Blamed for Bee Collapse, Monsanto Buys Leading Bee Research Firm

(NaturalSociety) Monsanto, the massive biotechnology company being blamed for contributing to the dwindling bee population, has bought up one of the leading bee collapse research organizations.

Wake Me When The Australian Revolution Starts

The large cloud of particles mushroomed up and fell back down looking as if it covered an area of almost half the solar surface as this image, taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, shows.

20 Signs That A Horrific Global Food Crisis Is Coming

(The Economic Collapse) In case you haven’t noticed, the world is on the verge of a horrific global food crisis.  At some point, this crisis will affect you and your family.  It may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow, but it is going to happen.  Crazy weather and horrifying natural disasters have played havoc with agricultural production in many areas of the globe over the past couple of years.  Meanwhile, the price of oil has begun to skyrocket.  The entire global economy is predicated on the ability to use massive amounts of inexpensive oil to cheaply produce food and other goods and transport them over vast distances. read more

More American paranoia? The artical gets worse the more you read. It still doesn’t hurt to buy the odd 10kg bag of rice to store away. With “container gardening” limited space to grow fruit and vegetables works for us. The problem in desperate times would be keeping those bugger thieves away.

Report Spur-throated locust sightings

locust-plague.jpg(TheLand) PASTURE and crops throughout north-west NSW face a serious threat from the biggest outbreak of the unusual Spur-throated locust in more than 40 years. Farmers have reported damage to pasture, corn, cotton, citrus, legumes, and sorghum, around Narromine, Nyngan, Bourke, Walgett, Collarenebri and Warren. NSW Primary Industries Minister, Steve Whan, said the outbreak came off the back of a wet, warm and humid season. “The much larger Spur-throated locust is a ferocious eater and can completely destroy a crop overnight,” he said. “Spur-throated locusts are mainly a tropical species of Queensland and Northern Territory and do not normally reach plague proportions in NSW.” read more

Put ya Bibles down, but be ready again to feel food price hikes hit the wallet.

OCTOBER 2010 FLASHBACK: Thai rain making comes to Qld

royal_rain_maker.jpgOCTOBER 2010 FLASHBACK: (SMH) A rain-making method developed by Thai king Bhumipol Adulyadej is set to aid Queensland in battles with drought after an agreement between the state government and the Thai royal household. The Queensland government's access to the rain-making technology, developed by King Bhumipol over the past 30 years, came a year after the state approached the royal household last year. As a result, Queensland is set to be the first major region outside Thailand where the rain-making technology will be put into full effect. read more

Was the "full effect" three months later from nature or from another screw up by the Bligh government that caused innocent deaths, destruction, lower property values, public debt, and a walk in next election for a woman that most hated before the "full effect" 2011 floods? Those fascist (government merged with unelected corporations) clowns can't even get the municipal drinking water mass medication dosages right.  Thanks to our reader 'rjw' for this important flashback reminder.

Coal miners to blame for Queensland floods, says Australian Greens leader Bob Brown

unnatural_bob_brown.jpg

(CourierMail) GREENS leader Bob Brown says the coal mining industry should foot the bill for the Queensland floods because it helped cause them. The floods are Queensland's worst for nearly 40 years, with more than 26,000 homes affected and at least 16 people killed. Senator Brown said the Federal Government should impose the original version of the Resources Super Profits Tax, and use the funds to pay for the clean-up. "It's the single biggest cause – burning coal – for climate change and it must take its major share of responsibility for the weather events we are seeing unfolding now," he said in Hobart today. read more

Who without blinking would the coal mines pass the "Resources Super Profits Tax" onto? Yes the consumer that's already paying way too much. The day we see two male hump back whales doing what Bob Brown does we'll happily replace "un-natural" with "natural". This is the same Bob Brown that was done and dusted until an unelected business man called Dick Smith came along and funded Bob Brown with private capital. Two things of many that should be left to fail naturally  — private banks like Goldman Sachs and washed up politicians like Bob Brown.

Weather control is no myth: Scientists engineer thunderstorms over Abu Dhabi

(NaturalNews) Discussions of weather control technology used to be limited to the hushed gossip of conspiracy theorists, but it turns out the conspiracy theorists were right (again). Today in Abu Dhabi, scientists have successfully manipulated entire weather systems, causing up to fifty downpours of rain across the Al Ain region the desert nation over the last year. learn more

 
Updated; Thanks to our reader that left this link in the comments showing August 2010 the Queensland government had rain making technology from Thai king Bhumipol Adulyadej. Did someone leave this rain making technology on for too long later causing the 2011 floods?

(SMH) IT IS almost unimaginable the fear 13-year-old Jordan Rice would have felt as the car he and his family were in was pummelled by a wall of water. But as it began engulfing the vehicle, Jordan, who could not swim himself, insisted his younger brother, Blake, 10, be rescued first. read more

I'm proud to be a fellow Queenslander (90km's from the flood) with young men like Jordan around. May you and your dear mum rest in peace young mate.

(SMH) Hundreds of dead snapper have washed up on Coromandel beaches on the North Island of New Zealand, leaving holidaymakers perplexed. The mysterious incident came as the southern United States was hit with a second unexplained mass bird death within a week. People at Little Bay and Waikawau Bay, on the north-east of the peninsula, were stunned when children came out of the sea with armfuls of the fish and within minutes the shore was littered with them. read more

CGI Simulation of Asteroid Impact on Earth

What would happen if a large 500 km (300 mile) asteroid hit planet earth? — We’re not into so called Mayan December 2012 armageddon stories but at the same time we understand it’s a big universe out there and nothing should ever be ruled out, no matter how hard we try to ignore some things. This supposedly happened to earth six times before. I guess my message is, don’t take life for granted, and our so called leaders can’t control everything. [...]
