative organization, linked Cambodian rosewood exports to officials in the military and at the highest levels of government, including key allies and advisers of longtime Prime Minister Hun Sen.

In the normal order, the murder investigation would probably fade away when international attention inevitably shifts elsewhere. But “the interesting thing about this case is…suddenly it’s Cambodian military versus Cambodian police,” said one observer on the scene. “They can no longer blame this on activists. This is premeditated violence within their own ranks. The Cambodia police are very unhappy with the Cambodian military, and that ups the stakes considerably.” The case may thus be “working its way up the chain. There are people who don’t want to let it lie, because of what was done.”

One sign of that determination: In the aftermath of the killing, conservation groups issued a joint statement expressing their alarm and concern, which by itself would be business as usual. The statement declared that “this heinous crime highlights the importance of a strong collaboration between conservation NGOs, their community partners and the government to empower law enforcement officials and rangers in their important mission to fight against illegal activities that destroy the country’s natural capital.” But in a remarkable show of unity, the director general of Cambodia’s Forestry Administration has posted that statement on his agency’s website.

Meanwhile, the hunger for luxury continues to drive the seemingly unstoppable demand for rosewood objects in China. The Global Witness report urged China to impose a ban on illegal timber imports. But there is very little evidence that China gives a damn, any more than it does about tigers, elephants, rhinos, pangolins, or a host of imperiled species. We can hope, perhaps, that the ghosts of Darong and Yoh—husbands, fathers, honest defenders of the natural world—will haunt the buyers as they lie in those delicately carved rosewood beds.

In October 2015, deluges caused fatal flash-flooding along the French Riviera, Turkey’s Black Sea coast, Greece’s islands, southern Italy, and elsewhere in the Mediterranean as ‘medi-canes’ pummeled the region. ‘Medi-cane’ is, of course, a newly created term to describe this new weather pattern. Climate shift has also spread to the Middle East, where raging storms have brought weeks of unprecedented flash-flooding all the way from Egypt to Iran. Intense hailstorms last month turned the Arabian desert into rivers of ice, while Cyclone Chapala – the second strongest Arabian Sea cyclone behind only Cyclone Gonu in 2007 – became the first ever storm to make landfall in Yemen.

Strong seismic activity last month included multiple volcanic eruptions in Mexico spewing ash thousands of feet into the air, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake in northern Argentina that damaged infrastructure, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake that killed 400 people in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and the worst ever landslide in Guatemala killed 350 people. Sinkholes swallowed a street in England and a car in Sicily, while the land opened up to form a new ravine in Wyoming. Many Chinese in the path of Typhoon Mujigae witnessed tornadoes for the first time as the powerful storm dropped multiple destructive tornadoes. Waterspouts came ashore in Florida, France, Italy, China, Tunisia, the Canary Islands, often preceding deluges that sent rivers of mud down streets and out to sea.

Typhoon Koppu set a new rainfall record in the Philippines: a staggering 52 inches (1.32m) in 24 hours. In a matter of days, Los Angeles went from experiencing a record heatwave to devastating hailstorms and record rainfall; the resulting mudslides buried hundreds of vehicles on a busy highway. Category 5 Hurricane Patricia dumped 20 inches (0.5m) of rain in Mexico’s southwest, turning streets into rivers. Patricia was – at one point, in terms of sustained wind speeds – the strongest storm ever recorded, globally, and was the strongest ever for the Western Hemisphere in terms of both wind speeds and barometric pressure.

Texas went from experiencing record heat and wildfires earlier in the month to being flooded for the second time this year, with some rainfall records breaking those set in May. Hurricane Joaquin combined with another storm system to produce a “one-in-1,000-year” rainstorm that inundated parts of the US Eastern Seaboard. Hardest hit were the Carolinas, which saw floodwaters reach record levels. In the ‘bizarre’ department last month, we’ve got video footage of a ‘ghost city’ apparition above Foshan in southeastern China and a ‘moth-like’ UFO filmed in Ohio, On Halloween, an asteroid – discovered only two weeks prior – passed by Earth, just as large meteor fireballs were seen across Europe.

These were the signs of the times in October 2015…

Geoengineering Update, Dane Wigington 11/14/15 **Editorial Note on Paris False Flag**

Ed. note: It’s been awhile since this publisher went on rant, but after witnessing so many high vibe people lose their perspective and allow the latest state sponsored terror event in France to harvest enormous sums of energy over the weekend – I feel the need to speak out. For what’s it’s worth…here’s my perspective on these mass energy harvesting events.

False Flag events like Paris are designed to harvest YOUR energy, PERIOD. They’re specifically created as distractions. Lets put this in perspective: 150 people dead in Paris is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared to the millions who lost their lives in wars of aggression since 9/11. The terror this event strikes in the heart of “media onlookers” is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared to the terror that children and adults living in Gaza, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and in many places around the world experience every single day living in a world of war, scarcity and mass confusion. It’s ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared to the collapse of the biosphere and the mass extinction taking place around the planet, Earth is losing 200-300 species a day…

And, guess what…human’s are on a fast track to extinction as well, because we can’t survive without the web of life.

At this critical juncture, the planet needs 100% of our energetic focus. The current planetary transformation has been scheduled for aeons, Team Dark has long planned for diversions to sideline this global transformation at every turn.

From a multi-dimensional perspective, these false flags are designed to split and fracture our energy so we don’t have the necessary focus to make a real impact at the “alchemical level”, because our energy is diluted and “split” in many different directions. At this time, there are extremely potent, inbound Cosmic energy’s transforming everything around us. NOW is the time to harness this extremely potent energy and redirect it to transforming our inner world.

NOW is the time to allow our Oversoul  (our Avatar self) to integrate with the Human Self, and to fully embody our skinsuit. The full integration with our OverSoul allows us to Co-Create the alchemical transformation to the 3D world, which will ultimately lead to the collapse of the Matrix.

From my pov, when we remove our “energy and focus” from false flags and all the corruption existing at the 3D level; when we refocus our energy on raising our vibrational frequency to the 5th dimension and above – that is when we WILL “end simulation”. At that point, when humans reach a critical mass of High Vibrational, Awakened Souls the world will transform in a blink of an eye.

We’re getting close….

But before that can happen, we must stop feeding the “energy harvesting” beast that’s devouring our energy at every level of density imaginable.

Yes, we must remain empathetic and aware of what’s happening on the “global stage” – I’m not saying stop caring about outer world conditions. But, it’s important that we “observe” from a sacred neutral space in the heart and not get sucked into an energy harvesting situation where our time, emotional and spiritual energy’s are fractured from Divine Source.

When outer world conditions make us “feel bad”, or lowers our frequency to an uncomfortable state, we’re not aligned. We’re allowing our energy to be harvested and are vibrating at a lower rate. Human’s can’t effectively manifest desired outcomes when vibrating at lower frequency’s of depression, anger, angst, fear, worry or doubt.

Creating a new paradigm is done from an energetic space of “unconditional” love, joy and bliss.

Our alignment to Source is based on heart energy and how we feel. When we’re sitting in front of the computer trying to “figure it out”, we’re in ego and disconnected from our heart and Source energy. When we allow ourselves to get pulled into energy harvesting events like false flags, our vibration is lowered and we begin Co-creating undesirable outcomes in our personal lives and within the collectives manifested experience.

People say they’re trying to wake people up, or “expose” the false flag.  First, we can’t wake anyone up that isn’t ready…that’s an exercise in futility, one that’s anchored in Savior programming. Second, if you’re a high vibrational individual you’re wasting precious energy by attempting to “expose” that which is obvious and you’re doing so with countless other Sherlock’s investing all their time, energy and ego into “solving the case.”

Please, send France and Europe your prayers and meditations for peace, yet keep in mind this is a False Flag designed to harvest energy from a multi-dimensional level. Stay calm, relaxed and in a state of “non-resistance” to allow these incredibly transformational cosmic energy’s proper integration time with your Light Body. Also, during times of heightened energy it’s highly beneficial to unplug from FB and the internet, to help remain emotionally removed from what’s unfolding on the “world stage”.

Remember “It’s just a ride…” (RIP Bill Hicks!)

Many people are now waking up from the dream, people are “lighting up” everywhere. So, we can naturally expect more false flags being staged from the 4th dimension in a desperate attempt to keep the unwashed masses asleep and imprisoned by terror, anger, fear, uncertainty, hopelessness. Most of all the PTW want people embodying a HIGH state of resistance to the very fine, exquisite, subtle energy’s coming in, which are nothing less than pure, ‘spun gold’ light from Source. It’s Mana, and the PTW don’t want us merging our consciousness with this Source energy, because they know that’s how we are transforming and taking this planet back.

In a future NOW moment, it’s already done.

So, it’s crunch time my friends. Lets remain focused on “Ending the ‘Grand Experiment’ Simulation” and, stop allowing the “system” to harvest our energy at any level.

When we’re grounded firmly in our own personal reality bubbles, false flag events in other of the world have no impact on us, unless we chose to “allow” energy harvesting in our field of experience. Everything in life is a matter of choice, now is the time to make the hard choices of what we allow into our field.

The common denominator which affects everyone single person reading this, is our beautiful Mother Earth. Right now, she needs our full attention and commitment to a healthy planet for the next seven generations to come. God bless Dane Wigington for having the courage to continue pounding the war drums every week, because it’s critical that we turn our focus on the “Elephant in the Room” which threatens all life on Earth…geoengineering and climate change.

These are not false flags. IMHO the collapsing biosphere deserves our fullest attention, and is most likely the reason why the PTW are creating chaos everywhere. They know the Earth’s web of life is collapsing, they have no solutions and are desperate to create diversions while they seek avenues of escape for themselves. I personally believe the answers to healing the planet lie within the collective consciousness of an awakened humanity, when enough people are vibrating at a higher frequency the Earth Mother will heal.

We are the living cells of the Earth’s body. As we heal, She heals.

As above, so below.

Last week post from David Martin on taking Personal Responsibility for what we post, directly relates to my thoughts on the human powers of Co-Creation.

It’s also given me much food for thought on the future direction this blog will take.

Much love and blessings in the Spirit of Aloha!…Annette


Published 11/14/2015

Of the countless sources of anthropogenic damage to our once thriving planet, climate engineering is at the top of the list. As the biosphere collapses, industrialized civilization and society will follow, there is no other possibility. The global power structure is preparing for the coming collapse as rapidly as it  can, while at the same time fueling the process. Global unrest is accelerating by the day, the “terror attacks” strategy of control by fear should be expected from the power structure. Will WWlll be the the next card played by those in power as they run out of options?
The global economy is free falling into total collapse. Not only is every form of US freight screeching to a halt, the global dry freight index (BDI) is at all time record low levels (the BDI is the most untarnished economic barometer on the planet). The same story holds true for China’s container freight which is also plummeting. What happens to the deteriorating glut of global container ships? They are consumed by the industrial cancer in massive coastal salvage operations. The unused and obsolete vessels are torn apart under extremely dangerous conditions by a work force that amounts to slave labor.
The rapidly unraveling climate system is already wreaking havoc on harvests, marine ecosystems, marine fisheries, and fresh water fisheries. Many of the globe’s megacities are facing certain inundation from the rapidly rising sea levels.The damage to the planet is much more severe and advanced than any official sources are disclosing. Finally, some of the longstanding cover-up of this damage is being exposed as the Exxon-Mobil investigation continues to unfold. Too little, too late, we are through the guardrail and heading to the bottom of the canyon. The walls are closing in which means the power structure will utilize all available options they have to distract populations from the bigger picture (like the toxic spraying going on above their heads) and to galvanize public support for increased government control. The “terrorist attack” card was to be expected and now we have it in France. The power structure chess pieces are being put into place. As we brace for impact on many fronts, we should all continue to sound the alarm to the best of our ability given our individual circumstances. If we combine our efforts, we could still change the flavor of what we face. We may still be able to salvage what is left of the Earth’s live support systems, but only if we all pull together by being active, committed, and effective in the fight for the greater good. This is the latest installment of Global Alert News.…

Meet the Incredible Group of Women Who Are Fighting Poachers and Saving Animals in South Africa

In South Africa, rhino populations have fluctuated for years, and though many have recently celebrated the increase in rhino numbers, they have just as quickly mourned the loss of thousands of rhinos as a result of a surge in poaching activity.

The Balule Nature Reserve in South Africa is a private wildlife reserve that shares an open border within Kruger National Park. Kruger, currently home to 9-12,000 white rhinos and 580-650 black rhinos (along with thousands of other species), has seen an influx in poaching activity in recent years with at least three rhinos poached daily for their horns. The poaching crisis occurring in Kruger has, naturally, had an effect on the animals within Balule Nature Reserve, too.

Two years ago the head warden of The Balule Nature Reserve in South Africa sought to address the poaching crisis by bringing together individuals from local communities to form a group that could effectively protect the rhino and the other species in and around the reserve. In doing so, the groups could not only protect the species but educate other locals on the importance of preservation, many of which were hesitant to engage with foreign park officials and quick to succumb to the profit that could be earned from poaching. Today, they’re known as the Black Mambas.


The Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit

In 2013, the Black Mambas were founded as an anti-poaching unit. They’re are unique to other anti-poaching units as they’re comprised mostly of women, many of which were recruited right out of high school. These women are trailblazers in a field often dominated by men. To become a part of the Black Mambas, one must complete six weeks of intensive tracking and combat training alongside an existing deployed unit. The Black Mambas’ rigorous training, along with the help of trained dogs, aerial support and the groups rapid response have allowed them to be incredibly successful in their anti-poaching efforts.



In a field of work and position of power that is often delegated to men, the women of the Black Mambas APU take great pride in the work that they do. All passionate about their native heritage and wildlife, many of the women are mothers and insist that protecting and preserving their home and the animals in it is crucial to their way of life. They stress that they want their children, and grandchildren, to be able to enjoy endangered species like the rhino for generations to come.

In an interview with the New York Times, a 26-year-old member, Lukie explains,“The next generation must know the rhinos and elephants in life.If poaching is allowed, they will only see these animals in a picture.”

It is this understanding of the grave reality facing many of Africa’s most prized species and their unrelenting drive to protect these animals that can be accredited with the Black Mambas’ success, but their positive influence on their community extends far beyond this.

Empowering Women and Spreading Conservation

Critics initially questioned how successful a group of rangers made up primarily of women could be, but they were quickly proven wrong. The women’s strength, compassion and attention to detail have allowed their unit to flourish. Since the group’s deployment in 2013, the women of the Black Mambas have effectively eliminated 12 poaching camps, three bush meat kitchens and have seen a 76 percent decline in snaring and poisoning activities. The group is also responsible for the early detection of numerous poaching rebels in the area. Though the Mambas are often unarmed during patrols, Leitah Mkhabela described the courage of the women, “I am not afraid, I know what I am doing, and I know why I am doing it. If you see the poachers, you tell them not to try, tell them we are here, and it is they who are in danger.”

Many women apart of the unit are breadwinners for their family, working tirelessly not only to protect wildlife within the greater Kruger National Park but also to feed their families. It is this sacrifice that has protected so many rhinos from being poached. In September, the Black Mambas were winners of the United Nation’s top environmental award, The Champions of the Earth.

Apart from protecting some of the most vulnerable animals in the world, the Black Mambas’ unit also aims to create long lasting bonds within their communities. The women of the Black Mambas recognize the importance of liberating locals that inhabit the areas surrounding the national parks, to show them how crucial conservation of endangered animals are to the entire region and in doing so, poachers have a difficult time finding recruits in local communities.

Thus far, it seems to be working: In the past 10 months, the reserve patrolled by the Black Mambas has not lost a single rhino.


How Can You Help?

Although The Black Mambas are supported by the Environmental Monitor Program, they count on donations to further their anti-poaching measures. The women of the unit are often in the bush for 20-21 days out of the month and always in need of food rations and quality uniforms. A donation to The Black Mambas can ensure they have the most up to date equipment including radios and cameras to continue their efforts protecting the rhinos in and around Kruger National Park.

While we can’t all play such an influential role in protecting species on the frontlines like the Black Mambas, we can all make a difference to help endangered species in our everyday actions.

Marcin Jakubowski: Open Source Ecology Lecture

Lecture, April 2, 2014 at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, CMU College of Fine Arts. Presented in partnership with the CMU School of Architecture Spring 2014 Lecture Series.
TED Senior Fellow Marcin Jakubowski, a Princeton-trained physicist-turned-farmer, is using the power of the DIY movement to create a free, open-source “starter kit for civilization.” Jakubowski directs the Open Source Ecology initiative, which aims to develop a set of easy-to-follow, open source blueprints for the 50 machines most essential for modern life. The 50 machines comprise the Global Village Construction Set: a “lifesize, scalable, modular LEGO construction set” for building modern life, and include an automobile, an induction furnace, and a bakery oven.
Jakubowski is testing the feasibility of this concept on “Factor e Farm,” a 30-acre parcel of land near Kansas City, Missouri. According to its website, Factor e Farm “aims to take what civilization has learned about what it means to thrive, and determine whether it is feasible to use abundant local resources to create industrial civilization. [….] This is a Big Hairy Audacious Goal, but its achievement has huge implications on solving Wicked Problems.”
Marcin Jakubowski’s ideas and work have earned him international acclaim, including distinction as a TED Senior Fellow, a Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow, and a White House Champion of Change. He has been profiled by news outlets and academic journals worldwide. During Jakubowski’s visit, he will first participate in a panel discussion with School of Architecture faculty members Dana Cupkova, Madeline Gannon, and Matt Huber about the social responsibility of digital design; then he’ll offer a lecture and participate in a Q&A session about his work with Open Source Ecology and Factor e Farm. Jakubowski also seeks to meet one-on-one with talented designers, creators, and thinkers interested in helping kickstart Factor e Farm as the first full-scale implementation of Open Source Ecology.

Monumental Air Test Planned to Examine Geoengineering

by Elle Nov 4, 2015

Scientist along with e pilots set out to test Chemtrails phenomenon, all while breaking a few world records in the process.

LOS ANGELESNov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Potentially the most difficult environmental test in history is about to take place. World renowned scientist Dr. J. Marvin Herndon, along with two volunteer environmentalists from the National Crime Scene Cleanup Association (NCSCA), are setting out to find conclusive evidence about the existence of “chem trails”. Award Winning Director/Producer Michael J. Murphy will be documenting this incredible feat.

Chem trails, or otherwise known as “Geo-Engineering”, is a phenomenon that occurs globally. Jets flying at high altitudes often leave behind vapor trails, known as contrails. Chem trails differ in that they do not dissipate in a short time. Many people believe that this is due to chemicals being sprayed into the atmosphere to manipulate climate change or alter weather patterns.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be granting waivers to allow two pilots to surpass the current Guinness altitude record in a powered para gliding aircraft of 24,898 feet. With State of the art air monitoring equipment, the two pilots will be flying into the chem trails at around 30,000 feet above sea level, battling winds in excess of 100 miles per hour and temperatures around -70 degrees Fahrenheit. The two pilots will be collecting air samples and data never before seen.

“It is truly a privilege to be a part of such an epic environmental study, all while breaking Guinness world records for both speed and height in a powered para glider.” says Pilot Enzo Pagani. “This is what I live for!”

All tests will be monitored by Dr. J. Marvin Herndon, who will be submitting his report for peer review. Michael J. Murphy, whose previous work includes the award winning film, “WHY in the World are they Spraying?”, will be filming and documenting this process along the way. The team plans on preforming the task sometime in the Spring of 2016.

About Dr. J. Marvin Herndon
Dr. J. Marvin Herndon is an American interdisciplinary scientist with a BA degree in physics from the University of California, a PH.D. degree in nuclear chemistry from Texas A&M University and was a post-doctoral assistant in geochemistry and cosmochemistry at the University of California.

Hemp Plant Found To “Eat” Radiation and Drive Away Toxicity – Hemp Fields Should Be Planted Around Fukushima

fukuActivists have been shouting they want an end to GMO foods for more than a decade now, and Cannabis Sattiva L. supporters have been at it for even longer, so why has the US government finally given farmers the right to legally grow industrial hemp, the non-hallucinatory, sister plant of medical marijuana?

It is safe to say that industrialized hemp should have been legalized years ago. With THC levels so low, you would have to smoke more of it than Snoop Dogg to get ‘high’ – and that’s a lot of Cannabis, it is ridiculous that it was classified as a drug at all. It has numerous uses and could replace many crops that require heavy irrigation and pesticides, like cotton, for example. Here’s the most interesting fact though – hemp plants ‘eat’ radiation.

When the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant Reactor 4 accident caused severe radioactive contamination in 1986, families within a 30-kilometer area of the site had to be evacuated. Radioactive contamination was later found at 100 kilometers from the accident site, and Fukushima radiation levels are still to be determined, with the Japanese government planning on dumping their overflowing radiated water tanks into the Pacific as we speak.

As with the Chernobyl incident, scientists are finding radioactive emissions and toxic metals–including iodine, cesium-137, strontium-90, and plutonium–concentrated in the soil, plants, and animals of Japan, but also now throughout the United States and all along the West Coast – from Canada to Mexico. Even the EPA has admitted that any living tissue can be affected by radiation exposure. High levels of thyroid disease and cancer have been reported in Japan, and our ocean is dying by the day. Scientists are also expecting that children born on the US West Coast will suffer a 28% higher incident of hyperthyroidism – a disease that accompanies radiation exposure. Even the livestock that grazed on irradiated grasses grown in contaminated soils developed meat with high concentrations of these unwanted toxins after Chernobyl, and Fukushima is exponentially worse.

Dr. Ilya Raskin of Rutgers University’s Biotechnology Center for Agriculture and the Environment, who was a member of the original task force sent by the IAEA to examine food safety at the Chernobyl site figured out that through phytoremediation utilizing hemp, among other plants, the soil, and thus the food supply could be saved from toxicity.

Phytoremediation is the process whereby green plants remove toxins from the soil. Plants can extract specific elements within their ecosystem and still thrive. They accumulate the toxins in their tissues and root systems but remain undamaged. Sunflowers have been known to do something similar for centuries, eliminating heavy metals and pesticides from damaged soil. Two members of the mustard family are also useful for this process – Brassica juncea and Brassica carinata, but it seems hemp is quite amazing at sucking up radiation.

Granted, the government is probably dumbfounded at what to do with the Fukushima radiation headed our way, but the legalization of hemp just might balance some of the toxicity scientists expect.  Fortunately, California, one of the states that will be hardest hit, has already legalized industrial hemp, but it has to wait for the federal government to give states the right before they can actually grow it. The Farm Bill only allows ‘research’ growth at certain institutions in 10 states currently.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp. In light of Fukushima, let’s join our countries’ founders to grow it too. You can help clean the soil in your area if hemp or medical marijuana has been legalized in your state, and help it to pass in further states by being vocal with your state and federal representatives.


Royal Dutch Shell To Abandon Canadian Oil Sands Project Just Weeks After Dropping Arctic Oil Drilling Venture

Royal Dutch Shell PLC said it would abandon another high-cost oil project, just weeks after it abruptly canceled a $7 billion drilling venture in the Arctic. The news arrives as slumping crude oil prices and challenging economics make it harder for oil and gas companies to justify unconventional and risky projects.

“We are making changes to Shell’s portfolio mix by reviewing our longer-term upstream options worldwide, and managing affordability and exposure in the current world of lower oil prices,” Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden said in a Tuesday statement. “This is forcing tough choices at Shell.”

Oil prices have slumped sharply in the last 16 months as crude production far outpaces tepid global demand. Brent crude, the international benchmark, has traded below $50 a barrel in recent months, down by more than half from its 2014 peak. Lorraine Mitchelmore, president of Shell Canada, said last year the company’s oil sands business needs prices at $70 a barrel to meet internal profit standards.

Shell has also cited $70 a barrel as the point at which oil drilled in the Alaskan Arctic could compete in global markets. If prices stayed below $50 a barrel into 2030, however, the offshore venture would be for naught, Ann Pickard, Shell’s top executive for the Arctic, told Bloomberg Businessweek in August.

Shell shocked the energy industry last month when it announced it would stop exploring for oil in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea. The energy giant spent $7 billion over several years on a single offshore well, and early analyses of core samples suggested drillers would find a bounty of oil. But in late September, the company said it did not find sufficient indications of oil and gas to warrant further exploration and that it would seal and abandon the well.

1.4 million Brazilians sign zero deforestation bill

the zero deforestation bill to the Brazilian congress

For the past three years, Greenpeace Brazil has been collecting signatures in support of a bill to establish a zero deforestation law in the country. As a result, the group were able to present draft legislation to the Brazilian congress last week

On 7 October, accompanied by senators, religious leaders, celebrities and other supporters of a ban on the felling of Brazil’s forests, Greenpeace Brazil formally presented the draft legislation to the Brazilian congress – signed by 1.4 million Brazilians.

“We submit this bill to congress and now it’s time for them to reflect on the will of the people,” Cristiane Mazzetti of Greenpeace Brazil said in a statement.

“There is enough space for development without cutting down more of our forests,” said Mazzetti. “Democracy is strengthened by ensuring access to natural resources for everyone, for our generation and future generations. This is why stopping the destruction of our forests is essential.”

The annual rate of Amazon forest loss in Brazil has slowed by 75 percent since the early 2000s, but roughly 5,000 square kilometres (1.2 million acres) of rainforest is still destroyed every year. Greenpeace says that’s the equivalent of 700,000 football pitches. Even some lawmakers joined the group in saying that it’s time for the country to make it official policy that economic development activities not be undertaken at the expense of the Amazon rainforest.

“Democracy is strengthened by ensuring access to natural resources for everyone, for our generation and future generations. This is why stopping the destruction of our forests is essential.”

“I signed the petition in 2012 and I admit that I was anxious to see it completed,” senator João Capiberibe said in a statement. “This is certainly an important step towards the objective of zero deforestation in Brazil and then beginning a new project for developing the country, one that is not based on environmental destruction.”

A recent analysis by Paulo Moutinho of the Amazon Environmental Research Institute and Steve Schwartzman of the Environmental Defense Fund supports Greenpeace’s assertion that zero deforestation is entirely possible for Brazil to achieve without foregoing economic growth.

“Brazil succeeded in reducing Amazon deforestation by more than 80 percent since 2005 while maintaining robust growth in beef and soy production,” Moutinho and Schwarzman write. “There are at least about 56,000 km² of degraded cattle pasture in the Amazon that can be reclaimed for agriculture, as well as ample scope for intensifying cattle raising and improving yields, freeing up even more land.”

Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff has pledged to eliminate illegal deforestation and restore 12 million hectares (about 30 million acres) of forest by 2030 as part of broader efforts to combat climate change, itself a major threat to the wellbeing of tropical rainforests the world over.

But zero illegal deforestation by 2030 is a “considerably less ambitious goal” than many Brazilian states have already proposed for themselves, Moutinho and Schwarzman say.

Pará, for example, a major agricultural state, has adopted a target of 80 percent deforestation reduction by 2020 and zero net deforestation thereafter. And Acre state, which still retains nearly 90 percent of its original forest cover, is “already implementing the most ambitious and successful system of payment for environmental services in the tropical world focusing on forest conservation,” Moutinho and Schwarzman write.

Greenpeace and other forest advocates, like bishop Guilherme Antônio Werlang, want Brazil’s federal government to take those ambitious efforts as examples and commit to swifter action to end deforestation of the Amazon altogether.

“We have to change the economic model and create the Brazil that we want,” Werlang said in Greenpeace’s statement about the delivery of the zero deforestation bill to congress. “It is an important time for us to continue to press forward, not only for small changes, but to consider a profound change.”
