The Film That Environmental Organizations Don’t Want You To See

According to the filmmakers behind this recent release, this is the film that environmental organizations don’t want you to see, in part because it reveals the truth behind the world’s most destructive industry.

Caution: Now Entering The "Years Of Living Dangerously"

Last week something rare and extraordinarily positive occurred on American television. Fortunately, through YouTube and 350.org, the rest of the world got to see it too. “Something positive?” a critic questions. “If climate change is as bad as you tree-hugger people claim it is, how can anything about it be positive?” The phenomenon tends to […]

"Sugar With That, Or ASPARTAME [Modified E. Coli Poop]?"

Here’s a rather nauseating, if not scary, tidbit about an artificial sweetener beloved to humankind. And also to Monsanto. Aspartame. The second most used artificial sweetener in the world, next to saccharine. Every time you pour those little flecks of NutraSweet® or Equal® into your coffee cup, you’re getting ready to swallow the feces of […]

Moving Beyond The IPCC

The recently released Fifth Assessment Report from the International Panel on Climate Change paints a depressing picture of the likely impacts that climate change is likely to have on both human and natural systems in the coming decades.

A New Way Forward | The World Five Platform

The old culture is broken –  highly dysfunctional and terribly corrupt. The areas of food, finance, energy, healthcare and media are all dominated by a few corporations, and all driven by the singular goal of profit. Government on every level has been corrupted by the 1%. It is this motive of greed that must be […]

Lose Weight and Help the Planet

Usually vegetarians or vegans familiar to me don’t push any agenda. They are content to live and let live, but when someone asks them about their food choices, they will provide information. Sometimes they over share – but generally because they are trying to be helpful, not argumentative. Naturally, discussions about food tend to lead […]

One of the major agricultural pests of the African continent — the Busseola fusca caterpillar — has now developed resistance to the Bt-toxin that GMO corn relies on for its productivity.

Eggless Mayonnaise Tastes Better than Hellmann’s

Do you like mayonnaise? Hellmann’s and Best Foods have been making it for decades and also dominating the mayo market.  The original Hellmann’s came from Richard Hellmann’s wife’s recipe in 1905.
